    OK guys.... Need input.

    Has anyone figured out how to adjust (reset) the null points of the P2V+ gimbal ? (for 90 degree, y axis) After a hard landing (VRS) upside down, The camera now sits at about 30 degrees to the right. It still tracks, and the X axis still goes full up and down, just that all my videos and pictures are tilled.
    Has anyone opened up the gimbal/camera assy to find a pot, or sensor adjustment ?? Can it be done software wise ?
    I'm a retired electronic tech (PC's, mainframe and medical equipt)
    If there is no answer to this, other than replacing the complete gimbal/camera assy, would anyone who has a smashed up one care to sent it to me so I can maybe find an answer. (send pm)
    Thanks much for any help...
    Regina

    Sounds like you have rotated the axis pin in the body. take the three screws out of the back cover & have a look. When the camera is level, the flat on the top of the shaft should be too. If it isn't, you can rotate it in the front part of the housing and epoxy or loctite it back in place. - the pcb assembly is only sitting in place without the back cover clamping it down.
