    just put together my phantom 2 and gimbal h3-2d.
    the pitch lever appears to work but it ONLY points the gimbal either level or face down, i cant control the in between..
    im trying to explain this as best i can, so when i slightly move the gimbal pitch lever it will quickly move the gopro to the face down position, once i move the lever back it quickly goes back to the level facing forward position.
    i thought maybe i cant control the exact angle but after looking at other videos i see the lever actually is supposed to controlt he angle not just facing forward or facing down..

    i checked my phantom 2 assistant software and the gimbal switch is on, and currently all settings are the default..

    anyone see this problem or is this new phantom 2 with h3-2d only able to face forward or down?!?!? im lost..

    i tried changing settings around but i dont see any change, and yes i hit the "enter" button to write the data to the phantom, i even powercycled the phantom and verified the changes took place but i dont see any difference in the gibal movement when i mess with the lever on the back of the transmitter still just moves either forward or facing down,

    please shed some light before i go insane haha
