    Any idea what may be wrong! Barely a month old and never crashed I used it only three times and all was okay. I didn't used it a couple of weeks. Freshly charged battery! I am puzzled!

    RC has no control over the camera nor the gimbal.

    Should I worry?

    Thanks!

    I would calibrate the gimbal from the RC while on the ground. I also just watched a video where you can do a calibration of the gimbal while in the air (non-windy day) and even though it will tell you it failed, it can fix certain issues. Try that. Otherwise, send it back for repair or replacement. Try this link:
    Good luck.

    Check all the connections on the ribbon cable. There have been tons of this kind of problem with the gimbals on all models. Could be some little Chinese dude not plugging them in all the way.

    Thanks. I think that may also the problem, however I tried playing around with the cables and started Phantom upside down and restarted without the memory card. That helped to resolved the issue. I think memory card was the last option I tried and inserted in when Phantom on! Now started to smile again!

    Got me worried! I don't know if still I should give the a call!? Very new machine and had no fall or heavy landing or even a proper use yet!

    Thanks guys! Much appreciated for the suggestions!
