    Hi,
    This may have been asked before, apologies if it has.
    I have just found the time to upgrade the firmware to the latest 3.8
    I have a tilt lever, but it's not fitted as the pot screw didn't work before.
    Before I open up the controller does this now work if I fit the lever ?

    Hi Flying Fox,
    Well there is a very easy check you can do and that is to turn the trimmer pot inside the DJI controller with a small screwdriver before you open it up to fit the lever. A small cross-head or small flat blade screwdriver can turn the pitch pot as easily as the CE / FCC pot below it.

    I've recently fitted a pitch-tilt lever to mine and it is very useful. I couldn't find the proper DJI lever pack that you have so I had to settle for a Chinese one, which isn't as nice looking but does the job. My gimbal came from Marionville Models and was quite expensive, but seems to work well and was very easy to set up with their helpful video on you-tube.

    Hope this helps,

    Mark

    Cheers guys, it's working now, not quite right yet as the lower limit causes the gimble to jump ? I guess I need to adjust the limit settings ? The ones posted above I don't think are right for my gimble.

    All sorted now, changed the settings .cheers
