    Possibly the most boring AP video on Youtube but an early test upon connecting and enabling pitch control for my P1 and cheap gimbal.

    This was a “budget” project starting with Craigslist P1 about $300, factory refurb GoPro $120, $60 Amazon TX/RX/monitor FPV setup plus $40 eBay Gimbal. Roughly $400 not including Hero2 which I also use for other stuff.

    I haven’t figured out programming the Gimbal yet but eventually it would be nice if I could pitch up more than the current F2 control programming seems to allow?

    I can unhook F2, restart the Gimbal and it’s more level to horizon as seen here in some fireworks around Mission Bay in San Diego.

    Looking forward to some coastal beach shots in near future.
