    hi all, just bought a third hand fc40 the guy I bought it off was not much help and I have a few questions
    first the camera holder seems to be installed wrong even though it looks right as per the instructions, as it was when bought it has a very limited tilt backwards so I just flipped it over and now I can tilt through more than 120 degrees and take a full overhead view, so was it installed wrong?
    next and far more complicated the guy who first owned it must have been a wiz kid the controller has 2 extra switches a simple flick switch next to s1 which I found out after linking to the pc is to slow the yaw rate to about 1/3rd. to take better video I guess
    next is a rotating switch next to s2 which is I guess a gimble controller although no sign of one being fitted
    so final question is how to use this switch to control a cheap gimble maybe one I could attach the fc40 camera to if one exists, the budget is not big guys.
