Gimbal roll controller?

    I crashed about a month ago. I bent the gimbal arm and did my best to straighten it. The gimbal and camera still work although the camera is not level. This video (not mine) shows the same behavior that I'm seeing


    I've done an advanced IMU calibration and there was no change.

    My question is... Does anyone know where the "roll" controller actually sits? I'm about ready to purchase a replacement gimbal and camera but I'm a little worried that the controller may actually sit in the P2 rather than in the gimbal. I'd hate to drop $679 only to have a brand new tilted camera.

    Any thoughts?

    From what we've seen so far is that even a moderately hard landing can damage the IMU of the camera assembly. If the advanced calibration did not fix it then your camera assembly likely is skunked. Replacing the camera assembly on phantoms that have similar issues to you have fixed it, unfortunately at a rather high cost.
