Well, with all these posts about the wonderful P3, I feel envious. However, I think we can still get nice videos from our P2V+. Check this out. I'll appreciate your comments so I can improve my skills.

I see that you also have about
1.5 deg lean left of level on the gimbal. My p2v÷3 has (had) this, as does my p3. I am beginning to think there is an assembly fault in the gimbals- ie the 0 position of the gimbal shaft is not correct
I have fixed this in the p3 with some simple electronics, and the difference is very noticeable. I haven't done anything to the p3 yet.
How many phantoms out there have this?

How do you notice it...want to learn to have a more critic eye. Is the solution simple...I am not afraid of electronics as I am actually an electronics engineer.

Ah, a kindred spirit. I just took the back off the gimbal & tacked 3 wires onto the feedback pot terminals [ I do hate the lead free solder - stupidest idea ever] & brought them through a slot filed in the bottom of the cover. 50k preset across the outside terminals, 470k from wiper to centre terminal of fb pot. It's only a tiny offset, but it makes all the difference. Just realize that it is almost entirely an integral term, and takes about 5 sec to settle in the final position. Mine is only about 3 deg from centre on the offset pot.
