Did some testing today with punching in different camera angles in Flight Planner. Ran into a problem when I wanted to punch in a minus number. The key board on both my android devices had no way of getting minus sign to display. I used the work around of connecting to team viewer and using my computer to punch in the minus numbers that I needed. I now have Team Viewer installed on both my tablet and phone in case I need to make adjustments out in the field. Not sure if there is a better way to solve this keyboard problem but this way works for me. If you have a better idea let me know.
Here is a reference picture and corresponding numbers for the common angles.
Hope this helps someone.

After playing with this keyboard again in the house if you hit the key that has the .- on it twice fast you get the minus sign. Learn something every day. :)

Thanks for the diagrams. Keeping them relative to current angle is a short cut programming at it’s best. Instead of moving to absolute positions I know have to remember where I was last position. Much more intuitive would be to simply type in the final angle (+90 EG) and have it move to there. To go from down to up you’d have to type in -180. Not -90 that would be more sensical.
Or am I read this wrong?

I agree, absolute would be easier
