    Hi all wonder if someone might know my problem I'm having??
    I bought and fitted a pitch arm for my controller but it doesn't do anything I.e when I push it up and down my gimble doesn't move. Is there anything I can do or is it broken???
    Cheers

    Hi Scot.

    Been there - done that.

    What gimbal have you? I bought a Tarot £80 quid one from Bangood and it works okay. Mind you, I use a GoPro and not the FC40 camera.

    Are you in the UK?

    This is the gimbal I was using but I have not gone back to the stock camera, the gimbal was killing my battery and it was also going loopy so took it off

    When I meant loopy I meant that the gimbal when powered up and camera fitted will shudder level out then go forward backward and starts spinning on itself. Even calibrating the compass the gimbal started to turn on itself and the only way to sort it was to remove the power so it was pointless.
