    Hi, I am having issues adjusting my Zenmuse Tilt Control Gain using the Phantom software. I called DJI's customer service, and they were unable to solve the issue and recommended that I make a post on this forum.

    The issue is, that no matter what adjustments I make on the Tilt Control Gain, the Zenmuse gimbals speed does not change.
    Has anyone else experienced this?
    Does anyone know of a solution?

    Is it a 2D or 3D model?

    Tilt control gain is only available with the 3D. DJI should know this!

    I was hoping that was not the case.
    The guy who shot this video said he was able to get that opening shot by adjusting the tilt control on his H3-2D. https://vimeo.com/m/72576578

    He did it using the old software though.
    Could it be a software compatibility issue?

    Nope, the 2D is not adjustable through the software. For reference that opening shot in that video was played in reverse. There is no way you could descend that quickly and be that stable. Not immediately easy to spot but when you know what you are looking for you can see it.

    The only way to get the H3-2D to slow down is to use a Futaba radio and adjust the channel on the transmitter that controls the gimbal, or there are some that modify their stock radios with a twist knob that makes it a little easier to smoothly operate up and down.
