The POI mode feature is not available on our units. The support staff informed that the feature will be available after a firmware update. Seems like now is not a good time to buy this quadcopter. Incomplete or missing: user manual, config software for quadcopter and gimbal, POI mode, and even the product website!

I have requested for the latest firmware. I'll share it once I get it.

Ok .... I tried the gimbal software



Only IMU calibration available actually ... and it didn't cure my problem.
By mining the XML file, I understood this Minivet is a IDEAL FLY product at least in the software. references

Ok some fresh news ....

I should receive a new gimbal and also a new VTX (having better performances even if the current one is already good) & FPV screen (larger). These two novel elements should be included in the final version of the Minivet.

I should receive today a new gimbal as well as the VTX & FPV monitor. What I know, they did some improvement in the VTX part and I think the FPV monitor don't have any more blue screen. I will off course update #1,#2 with this new materials

Ok I received the new gimbal and it's working : )
The new version is version 1.01








The new FPV monitor don't have bluescreen too : )



They also changed the VTX module



Here the new one. Look like a Boscam TX5823 (or TX5826 ? coz it's assumed to be 400mW)



I can see also a caps probably to filter out interferences



versus the old one :
