    Hi all.
    I'm having a great time learning my P4 and testing video. I've looked through all the DJI Go options, searched the forums and searched the internet. For the life of me, I cannot find where to change the gimbal mode to FPV (I think that looks better in videos). Can someone tell me how to access it, and more importantly give me a screen shot? I'd really appreciate it!

    open dji go, open the settings (top right corner) then click on the camera icon towards the bottom and you will see gimbal mode is set to "Follow" if you click "Follow" you will be able to change it to "FPV"

    Thanks, but I don't see a battery icon. I see, from top to bottom:
    Quad symbol
    Dot with right parens (visual navigation settings)
    Remote control symbol
    HD symbol
    Battery-with-arrow symbol
    Three dots symbol (general settings)

    This is one of the reasons I was hoping someone would post a screen shot.

    By the way I have DJI Go app version 2.8.0 if it makes any difference.

    Perfect! Thanks a bunch for the great shots! One problem: that symbol is not on my version of that screen. It skips from Battery Status (battery plus arrow) to General Settings (three dots).

    Is that one of those things where I have to be powered up and connected? (I'm at work looking at my phone)

    For completeness' sake, here's what mine looks like. The camera icon is completely missing.

    For the benefit of all good future Searchers out there who have the same question. I found the answer. The camera icon in the DJI Go app will *only* appear when you are connected to the aircraft. I tested this several times. I don't know why they did it that way, but there you have it...

    I remote controller settings (next down from the quad icon) you can configure the buttons under the controller. You can have an FPV toggle there. Useful if you want the best of both.
