The DJI Phantom transmitter is equipped with a (hidden) seventh channel add the back of your transmitter that you can use to control your pitch (X1) position of your camera gimbal.
With this simple Pitch Control lever you can easily adjust your pitch position while flying with your Phantom. The control lever is attached add the back of your phantom transmitter with thin double sided tape (I recommend 0,15mm double sided tape from Tesa or 3M).
Main product Features:
One piece design
Turn stoppers (against potentiometer stress and wear and tear when turning to far)

Package contents includes:
1 - 3D printed Pitch Control lever (In the color you ordered)
Not included but required:
Thin double sided tape (I recommend 0,15mm double sided tape from Tesa or 3M)
If you decide to go for the color white, than keep in mind that this color can become discolored over time (sun, dirt, touch etc.).
Because of the not constant 3d printing margins with this material it is possible that you have to remove some material from the axis / shaft with some fine grain sandpaper to make it fit.
By removing some material from the axis / shaft you can also determine the resistance of the lever, in other words how easy or not easy the lever can rotate to your own desired preference.
In some cases, the potentiometer in the transmitter is not well-soldered and is skewed or not straight installed in the middle of the transmitter shell X1 hole. In those cases the (X1) pitch control lever will not fit (properly). You can solve this by re-soldering / bend the potentiometer, this is at your own risk! Before purchasing this upgrade please check if the potentiometer is properly centered / aligned (with a flashlight) in de transmitter shell X1 hole.
