    New to the forum here... All help is appreciated.

    I am interested in changing the yaw (right 90°) so when flying between waypoints in Ground Station, the GoPro on the 3D gimbal will always be pointing 90° to the flight path. As far as I have researched, GS does not have this functionality. Thus, correct me if I am wrong, if I change the software IMU orientation of the Naza M, this will trick the copter to facing right while flying. OR any help on getting Yaw 90° between waypoints will be helpful.

    Thanks - CASHAAU

    Sounds complicated.

    This sounds dumb... but maybe try mounting the gopro 90 degrees sideways, I'm sure the dampeners line up, but you may need a longer cable for the H3-3D. You can always relocate the anti-interference board and purchase the "part 3" cables for $10.
    Try with the landing skids on. If it works and the landing skids is in the footage, remove the offending landing skid.
    Then grab a mate and help you launch and catch land with the remaining landing skid.

    It may not work because the yaw system talks to the IMU so the horizon may tilt a little.

    Welcome to the forum.
    What you describe is often requested, basically the ability to fly 'course lock' in MP, but we're still waiting.
