    I have this china gimbal with Martinez board, and had to move the gyrometer from the bottom, since I did a firmware update.
    To make a good job, I chose to use screws through the holes it already had. Then fastened it and everything seemed perfect, instead of the double sided tape it had before.
    Though suddenly I had problems with the gimbal completely shutting down not working, and sometimes it would roll abit to the side for no reason...

    Could this be because I used metal screws and it affects the gyrometer in some way? It doesn't hit any components. Now I glued it back on and seems to work again, though havnt testet much. But have anyone any knowledge about metal near a gyrometer? Or IMU or what do you call it?
