Still setting up a test mission before flying my I2 tomorrow. One of the Waypoint Actions is Gimbal Pitch Rotation. Please can someone explain how this differs from Gimbal Pitch Angle? I would have thought it would be the degrees left and right that the gimbal can be rotated, but the control dial doesn’t suggest this as it goes from 0 to -90.

Both are pitch, one is likely just relative to the aircraft position after corrections for movement and wind, and one is literal angle as seen by the gimbal without any IMU data

Thanks for that. I can’t really understand why they would have this particular action, when there are many more essential features to add. Why on earth can’t they provide a gimbal rotation setting? Is anyone from DJI there?

It's because they're basic functions problem within the gimbal that they needed for corrections etc, that they decided to just lump in the options because it's available in the SDK? I can't honestly say, and what I offered as a possibility could be completely wrong still but in my experience that's what it looks like.
You might want to look a little deeper at the manuals...sometimes your answers are easily ascertained and I was wrong

I have read the manual and the section about Gimbal Pitch Rotation makes no sense at all. It would be nice if someone from DJI can contribute...

It has to do with the action the gimbal performs between waypoints versus it being set at each waypoint as far as I can tell
