    Need some help with my H3-3D.

    I've had my first five flights be complete successes. But then today I plugged in to the Assistant today to update firmware and check out the settings, and it totally caused the gimbal to malfunction. Now every time I power up the Phantom, it the gimbal calibrates for a a couple of seconds, but then tweaks out, and reverts position up and to the left. I can hear the motor servo running, and I can feel the motors getting hot. I power down immediately so as to not cause any overheating.

    I've checked my connections, verified I'm running on the H3-3D IMU and 1.0 on the gimbal CMU. Everything else is up to date.

    I'd really appreciate any help here!
