    I recently got the 7th channel tilt knob/lever working on my V2+ and love how smooth it is BUT i can't seem to use it when i open the camera portion of the DJI app. everything works fine until i go to the camera function of the DJI app. The app seems to take over and i have to use the app to tilt the camera.

    Is there anyway to still use the tilt lever/knob while in the camera portion of the DJI app? I don't know how else to start/stop video.

    Thanks.

    side note: with the latest release of the Vision+ utility pro (version 3.8) i see that there is no longer the "tilt" tab. Just the flight logger and settings tab.

    No, you are just going to have to wait for the next firmware release.

    So i guess making the 7th channel available was for the vision 2 guys with gopro's? Do you know if they're planning on making it available for the V2+?

    There is a thread going about it on here for the V+ guys. But nothing official from DJI.

    But pretty good rumors about it :)
