    Help,

    My P3S's camera spins around upon power up & then the gimbal is nonresponsive thereafter but my bird still flies but no control over camera angle on RC, when gimbal calibration is initiated, nothing ever comes of it.

    Any ideas at a possible solution?

    Thank you, in advance, for your assistance.

    John

    It may be a bad sensor. Either pitch or roll. Try the roll first as it is easier. Where are you located?
