    I know how to change the pitch on my camera but how do i change the yaw?

    When i go to rc control settings I can change the c1 and c2 for:

    Camera settings
    Reset gimbal yaw
    Switch gimbal mode
    Switch gs/fpv
    Clear flight route
    Battery info
    GIMBAL PITCH/YAW
    Undefined

    I expect the option Gimbal Pitch/Yaw to enable my Gimbal dial to switch between pitch and yaw but all it really does is prevents my gimbal dial from changing my yaw.

    Is something faulty? My yaw still slightly adjusts when i turn or bank in the direction of my movement and the camera is always rock steady.

    Thanks

    The camera yaw is not adjustable in the same way the tilt is. You can't manually control it. The only purpose the gimbal yaw serves is to dampen left/right movement so you don't get abrupt pans when rotating the aircraft. Other than that, the camera will always face forward. Only way to yaw the camera is by rotating the aircraft.

    If you notice camera tilt when flying left or right, check your settings. Gimbal FPV mode will cause tilt when flying sideways. change it to Follow mode.

    Yup, changing yaw would give you a nice view of the landing gear.
