    I just received my Inspire today and was trying to confirm that the roll on the gimbal can be locked as this video from Octofilms seems to indicate: ..

    If I set the gimbal mode to FPV, the horizon stays straight when I roll the aircraft. This is with me holding the unit in my hands while in P-OPTI mode. Motors are obviously off. Don't know if this has anything to do with it. As I'm writing this, I'm wondering if it's tied to the landing gear being up; mine is down in this attempt.

    Has anyone been able to roll the camera along with the aircraft while flying?

    Thanks.

    As soon as you referenced octotrash, I stopped reading. They will give you false info.

    Don't know about all that but I don't like the fpv pixelization right next to the bird. Seen that before too.
