    Can someone tell me what the pot does underneath this hole? Is this the pot for transmitter output on the DJ6 controller? Has anyone figured out if you crank it all the way clockwise, what happens? If it's been answered already, kindly point me in the right direction... Thanks for the help!

    That is your transmitter gain pot. Turning it clockwise gives maximum output power(FCC mode), counterclockwise gives minimum(CE mode). Just be careful with it. Turn it gently with a small flathead screwdriver. When you use the word "crank" it kinda scared me.

    Although not absolutely necessary, it is safer to open the TX up when turning that pot. You have much better visibility to it and less likely to over turn it.

    I don't believe it does anything on the P2 (2.4GHz) transmitter; the two modes only apply to the 5.8GHz Tx of the Vision/Vision+. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong :).
