    1) What does the wheel do in the top right part of the controller? Haven't seen any clarity on what that does exactly.

    2) Is there a way to make a custom controller to tilt the gimbal if there's an uneven horizon?

    3) If one was to get the drone without a controller and eventually buy a controller - would it work with the drone? Just wondering if you HAVE to use the controller that came in the box with the drone or if you could purchase at a later date and pair up.

    Thanks!

    Per the Mavic manual, the camera settings dial can be turned to adjust camera settings such as ISO and shutter speed.

    No.

    Yes. You'd just need to pair the remote controller with your Mavic.

    How great would it be to assign gimbal tilt to the right wheel!

    It would be kind of foreign if you're used to flying DJI aircraft. They always put it on the left.

    I think he means horizon tilt - but I may be wrong.

    Does the controller log flights like the Mavic Pro does? Just wondering in case someone decides to sell their controller and just use their phone.

    No. Flight logs are only stored on the Mavic and your mobile device.

    Thanks. Weren't they supposed to release this without a controller too?

    Wondering if someone purchased without a controller how they would get one at a later date...

    DJI does not currently sell Mavics without a remote controller.

    We'll eventually see remote controllers available in the DJI store.

    Sorry, I meant horizon tilt. Would be pretty intuitive on the right.
