    My camera is cocked sideways when I turn it on. Any ideas on how to fix this or a good source to send it to get repaired. Its only a couple months old so I'm surprised it is acting up.

    When you go to turn it on or after you turn it on? Sorry, I wasn't clear on that.

    The axle on that gimble motor is a simple, and not-very-secure press fit. Relatively minor trauma to the camera can **** it to one side. It can be fixed relatively easily by pulling off the back cover, gently lifting the circuit board and twisting the axle back to the horizontal. Most guys will then add a little red loctite to the joint between gimbal arm and shaft. There are a number of Youtube videos on how to do it. I strongly recommend watching them before attempting it.
