    Hi All! I apologize in advance if this post is in the wrong place or the issue is covered somewhere already--

    I have a phantom 1.1.1 that I finally just put a Walkera G-2D metal gimbal onto, and managed to get it running pretty good so far and have calibrated the pitch lever in the Naza assistant etc.
    The issue is that the gimbal does not seem to want to point downward! When it gets to about halfway between horizontal and vertical (I suppose somewhere around 45 degrees) it shakes and shakes. As a workaround, I have adjusted the F2 settings to 250, to where it goes as far down as it wants to but before it starts shaking.
    But I'd like to be able to point straight downward if possible.

    I am wondering if this is a known issue, did I get a dud, do I have another setting to configure somewhere?

    Thanks a million.
