    Do you have a scale? I'd be very interested in knowing the weight in grams. Thanks.

    I am interested in knowing if you can still control the tilt from the iPhone App, this is now available on eBay and I sent them a question with regards to the iPhone app functionality and have not had a response.

    Tilt should be the same way as you tilt the original PV2 camera.
    If you use the 7th channel patch you will be able to use the "provided" lever that you will need to fix in the RC's bottom.

    Make sure it's connected to the F2 from the NAZA.
    If I remember correct only the TOP and BOTTOM wires (from F2) are needed!

    Don't you have to enable first the 7th channel on the vision? I was under the impression this was of by default.

    I think it only the top wire which is the signal which you need (now am not sure) will look it up but from all the youtube gimbals I have seen fitted they only use the top one
