@SquawkVFR ,the only way to change the direction would be to swap the wires over inside the RC which would involve taking it apart and identifying those wires

I'm with the OP - tend to move it the wrong way at least once each flight. Would be nice if the app had an option to configure the wheel direction.

Even better would be an option to interchange the two scroll wheels. Easy to do in firmware.

Having altitude, pan and tilt all on the same hand results in operations far more difficult than they need to be.

Ever find yourself inadvertently panning when you operated the gimbal tilt wheel? Avoiding this unwanted interaction requires precise hand control. Immobilizing all hand movement except the wheel is not easy, especially during an ascent or descent.

Moving gimbal tilt to the right hand would eliminate this needlessly complex and difficult operation.
