deactivate roll autolevel

Hi, What is the easiest way to only deactivate ROLL autolevel. PID for ROLL & PITCH are separate, but the PID for LEVEL is for ROLL & PITCH toghether. What i want to obtain, is that only PITCH is returning to its 0-reference level not the ROLL, so basically gyro only PID for ROLL. Thanks, manu

Re: GUI-settable parameters “MULTIPLE_CONFIG_PROFILES"

Still have this question:
Are ALL Gui settable parameters settable in the 3 profiles? In other words, can I have 3 sets of all PIDS/rates/… etc.?
If yes, how to set them via the gui, what is the sequence to save the profiles.
This would be wonderful.

Via aux switch (inflight or if this is not possible unarm/arm), have different rates, and if possible PID too!

In original release 2.3, are only these values : int16_t accZero[3]; and int16_t magZero[3];affected by MULTIPLE_CONFIGURATION_PROFILES in readGlobalSet();?

I still don't get the "big advantage" of using MULTIPLE_CONFIGURATION_PROFILES .
