    Need help. My phantom 3s camera and Gimbal both swing wildly about, as soon as I power the copter up. Tried Gimbal Auto calibration. No good.
    What else can I do, peeps?

    your problem is where the camera attached to the roll arm the Philips screw u must remove that and remove it off the shaft then rotate the shaft 180 degrees and screw it back in on the opposite hole. It's not in the right position. u have to undo the ribbon cable to get to it.

    I'm serious haha, if that's the correct fix and it works I'll be sure to keep it in mind next time a similar issue comes up. Just want to hear confirmation that it worked first.
