    Is there a setting that turns on a center mark for alignment of the camera center to objects?

    I think this would help with landing and setting POI in that mode.

    You can turn on diagonal lines to augment the 3x3 quadrant lines, but there isn't a specific way to mark the center. Though the diagonals should pretty much tell you where the center is.

    Thanks. That actually prompted me to look at the camera settings for the Grid. Turns out there is a center point that can be turned on. I think this gets it.

    If you are taking above HDMI output for FPV goggle: Yes align the diamond to the v shaped down arrow. That will point the P3 to home point.

    In case your diamond is left or right, move left stick accordingly to get to center.

    You may also need to read Az value to position your P3 wrt to the north.

    Hope this helps

    In the camera settings you can enable grid lines, grid lines with diagonals, & a center dot. I use the latter.

    I stand corrected; I must have missed the center dot option. o_O
