    Interesting... The legs on my P2 tend to yaw into view when flying briskly -- the worst one is the leg with the can bus on it as that has a big connector to the iosd plugged in.. A big lump in the field of view!

    I compared mine with a friend -- he fitted the 2 retaining pegs that dji supply to stop the gimbal falling off. I didn't use those, but used ty wraps as I noticed the gimbal hits the dji retaining pegs... However -- when it hits the retaining peg the leg doesn't get the chance to yaw into view! I wonder if that's a design intent -- the peg limits yaw travel in one direction?

    Thoughts? What's your yaw experience...?

    I got leg in shot both with and without pegs on the H3-3D when pulling anything other than a fairly slow right yaw. I don't see it often now as I'm used to how much input I can give. If I want to do faster yaw effects then I position things so I can do a brisk left!

    Yeah -- just seem to get a lot more in peg free mode! I get it mostly when flying fast and it's fighting wind a bit... Not a big issue, it copes well really!

    What are you flying the 3D on?

    They told me it would happen. I said of course it wouldn't. They were right.

    **** this money-pit hobby.

    (I've also got a half-built F450 under stairs my son and I are putting together - don't tell anyone about that one! His soldering skills came in very handy when I was a bit "thirsty"... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPAatwOrOX8 I'm going to contract him out... but there might be a few legal issues as he's only 7)

    Yeah.. it does dent the wallet... I'm working -- slowly -- on an S800... It's big!!
    I saw your F450 vids -- missed the P2 though.

    We should start a thread on the relative merits of P2 and P2V! They are both good.. and very different...

    Re the contract worker -- as long as he's not the one being paid, what legal problem? :D
