Possible to switch input channel with accessory?

Lets say i would temporary want to use the Yaw stick to control a gimbal servo by turning a switch on the RC Transmitter, would this be possible with Libre Pilot?

That would have to be done inside your RC transmitter and it would probably come back to neutral when you switch it off.

The transmitters that I imagine could do this would already have extra knobs.

- for a quad, you don't need a camera roll control, let your gimbal handle that to make it always level
- just use model yaw to pan it left-right so you really only need up-down
- (assuming this is for FPV) use one of your RC switches to control a video switcher and mount a small second camera in the direction you want (probably backwards or down)
- or mount your camera on a servo with the servo controlled by the switch.  at least you have two camera positions.
- for a quad, the one gimbal channel you need most is up-down, the quad is not rolled left-right nearly as much as it is pitched forward-backward (up-down) and model yaw works fine for left-right pan (yaw)
