    Hi
    Im new when it comes to this. The 7th channel, can it be used to activate retractable landing skids if I add it to my P2+? Sometimes when I fly i can see the rails in the frame, if the rails/skids are up it wont be a problem....is this possible with out changing out the OEM Tx?

    I've seen a video where a guy did just what you are contemplating.
    I don't think it worked very well since the compass is mounted on the landing gear. You could move the compass, but it can't touch any metal and must not move around (defeat calibration).
    I've found if you fly smoothly and avoid sudden course changes your gear stays out of the frame. I also have a gimbal guard between the landing gear which I've never seen in the frame, and it provides some protection to the camera and gimbal. :D
