    I am trying to make 360 degree videos of an object like this:

    Have the home point near the object (a house, for instance)

    Move the FC40 out and up so that the house is in view of the camera

    Flip to switch to Home lock

    Send the FC40 left or right and it flies in a circle around the house.

    Adjust the yaw to keep the house centered in the camera's field of view.

    It is that last step that is causing a problem.

    I had previously reduced my yaw from 100% to 80%. I had a problem when ascending, the FC40 would rotate. Making this adjustment helped reduce this.

    So, I assumed that reducing that setting would slow down the rate of rotation. Yesterday I set it to 40%. My quad would rotate on it's own, when it was hovering and with both sticks centered. It didn't seem to slow the rate of rotation down.

    The quad didn't seem to be flying right, though. It was windy and the flight just seemed to be flakey.

    I set it up to 60% and it didn't seem to rotate on it's own so much.

    So DOES the yaw setting slow down the rotation or does it make the quad less able to control the yaw?

    As far as I know, the settings in NAZA only affect the autopilot. They don't have any effect on the sensitivity of the controller, if that's what you meant.
