Small Lever Kit for the DJI Phantom Transmitter
This lever kit fits the stock DJI Phantom Transmitter, and includes the Steering Rod and 2 lever heads (the Wheel, the Scoop).
Please note that you need to provide your own screw, preferably 2mm x 12mm long.
DJI broke the news at this years NAB, that the stock white DJI Phantom Transmitter, has 7th channel, located on the back. This controls the X1 manual tilt/pitch control for your gimbal or camera mount. You can with this lever kit, control the tilt/pitch, and it works for brushless gimbals and servo controlled gimbals. Pick the lever head you fit your hands/grip or controls style the best.
Both lever heads are upgraded levers, designed to suit different grips on the transmitter, and personal preferences on how to best operate your tilt/pitch control. They also give you a full 360° rotation, rather than just 180° other levers offer, allowing you to position it just like you want it, and use the full (270°) range of the pot.
How to install it:
See the video on how to install it. You need to open the transmitter (very easy) with the four screws on the back. Slip the steering rod inside the top bottom hole (X1). Then you put on the desired lever head, and fix with a 2mm scrw (10-15 mm length). Gently fit the steering rod into the X1 pot, and rotete it to the end point in a counterc clockwise direction. Note which way the cross in center of the pot is angels, for when you mount the lever head, so it will have a position/range that works best for you. When attaching the back lid, postion the lever head in the same position you noted earlier, and scrw together. Note, the pot is made of soft plastic, and can easily be damaged. If you want to reposition your level head, remove the back lid first, then rotate the lever and reattach it. The design of the steering rod, ensures a snug fit when transmitter is screw back together, with downward pressure of the steering rod, so the pot will be safe.
Some drilling might be needed to fit the screw. I use a 2mm x 12mm scrw. also it can be wise to screw in the scrw on both rod & head individually before assembling, to tap out the holes, making it easier to assemble. Also, some use a drop of superglue to secure the lever head to the steering rod.
After installing the lever kit, please set the wanted adjustments in your gimbal software. There are several videos on YouTube expelling these setting for various gimbals
Servo Controlled Gimbals
After installing the lever assembly, you can set the gains for the X1 Manual, in the Naza Assistant. Default value is 100%. By lowering this value, the tilt movement is slower, and you get a smoother tilt feel.
