    Howdy everyone. I have searched high and low and I cannot seem to find anyone describing the same behavior that my H3-3D with GoPro Hero 3 Black is now displaying. I can only describe it as perminant FPV mode. Basically every time I pan the quad with the left stick the gimbal will (for lack of a better word) "roll" with the pan. Whether the craft is in a hover, in motion, or even when it is powered on but the motors arent spinning, the gimbal fails to stay horizontally level. If my description isnt descriptive enough then imagine there is an invisible weight on a string attached to the bottom of the camera and it just swings the thing around in a turn. Anyways, I did all of the updates, calibrations, and hard resets that I care to do, all to no avail. Has anyone had this issue, and if so, is there a solution that I just cant think of or havent found yet? Thanks!
