Say folks brand new here and brand new to Drones. Just treated myself to Drone Worlds Phamtom 4 Falcon Edition for Christmas. Just opened it up and charging batteries but have not flown yet. A quick neophyte question. Is it normal for the Camera to be just hanging pointed straight down before powering up the Drone? I'm hoping it will wake up so to speak when it is fired up. Thanks in advance!

Normal when power is off. Bounces all over the place with no power

Thanks for the reply. I thought that was the case but just wanted to make sure some other damage may have occurred during shipping to cause the hanging.

There are three motors to control and keep camera's position at desired level. If there is no power to those motors in gimbal, camera will face down due to its own weight. It's normal.

That's normal but the way to make sure is to simply turn it on (with props off).
