    Hello... Newbie here.

    Just got my Phantom 1 for Christmas - with the Zenmuse H3 2D gimbal and a GoPro.

    I followed the instructions and think I have it installed correctly... but maybe not.

    Here is what I am seeing:

    When I power up the Phantom, the Zenmuse powers up too and does a self-powered tilt... but it points straight down.

    I want it to be pointing straight ahead.

    That's issue number one.

    Issue number two is when I send it up to fly, it sometimes self adjusts, but most of the time it does not... just flops around.

    Can someone please point me to a troubleshooting guide I can follow?

    Thanks

    Have you gone in with assistant software and turned on gimbal? You need to activate it internally in the software

    Gimbal setting in naza assistant must be off. It's only for 3rd party gimbals not the zenmuse

    I had the same problem-and found that I needed to turn on the Gimbal in the Naza-m software-problem solved.
