    Fixed the bird, new ribbon and put it back together. Gimbal looked good, went through calibration and took it up. Horizon started to tilt after a little bit. A jello effect seems to be going on too. No ND filter, I know that will help the jello sometimes. Do you guys think the problem is the shaft in the arm is loose and slightly turning sometimes. I've heard of people putting loctite on that shaft. Gimbal motor overload in air too. Brought it down, gimbal facing funny direction, calibrated gimbal, looks back to perfectly straight. Any thoughts?
