    What am I supposed to be seeing? It looks like he is just flying the phantom manually.

    Looks like the gimbal is allowing the camera to tilt with the Phantom when turning instead of stabilizing the shot...

    From what I understand the H3-3D does have an FPV mode that will lock roll to the airframe while still stabilizing yaw (and maybe pitch). I don't have the gimbal myself, I just remember reading about that when it was announced.

    Does this require the h3-3d to work? Will the h3-2d with the v3 firmware work as well?

    I've been doing the same with all my non-DJI gimbals for awhile now.

    I saw that it's available on the Phantom 2 Vision +,. but wonder how it's implemented with the H3-3d. (how does one turn it on or off remotely of in the field?

    I was just thinking this afternoon that there are times when I would like to lock roll while still stabilizing pitch and yaw. That would be great if H3-3D allowed that. Mine is due in on Wednesday, so will report on roll lock soon.

    I think (and I could be wrong) it's had a "follow-me mode" enabled in simple bgc. it's a setting that allows the yaw to lag slightly behind to give the impression of smooth banking etc.

    I can't find the video to set it up (and I don't have a gimbal on my vision) but this gives you the idea

    hope this helps

    Hello

    Can anyone post a screenshot of the Phantom 2 assistant software where you find this "FPV mode"?

    Click on 'Advanced', then 'Gimbal' tab, there you will find a checkbox underneath the gimbal config sliders labelled 'FPV Mode'
    .

    Ok good, that's for the Phantom 2 assistant software... Now does anyone knows where to activate this FPV mode on something else than a Phantom 2??

    Exemple: F450 with Naza V2, GCU, H3-3D...

    There is no such option in the DJI Gimbal assistant software v1.1... so it seems to me a Phantom 2 exclusiv feature?

    Thanks for you feedbacks!

    Cheers
