    I'm a bit confused about these two...I understand the wheel speed adjustment is for smoother video, so the camera moves up and down more slowly, what what does adjusting the gimbal roll do?

    Fine tuning to manually get your horizon level.

    Correct, but I still have occasional issues with "horizon drift" during long yaw movements.

    So you'd do that adjustment while you're in the air...?

    Yes ... if you have a horizon issue you can put your drone up somewhere you get a good straight horizon and click on gimbal roll.
    It gives you a +/- adjustment to get things straight.
