    Through fear of bringing up a repeated topic I am going to after not really finding an answer. Or there being so much info I find it hard to sort out the exact help.
    I am new to the forums and have found it a great source of information prior to joining.

    Anyway I installed a 5k ohm linear pot to my controller.
    I only get limited range with in the center of travel. Then it will keep driving to the outer settings (not stop) unless I turn the knob slightly in the other direction.
    I am happy setting up the outer settings and the pitch speed...set at 20.
    I have done firm ware upgrades, calibrated through both the PT2 and RC. I have also calibrated using the manual method on the controller.
    It also had the same issue when I tried the manual lever on the back directly to the pot.
    When I do the calibration it does not drive to the outside edges of the cal bar.
    I can sort of put up with the limited range but it not stopping is annoying unless I drive it the other direction a little.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Save yourself a load of grief and just buy the upgraded controller, I tried knobs and levers with my old TX and never had any luck getting it to stay on one position

    Thanks again.
    I will get a Phantom 4 or Mavic Pro one day so will save my money.
    The P2V has been a great training drone. I have done gimbals and replaced motors after I stuck long screws into it. Yeah the prop guard screws. Glad it wasnt a new drone.
