    As it's from a third party gimbal, I'm guessing the 7th channel feature is connected directly from the naza to the DYS gimbal. It's different on the vision+ camera because it is connected to the Zenmuse port and wifi unit in the phantom body.

    By the way, what flight times are you getting with the added 3rd party gimbal weight?

    the 7ch tilt functionality in the vision+ exists but it is being blocked by either the gimbal controller once it sees the dji app has connected as the tilt function works perfectly until this occurs. I have been pouring through the dji app code (well, readable format code anyway) to see how or if it is configurable. I havent been able to find anything which leads me to believe it is being blocked by the gimbal controller board software.

    Very nice solution to a problem faced by many people. You should make a step by step video on exactly how it's done, or at least a how-to text file.

    As far as the gimbal warning, a good programmer can cut that check process out of the computer code. I'm no help, since I dropped out of computer school in '71, half way through the course!

    Is that an aftermarket landing gear? Too bad you couldn't get one with longer legs, since the camera is pretty close to the ground.

    im using the standard 7th channel solution for vision owners which works on vision plus.


    havent check the flight time yet, but difinitely lower due to heavier gimball compare with stock gimball.
