    It's here! Looks great. Of course it's raining...

    One thing I spotted during my indoor spin-up of the motors is that I can't pan the gimbal up past horizontal with the wheel. But if I pick up the P3 and tilt it forward then it does stay horizontal and starts pointing up relative to the gimbal plate.
    Is that normal? Are the 20 degrees up past horizontal only meant to be used when the copter is flying fast so with a big tilt and so keeping the camera forward for good fpv?

    Can't wait for this rain to clear...

    I think you can get the extra degrees by going into an advanced options section and enabling it.
