    So i've had the H3-2D for about a month and all was well...... up until the a couple of days ago when it has decided to die.
    It's had no issues up until now and there is still power getting to the gopro. Its not had any bumps or any disturbance to it while it's been powered.
    Ive tried calibrating the tilt control, updating any firmware & using a different cable to connect the gimbal to the upgrade board, but still nothing! Dead! Any body having the same issues or know of something I could try to rectify this?

    Thanks

    There are a number of threads on this issue both in this forum and in rcforums. I experienced the same issue only after updating the firmware last week. I should say, I lost pitch control, roll control was still present. When you power up the phantom, does the gimbal keep the camera on a constant plane while you pitch and roll the aircraft?

    Try the solution in this thread and see if that helps. It solved my problem and I now have gimbal pitch control.

    That sucks. Hopefully, the dealer will send you a replacement soon.
