    Has anyone noticed in the app (iOS) when tilting the gimbal it goes all the way down on the indicator meter on the app screen but doesn't go all the way to the top? There is a red line at that point where it stops so I assume that is the limit of travel - although it seems odd for the indicator not to go all the way to the top?

    The physical gimbal itself has no issue it moves all the way from facing straight down up to horizon.

    Anyone else notice this?... as well as not being able to swap the rotational direction of the gimbal thumbwheel as you could with the P2V+ (slightly annoying for me)

    4 dots menu -> Gimbal section -> camera front/bottom : enable and you will be able to tilt upwards

    Sorry all that seems to do is cycle between pointing the gimbal straight down and straight ahead.. I've tried after each press of that button but the gimbal still won't go past the red line :-(

    Sorry, I was wrong :
    4 dots menu -> Gimbal section -> advanced settings : enable "Gimbal pitch limit (15° upwards)"
