    I notice that although the specs say the camera angle is from +30 degrees to -90 degrees, my P3A will only adjust from 0 degrees (straight forward) to -90 degrees (straight down).

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Regards, Jim

    There is a setting in the app to enable the extra up angle, but be careful about your props being visible.

    Thanks! I was concerned because my bird is just back from a repair shop following a crash. I was afraid there was gimbal damage that had been overlooked.

    Regards, Jim

    You're welcome sir.
    I don't have my P3 with me right now, but look for something like Gimbal Pitch or Tilt Limit.
    TIP: Gimbal Pitch Limit 30 Degrees Moving Up (w/Screenshot)
