    I am really disappointed that we still can't have this simple function since we asked for it one year ago...

    Tom, what are you trying to do? I have roll control on my Movi controller. I can assign it to the zoom rocker or knobs.

    Can you control roll by joystick rate?

    Hi! Having switched to a MoviPro recently I'm also searching for this basic function now. Being able to chose a rate controlling remote channel for roll just like it's implemented for tilt is important for me. I thought I was looking in the wrong places but now that I found this thread I guess it's (still) just missing?

    Cheers,
    Clemens

    Hi I’m having trouble mapping channels from my Futaba 14SG to the MoviPro.

    I can get Futaba Ch6 Mode, and Ch2 and Ch3 for tilt and pan.

    But all the others I can’t find.

    I’m bound to a FRSky TFR8 SB Receiver which works fine with other applications and plugged into Com2 (also tried Com1).

    I can’t seem to find the pan and tilt rate clamps and ROLL and roll trim channels.

    From reading this thread it seems that having toll control on a roll hardware stick for a third party controller like Futaba doesn’t work????

    how do we do roll shots? How do we level the horizon after horizon drift issues on a drone?

    Does this Channel Map help? It's in the back of the Movi Pro Manual.

    No it doesn’t help.
    there’s actually no SBus -7 etc the channels go from 1-14 generally so I don’t know why they even list it like this.

    Also, What is Tilt rate “CLAMP”?

    I think these are the values you set in the Dual Op settings on the Movi in the app.

    Well I worked out I needed the Beta APP for a start. And I got all but the Roll working.

    So pan and tilt assigned to the left stick.
    Pan and tilt rate applied to the Left and Right Dial.
    Mode button applied to a 3 position switch.

    Roll trim applied to the Right Stick (My aileron). It moves in the app as Roll trim but does not Roll the Movi Pro

    images attached for reference.

    is the mode-switch in the correct position?
    You will be able to control Roll with absolute (Trim) values (stick behaves like a trimpot) but it's not possible to change roll control to a rate mode.
    Having control over the roll axis in the same way as the other axes from my understanding is only possible through the movi controller. I've never really found an explanation for this.

    Thanks Clemens
    Yes the mode switch is in the correct position and I do have control of pan and tilt.
    Our PlayStation controller and mimic have no issue with controlling the roll so I don’t see why Freefly is unable to implement such an essential feature. I’ve owned probably 30+ gimbals over the last few years for both land and drone and all simply and essentially have 3 basic axes of movements. I intended to mount this Movi pro on a drone but what if I want to straiten the horizon or do a Dutch Tilt?

    Yes, same here! - roll rate control seems so essential that i couldn't have imagined this would be missing with the movi when i got it.
    Maybe most owners use the movi- or playstation controller and therefore the demand was not big enough to implement it?

    The PlayStation controller is almost unusable for professional work as it’s so sensitive with sensitivity parameters in 20% increments. maybe it’s a way to force uses to buy a Movi controller.
