Cheap gimbal problems - have I wired this completely wrong?

    Hi, I am pretty new to my quadcopter, literally about a weeks experience so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

    I bought a cheap gimbal for my hero 3+. I have watched about 6 - 7 million videos on how to wire it, most videos show similar wiring but I seem to have some weird problems.

    The gimbal, when only connected to power, vibrates at times, does this mean it's faulty? Sometimes it is absolutely fine, but usually only for a minute or 2.

    When I wire in the controls to it, it pushes full lock in which ever direction the wires are controlling.

    I've made a quick video to help me explain the issue...


    Thanks for looking, any help would be greatly appreciated

    Have you done the IMU Calibration?
