    I am trying to enable my X1 channel for gimbal control. I have hooked everything up to the controller but when I move my switch I can feel the pentameter turning but I do not get a response when hooked up to the assistant. Even if I do not have the wire hooked up to the correct pin it should show a reading in the assistant when moving the lever correct? What step am I missing?

    Which port in the Naza do you connect the tilt to? The top the bottom or the middle pin? I think that Is where my problem is at now...

    You are correct according to another helpful member. I am still trying to get my gimbal to respond. No luck yet... I am going to try again tomorrow. Sometimes I just have to step back and let myself take a break because I get a little frustrated.

    With everything on.
    Drone connected and nazam software open.
    On the info page of nazam.
    Do you see x1 value move as you turn the pot ?
