    If you switch to FPV mode for the gimbal, rather than the default Video mode, can you still use the camera tilt feature?

    And why, when selecting FPV mode on the app does the gimbal still move? Shouldn't be locked in place?

    Where on the Software Assistant is the switch to FPV mode? The manual says you can change modes in both the app and the software.

    Thank you!

    There is a software switch for FPV mode in the app under Settings. You can still use the tilt feature when in FPV mode. In FPV mode, the gimbal is not hard locked. There is still some slight smoothing stabilization taking place so your videos aren't totally jerky as they would be were the camera hard mounted.
