"Hi John, I've gotten the log bin files off the iris and finally found them on the PC.

"Good morning John,
I got the copter flying on auto yesterday--flew a couple of "Missions" and all went well: the gimbal works as it should--except that I can't control the "tilt" (aiming the camera up or down) using a knob on the RC radio. There is…"

"John,
Thank you very much for the reply.
During the past two days I've spent a lot of hours with Mission Planner and the IRIS+, and I am slowly getting more comfortable with it (both the copter and the extensive abilities of MP. I am really a…"
