    Hi
    My vision plus gimbal isn't responding. I've tried all the settings, power cycled several times. No response. I get live video to my iPhone. No crashes, no damage, nothing appears loose.

    Suggestions?

    Thx.

    Only 3 possibilities:
    1. power not on
    2. controller not on
    3. bad connections between controller and motors

    The power is on. I'm flying and can record video, albeit the camera hanging a bit crooked.
    So your 3 possibilities are not. But Thx.

    skulltronix - were you able to resolve your gimbal problem? I am running into the exact same issue.
    My camera works, but the gimbal is not responding at all.

    Thanks

    :D
    Sounds like it's app. related. Did you update to 3.10? If so, go back to 3.08.

    Only a stab...
    Check if you are getting an led light on the gimbal (led = power).
    Check the gimbal flex cable and make sure they aren't frayed or damaged.
    Check the 3 grey cables coming down from the phantom to the gimbal board. Unplug them and inspect and plug back in firmly.
