    Good day to all,

    Has anyone used the new controller with left dial, I just hate controlling the camera tilt with phone through the app. It just seems wrong to have to remove your thumb from the left stick to adjust the camera angle(safety first) all hands on the sticks! Locking the tilt through the app is also useless in my opinion.

    yes Derko I have just recently installed the new transmitter and it works great for the gimbal control. You can adjust the speed rotation of the camera as well. For $100.00 I think that it is a no brainer to do the upgrade....no batteries to change and nice location for the gimbal control, all updated firmware for the transmitter and the micro usb port at the bottom for charging and calibration.....makes sense to me

    Cheers Ranger003
    Is there any setup for the scroll wheel or does it just link to the camera?

    One other quick question. I am flying a PV2 non plus. The controller is compatible correct?

    Yes the controller is compatible. Just make sure that you get the 5.8 ghz transmitter. Pairing the transmitter is very simple as we'll.

    Being a new flyer can you please elaborate on the transmitter. Is it something other than the remote controller?
    Cheers

    They are the same. Sorry to use confusing lingo. The transmitter/remote controller are the same thing.

    Here is the link to bind. Simon Newton has loads of info that all fliers should be familiar with. Great information on his utube channel.

    DJI online it came out to $125.00 USD with shipping. Hopefully no duty into Canada.

    Cheers
