    Hi All
    Been using a Chinese gimbal on my Phantom for a couple of days. Broadly speaking it's worked fine, but now I've found it doesn't move at all. Disconnected pitch control so it's only connected to + and - power and it doesn't move at all. The board is recognised when connected via USB but the motors arent' moving at all. it's the sort with a micro switch for manual tilt setting etc - I'm thinking it's dead and needs returning but before I do this wondered if anyone had any tips on what else to check or if there's any sort of manual reset I could try?

    Have you run the appropriate GUI software to verify any of its settings? Do you know which firmware it has? Have you tried to reflash it?
