So I tried that and it actually worked quite nicely.

Here is my first try. It is not perfect but good enough for the first try. My settings are in the description of the video. I think I should lower the roll gain from 40% to some 30% or so, because I think it circles too fast....

I wanted it because when I try to do an orbit manually, it is not very good, it is not smooth. I think with some more tweaking it could really mimic POI Orbit

Enjoy!
Great idea!
I use a switch with a preset yaw to slowly turn my quad for panoramic photos, but never thought of setting the mix that you did for the POI orbit.
Thanks for posting your idea!
