    Attached is a partial article from yesterday's NY Times. It shows a "Pan Motor" for moving the camera left and right. Is there a way to do that with the PV2+ camera from the controller or app?

    The "pan motor" only rotates a few degrees as part of the gimbal stabilisation, and no, you can not control it.

    On top of that you really wouldn't want to see the legs of the landing gear anyways...

    Didn't think so, but thought I'd ask. Was hoping it was an unofficial sneak peek at another future firmware upgrade in the planning stage.

    Regarding the landing legs, yes true. Hadn't thought of that.
