    I have a P3P which I would like to use for photographing some of the awesome thunderstorm buildups here in southwest Florida (from a safe distance). I know there is supposed to be a way to get the camera to pan up to 30 degrees above horizontal, but I can't seem to find that option in my menu. I haven't been able to find mention of how to do it in my DJI manual, or in previous forum posts. Can anyone tell me how to do it?

    When you do this, you tend to get nice pictures of the rotor blades - which is why DJI put in the limit. Hovering is usually OK. If that doesn't work, fly backwards.

    Thanks. I'll use that mostly for photos and the props are easier to deal with than with video.
