Gimbals with Integrated Landing Skids

Here it is described how to configure and use the STorM32 controller for gimbals with integrated landing gear.

In these gimbals the landing skids are physically connected to the yaw arm, such that the yaw gimbal motor is between the landing skids and the copter. The landing gear thus rotates along with the camera, preventing the landing gear to get into the camera's view. This construction however presents a challenge to the gimbal controller since while still on ground the controller can't control the camera's yaw orientation and easily may get setup by that.

FPVC user buckker has demonstrated how this can be achieved. The main trick seems to be to set the "Yaw Pan Deadband" parameter to zero. Here two videos demonstrating this:
