    Hi,

    I recently acquired a Gimbal, this one to be specific:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CNC-Black-Bru ... 7675.l2557

    I have a FC40 and have installed it, all good so far.

    However, when powered on it's default position is pointing up about 15 degrees from horizontal whereas I'd like it angled down slightly.

    I launch the Naza-M V2 assistant software (after connecting the battery to the gimbal and the USB to the FC40) and go into Advanced->Gimbal and have the Gimbal Switch set to 'On' and the Output Frequency set to 50hz (I'm not sure if this is right as I can't find anywhere online that gives me this info).

    Now to change the default angle I presumed I would change the 'Servo Travel Limit->Pitch->Center' variable to a negative number. After doing this I 'write' it by hitting return but the gimbal doesn't change do to me it looks like it's not talking to it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could be doing wrong here please?

    Many thanks,

    Matt
