Are there suggested tips on how to slow down the yaw and gimbal? I am trying to combine yaw+gimbal movements for better cinematic effects. To do this better, I would like to slow down the response of the controller.

I found this rather lengthy video below but you can just stop at 0 seconds and see the settings. Basically,

Yaw Expo=0.20
Yaw End Stop = 50

Gimbal Smoothtrack: between 20 and 30
Gimbal speed: between 20 and 30.

I found Yaw Expo and played around with it but decided on 0.1 which is the lowest setting. Also found the Gimbal speed and slowed it down as well. But I cannot find the other settings (Yaw End Stop and Gimbal Smoothtrack). I am using Android so I am not sure if the settings are different.

Anyone out there have played around with these settings?

Thanks!

OH,

This video is old.

Yaw End Stop is NOW "Yaw Movement Limit"  and you can find it under Advanced setting under ROTTER icon

Gimbal Smoothtrack is NOW "Gimbal Pitch Smoothness" and you can find it under GIMBAL icon


  if it helped...

Nice thanks for that, I was wondering which exactly matched up with the older video.

I actually do not see Yaw Movement Limit. I only see Yaw Endpoint.

I see it under: Rotor->Advanced Settings->Sensitivity
Also for the Gimbal settings, under the Advanced Settings section, I only see Gimbal Start/Stop Buffer and Gimbal Pitch EXP. So I don't see either Gimbal Speed or Gimbal Pitch Smoothness.

Are you using IOS? I am using Android.

Yes I am using IOS.

I guess they have different names under different OS but same functionalities.

LIMIT = ENDPOINT

SMOOTHNESS = PITCH EXP

Yaw Endpoint basically cuts off the travel of the yaw stick.  So for example, if you move the stick all the way in one direction (100%), it really only counts it as 30% if you set your Yaw Endpoint to 30%.  This setting is great combined with EXP settings because basically, you get to take the shallow (flat) portion of the EXP curve and "spread" it across the entire travel of your stick, and you'll never hit the steep end of the curve.

Here's an illustration of Yaw Endpoint applied to an EXP curve.  Applying this endpoint essentially stretches the curve between the two endpoints to the edges, eliminating the steep ends of the curve.  So you'll basically have very fine control of your aircraft over a very shallow curve.  End result: very smooth cinematic motion!

Very nicely illustrated. I am going to try this today! Thanks so much!

Very nice controls. Wondering why we don't have it with Spark but need to fiddle with Assistant to set it up.

You're looking at the wrong settings.

The Spark is targeted to less sophisticated users.  Settings like these could cause a lot of trouble when changed by novices who don't know what they're doing - and most certainly would result in a large up-tick in support calls to DJI . . .

I just tried this a few times last night and it worked. I misunderstood that the 30% setting would completely remove the exponential response at the end but it is still much better than the current default setting. Thanks again for this tutorial!

While we are at it, do you have any suggestions for gimbal dampening? I am trying to achieve the same response when I push the scroll button but at the same time when I release the gimbal scroll, I would like the gimbal to "gracefully" come to a stop. I have experimented with various settings but it doesn't always turn out as nice on bigger screens.

Glad than worked out for you.

The gimble has it's own settings, about 2-3 of them if I recall.  You need to set the right combination of settings to get the effect you want.  I recommend working with one setting at a time and going to the extremes on each setting to get a "feel" for the gimble response, and adjust accordingly.
