    Am considering a gimbal for my Ph2, but don't quite understand the principles.

    Is the levelling signal taken from the Phantom's inertial unit, or does the Zenmuse employ it's own on-board accelerometer/gyros to assess an artificial horizon. If so - couldn't a gimbal derive the signals from the Phantom board?

    Is this the case for other 3rd party gimbals.

    Many thanks


    PS - what do I have to do to prevent myself repeatedly spelling gimbal as gimbol!
