    We recently attempted to add a Storm FPV to our Phantom 1 setup, which already had an H3-2D. Though everything seems to be working well for the most part, we've been having some serious issues with getting the gimbal to balance with the AV out cord plugged in to the GoPro. I've tried taping a penny to the other side of the GoPro and even tried carefully taping one to the end of the gimbal itself, but to no avail. The gimbal works find without the AV cord plugged in, so it seems to be an issue directly related to this balance. Does anybody know how this might be fixed?

    There shouldn't be any AV cord connected to the GoPro when it's in the gimbal, it's not a matter of balance but rather the amount of resistance the cable puts on the gimbals free movement.

    Also, the gimbal itself feeds the video from the camera through the port on the back and on to the Phantom's motherboard. You should take the power and video feed for your video transmitter from there.
