Hi, guys! I am not 100 % sure, what is the GDC align button used for and how is it used? Thanks!

This button aligns GDC attitude to the value you have input trough roll, pitch, yaw wheels.
That's all what it does. It's really simple :-)

GDC is usually just a backup for IMU so you can freely use it without worrying that you will disturb normal guidance.
