    When I use the wheel to change the pitch of my gimbal, there is always a very brief and short travel initial movement of the pitch in the OPPOSITE direction of what I want it to move. After that brief opposite movement, it does then goes the correct direction.

    Has anyone experienced this? Is there a setting I could try and adjust that might help eliminate this?

    It looks bad on the final video because there is always this quick initial movement opposite the eventual tilt. Almost reminds me of someone who makes a wide turn in their car by first turning out and then in the direction of the turn.

    Thanks

    Try calibrating your remote controller (included the wheel) in the DJI GO app.

    I wanted to report back and say that calibration of the transmitter including the gimbal wheel fixed the problem. Thanks very very much. I hope this helps someone else who is just starting out with the Phantom 3 standard.
