"I was actually just thinking about the pitch, tilting the camera down to keep me in frame since Irisi+ will keep "looking" at you al the time"

"ahh I haven't tried that, but I doubt it would work since the FeiYu uses pan for the yaw axis. When you change the yaw pwm it would just keep turning in one direction, i.e. the yaw pwm doesn't correspond to the actual yaw of the camera"

"Hey Christian I fly one of these with full stability pan and tilt, and three modes. After wiring, mission planner setup, and transmitter setup, it should be fine. One of the other things to check is to make sure the inital orientation of the gimbal…"

"Hi Ian, Would these steps apply to a Spektrum DX8? Have you solved the issue with the auto missions? I am about to get a FeiYu gimbal. I don't see anything else in the market that would work better with Pixhawk. Thanks!"

"Were you able to figure out the ROI feature? I have complete control of the gimbal when flying manual but in a auto mission the ROI feature does not tilt the camera. Its mounted in a Iris+"

"Ian,  I'm a bit baffled as far as why your TX won't control it through the pixhawk.  You state that you could control it on the bench wired directly to the receiver.  It looks like you have it configured right in mission…"

"Nope not really. I still have not got any control from the TX nor does setting a ROI from MP make any difference to the camera. This is exactly where i was when I jumped in!"
