    Sorry if it's been covered, tried searching, but........

    Wondering if/where you can set the controls to be less responsive/sensitive. While I'm capturing video, results are a bit jerky and sudden when making yaw maneuvers.

    I can do it on my $50 Hubsan right on the controller, but the Nazam software is still a bit foreign to me. Guess it's the aviation lingo that confuses me.
    Thanks.

    One thing you could do is put it in ATT mode when doing critical filming. It is smoother, since the quad is not correcting position, especially correcting for the wind.

    You can change the values for gain by hooking the quad up to your computer with a USB cable and running the Assistant software. I don't know much about the effects of changing them.

    To get really smooth video, a gimbal would be the way to go, of course.

    Thanks. I'm installing a 2 axis gimbal now, but the rotational movement will still appear jerky and fast. I'm trying to dampen my stick movements a little. Especially when it's up where I can't really see the yaw rotation very clearly.
