    New DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse Gimbal, first week of flight. But I have not figured out how to control the gimbal camera angle. GoPro points mostly at the ground. how do I adjust it to point more forward and less down? HELP!

    Knob on the back of the controller should control it.

    If that doesn't work, check calibration via assistant software.

    Download the software by clicking here.

    Connect via USB.

    Turn controller and Phantom on.

    Connected.

    Connect the Phantom for that software.

    If you wanted to connect the controller, you're going to need this software.

    But I'm sure the Phantom software may fix your problem.

    Thanks for taking the time and sending me the software. I still haven't been able to activate that switch to control tilt. Once in the assistant what did I need to do?

    On the assistant software, did you go to Basic -> RC -> X1 Calibration -> Start? Then move the back knob all the way left/right then hit finish.

    You should have a red line centered on X1 when you're done.

    Maybe your controller needs an update? I don't think I've ever did that to mines, but check out that controller software link from earlier and connect the controller instead of Phantom (USB port is on the bottom of the controller).

    Perhaps do the RC assistant software calibration before the Phantom assistant calibration - check this thread - cured my gimbal tilt woes
