    Hi, P3A here. I have to set the START and END ohase of the yaw movement more smooth, now it starts and stops too 'hard'. (hope to have described clearly)
    On which parameter is better to try settings?
    I have expo to 0.3, others ontouched ...

    Thanks
    Roby

    Exp=0.2
    Gain=80%
    End point=100%
    Enable Gimbal Pan Follow = not selected

    Also use missions

    I've set you parameters but the starting yaw movement is a little too 'sudden' ...
    What do you mean with 'use missions'?
    And what's the effect of End point?

    Many thanks

    Low expo value reduces sensitivity to stick movements around zero values

    Lower gains reduce responsiveness but increases settling time

    End point limits the yaw movement for full stick position

    Not sure your needs but you can try Gimbal to follow if that helps you

    Missions are preset routes through waypoints where your aircraft is expected to follow. These are very effective during photography as manual control gets replaced with auto. One of the good application that I hv tried is Litchi. There are couple more apps to do the same. I'm sure once you use them, you will never go for manual shooting unless there are obstructions on the way and you want to control manually. For good effects I run same mission with different cam angle settings and different forward / back movements and then combine them to get great results. You should also use external cam to capture your drone flying and add to your video.
