    So I upgraded from the 30pin to USB (DJI part 56) for a GoPro 4.
    Only problem is that now that I power on, the gimbal levels, then when it looks down I hear a horrid screeching sound, at least with the GoPro 4 installed.
    Any idea why? The gimbal seems to be functioning fine otherwise. I immediately turned the Phantom off.

    Ok, nevermind, freaked out for a minute there. I had a coin counterbalance on the silver motor part as someone recommended. DO NOT DO THAT.
    Removed it and Hero 3 works fine, Hero 4 is not sending video for some reason.

    Edit: sending video but "scanning" and B&W, whereas the 3+ output was fine.
    Ignore my ugly feet :lol:

    Another problem is that the added thickness of the ribbon makes it very hard to install/remove the camera.
    This sucks. I hope the Goodluckbuy adapter works, going to order it. The lifespan of the ribbon is compromised due the camera pressing against it.

    Make sure region settings match in the Black pearl and Gopro. If gopro=NTSC, change black pearl to match.

    Oops! Had it on NTSC. Thanks!
    Going to wait for the GP4 30pin adapter before doing any more testing anyways, I really don't like the ribbon.

    Forget the back connector, will not work on both at same time, only USB.
