    I'm a newbie with my first Vision+. I've fitted the optional tilt control lever but I'm having a problem calibrating the X1 channel. The gimbal only moves a tiny amount when I move the lever but will move through 90 degrees when I turn the potentiometer with a screwdriver. I have to turn the screwdriver through 180 degrees to move the gimbal through its full range. I first thought that maybe the rod wasn't making sufficient contact with the potentiometer so I solved that by gluing the rod to the potentiometer but it didn't make any difference. I tried calibrating the X1 channel but the slider doesn't move when I work the lever.
    Any suggestions?
