    Hi,

    I have a tarot gimbal installed on my phantom using the 7th channel on the phantom tx to control the tilt. Currently a clockwise rotation of the 7th channel screw makes the gimbal tilt up and an anti clockwise rotation makes it tilt down. Is there any way to reverse this so am anti clockwise rotation makes it tilt down and vice versa?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Did you check the Gimbal tab of the Advance section of the Assistant?
    There you can reverse the direction of both F1 (Roll) F2 (Pitch).
    Otherwise, you may have to open the TX, and swap the 2 left/right wires at the POT of the 7th channel.

    You can reverse it in the NAZA, and perhaps in the Tarot GUI as well.
    (while you're at it, you'll probably want to set it to Stick Position mode, and update to v1.4 as well)

    def not necessary to open up the Tx!

    Which settings specifically do I need to change. I tried switching the tilt motor to reverse in the Gimbal software but it didnt work and the only settings on the gimbal tab on the Naza that says reverse are the gain controls which is set to 0.
