I was curious about possibly doing an airplane or helicopter style flight simulator recording. In other words, camera pointed straight out the nose, locked. I'm guessing, that flying the P3 with the gimbal block in would not be good for the motors, but I don't know the actual design. If the gimbal maintains its position only through the gyroscopes, then it's likely not a big deal. However, if there's a direct drive, then there would be a problem. Does anybody know just how the gimbal maintains or changes position?
