    My Phantom Vision 2 was faulty and I after coming back from DJI repair, the X1 channel doesn't show up on the DJI Phantom Assistant Software. It's the channel that you control the gimbal with the lever. The gimbal is working through the APP, but I'd like to have it through the controller.

    Have any of you seen this happen before? From my reading and research, seems that it might be a Phantom 2 Non-Vision firmware installed. Is that possible?

    I bought a Futaba T10J and have the VR Know binded to channel 5, and nothing happens. I'm quite lost here.

    With the newest firmware update, x1 no longer works on vision,
    But try to download the phantom 2 tool:


    Switch from phantom mode to HD-2d mode
    Then hook to PC assistant to calibrate x1

    Mine works when hooked to PC assistant, but when you unhook, it no longer works!

    May work on yours? Check which firmware you are running!

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, fly safe!
