    I'm yet to put my MoVI in the air due to the UK and Irish weather. Only had it in the hand. I'm wondering if there's a massive difference in HH and MR mode. If it works the way I want it too in HH mode can I just leave it be?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Sam I fly mine in HH mode simply because I only run single operator and primarily just want tilt. So HH Majestic most of the time.

    Here's the difference from the manual.

    Gimbal Application - Configures the gimbal for either Handheld or
    Airborne use. In Handheld use, the center position of the Dual
    Operator Mode Switch enables Pan Majestic operation. In Airborne
    use, the center position of the Dual Operator Mode Switch parks the

    Gimbal for takeoff and landing.

    The difference for me was in Airborne mode the middle position powers the gimbal and everything is 'locked'. In HH the same switch position locks everything but I still have tilt control.

    Hi Gary,

    I think I understand. It's more of a safety thing for take off and landing then? Everything is locked solid? I've read the manual but wasn't sure if I understood.

    I will be using in dual person mode in flight will this do the same job?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Put it in Airborne mode. Try taking off in the 'Kill/Off' switch position and once in the air switch to Majestic/Remote mode. I personally like landing in Majestic Mode so that the landing gear are stationary and not able to rotate on their own. Remember to 'fly' the copter power deck since the gimbal/landing gear no longer provide positive orientation.
