    I've seen very few discussions about the consecuences about missing the third axis of the Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal mounted in a Phantom 1
    Before buying it I had been viewing a lot of good videos. None talking about lacking yaw compensation.
    Pitch and roll are very well compensated by the gimbal but I frequently get yaw oscillation I can smooth with warp stabilizer (after effects) not removed.
    I've read somewhere about increasing yaw gain. I don't see any difference.
    What do you suggest?
    Thank you

    Got it, thanks.
    Windy + ATTI w/o FPV is not a good combination

    Of course practice is needed.
    Do you mean a white head light (ebay $8)?
    I tried one once and it was useless to see the back of the quad.
    Moreover, the video had amorphous shadows in the middle of the frames, I guess because of reflection on the props.

    To help with yaw, you could extend the length of the stick. I read a post were straws were used.

    In ATTI mode I cannot film with the camera in a different position than quad moving direction.

    Sorry, I don't get it. Enlarging the stick would help to fine tune yaw but the gopro would still filming forwards in relation to the quad.
    I meant to filming to the right in relation to the quad (pan)
