Can you manually adjust roll center?

    So... I brought my phantom down quickly and it didn't stop when I tried to go back up. It hit the pavement hard! Everything still works, including the gimbal, but something isn't quite right.

    The gimbal now leans a tiny bit to one side. Is there any way to manually adjust the roll center so I can get it level again? I've been looking online and can't find anything.

    Thanks!

    Give the gimbal mount a look and see if it is bent. The bottom mounting plate of the gimbal is easy to bend where the arms attach to the vibration dampers.

    There is no level adjustment for the gimbal.

    You're most welcome. If you need to replace the plate you should be able to find it for about $20 from a DJI vendor.

    I not understand. Why you bring Phantom down hard to not stop? It not made to withstand greatly hard crash. Gimbal break and Phantom break. Please no land fast.
