    Zenmuse H3-2D / GPH3+ malfunction....

    failing after minor crash and recalibration ... position lever "down" on RC was camera down on gymbal (before crash), but now is inverted.... no intermediate positioning of camera (URG..) with lever... just UP and down....

    ... it feels something strange inside the RC lever (... dont know why, because the crash was in the copter NOT in the RC....)...

    make all calibrations as suggested in this forums (first RC and then with P2 assistant including X1 control)...

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

    I had an issue after a calibration the other day where my Gimbal switch would cause the camera to face down, slowly come up and then face down again as I moved the lever. Pretty strange. I just had to recalibrate it using the RC Assistant, even though it says you only need to calibrate the sticks in the RC Assistant. I'm not sure specifically what I did to fix it but I think i put the lever in the middle position then started the calibration.
