    I've searched this forum but came up empty for this. Thought it would be a common problem.

    I know many/most probably do not operate the camera tilt by tilting their screen, but I do sometimes find it convenient to film this way while I await the 7th channel firmware update allowing me to add a tilt lever underneath controller. I use an iPad2 on a controller mount for my monitor, which worked fine with my previous P2V+. But now with a different P2V+, using the same iPad2 in the same mount position and orientation causes the camera on the new P2V+ to tilt in the opposite direction. If I tilt the monitor downward, the camera tilts upward - and vice versa. Is there a setting anywhere in the assist software that controls this? I've send an email to DJI support asking the same question and they have requested that I provide them a video of the situation. Come on, Really???

    I know this is pretty stupid because all I have to do is flip the iPad, but (without getting into it) that means I will have to change something with my mount. Not a big deal, but I'm just curious if anything in the assistant software controls how the camera tilt reacts to the monitor tilt. Nothing was changed in the iPad.

    Thanks.
