Is it possible to change the gimbal tilt direction on the controller finger roller?



I find that the default directions counter intuitive.  I want to pull the roller counterclockwise to pull the camera up, not the other way around.

glad I am not alone.  

1- It just feels natural to lower the camera with a push of a finger and pull up with a finger pull
2- I find it weird you can't change it.

I used to be the same. But you get used to it. Now it's second nature for me.

I agree,  its been suggested before but nothing came of it.  I keep threatening myself to put a label on it.

Just a total SWAG here as I haven't looked inside of the controller but I'd bet that the gimbal wheel is a three wire device. Swapping the directional wires on the switched potentiometer would have the effect you're looking for. If the gimbal wheel is hardwired to the controller board, it would take a bit of fine pencil soldering skill to achieve OR a couple of seconds to add in some quick connects to be able to go back and forth easily in the case your friend wanted the wheel in original configuration.

(SWAG = Scientific Wild A$$ed Guess)

At one point, i also thought of putting a label on it. Now when i want to pan the camera up or down, i just think of a push-up and it quickly reminds me how to properly operate the gimbal wheel.

You're not alone, for me is oposite direction more natural as well... to add option in to Fly app would be much appreciated.

Here is a link to someone who claims to have a solution. Scroll down a ways. I have no experience with it so take it with a grain of salt:
