    First I would like to say Got my new P2v2 along with a zenmuse h33d and I love it. I have a couple questions, When I turn on the P2 my the Gimbal goes into calibration mode but the camera stays pointing down? :cool: I can bring it back up level by the pitch dial and it stays there but was wondering how to get it that way on start up?

    2nd How do you guys Calibrate your compass when you have the zenmuse? I mean you have to turn on the Quad to calibrate the compass, I just don't want to buck up my Gimbal with attitude 90deg pointing down.

    3rd I would rather not have any Yaw is there any way to adjust it out somehow so it stays center? Thanks for your help! ;)

    The camera pointing downward at approx 45 degrees seems to be the default. We all have to elevate it back to the position we want.
    Compass calibration doesn't bother the Zenmuse just do it slowly.
    The stick are what they are and you can't take the yaw out without modifications. Not recommended. The more you fly the more you will begging to use it.
