    Is there a way to slow down the yaw rate of a phantom v 1.1.1?

    I would like more fine tuning control of yaw rate and I have no need to spin quickly. I would like a slow rate so when I move the stick to the limit yaw rate is still slow.

    The only way to slow it down is to purchase another transmitter controller (such as Futaba, etc) that allows for dual rates.

    Yep. I am modifying my controller tomorrow by following a guide posted on rcgroups. It involves installing a potentiometer to reduce the amount of power to the yaw control stick. This allows for fine control on pans. My parts all arrive tomorrow.

    Focus on just the pan modification, not the gimbal tilt mod.

    Futaba T8FG... has multiple profile programs allowing 100%. 75% 50% and 25% yaw rates...

    I did the mod today, came out great. I am going to post some video tomorrow that was taken with the slow yaw mod activated.

    true enough, but this mod lets a P2V+ on 5.8ghz control have slow yaw too. and ofcourse is a lot cheaper than a new tranny for those on 2.4 ghz
