    You should set up the Gimbal with its own appropriate software. Is that a Tarot gimbal?

    If its like mine (walkera) I used the knob in the tilt kit rather than the lever so I could get full range on the tilt control.
    There should also be an adjustment on the gimbal as well on the circuit board.

    Check my settings page here for the Naza settings.

    Is there a mini USB connection on your gimbal control board? What are you using on the transmitter to engage tilt?

    This is the maxx angle using naza and the stock tx lever. I should only have to adjust the pitch in rc mode in BGC ?????

    I'm not sure how the setting is on ebay units, perhaps it is preset by whoever made it? Is there a mechanical setting to adjust? As far as I know the NAZA won't change the angle at which the pitch is, it will only calibrate it to the extremes that are set in to the gimbal. Meaning you can tell the NAZA how far to pitch within the specified range of the gimbal. For my Arris gimball, I had to set the angle limits in separate software.

    Well after some work in the BGC. I got it to pitch straight down. But to much
    movement while it that position and it causes the gimbal to roll side to side. My question is would This be a power issue with the roll. And I need to bump up the power? Cause it holds it's it pitch with no movement .

    First turn power on gimbal. On right hand front side of circuit board on gimbal there should be a tiny red switch. Push switch it will click and turn off power to gimbal. Then hold gimbal in position you want it to be in. While holding gimbal in position gimbal should center it's self in about 3 to 4 seconds when power resumes. Hope this helps.
