    I was thinking last night, as I often do at night, about how I should dial back my yaw...I am NO pilot mind you, but I find with my limited experience flying ~150 flights with my P3P, I have no need to "spin" around that fast, and when I am looking left to right, or right to left "yawing?" I find I am just barely using the left stick to turn...and it still turns too fast (for me). So for folks who have their yaw control dialed back, I ask...to what degree or percentage would a conservative change make?

    thx

    I assume you mean the gain and Expo tuning? I have changed my rudder to 0.3, I have also lengthened my left stick for extra control.

    Yes. Stock Phantom settings are not really optimum for photography. They are a compromise between agility and picture taking. If you don't mind moving a tad slower, you can back off on rudder and aileron and get better images.
