    The controllers and/or app for the P2 series and P3 series allow you to control the gimbal.
    You can't control left-right but you can control camera tilt.
    The DJI Inspire has 360º camera control.
    On the P2s and P3s the gimbal has a small amount of movement left-right to keep things smooth but you can't control left-right. You can control camera tilt.
