    About 7 flights in and my Phantom has been flying great with no issues. I have had no crashes and i've always been hand catching it. I was hoping I'd never have to post here but apparently I do.

    My gimbal has started acting up where if I pitch the Phantom left or right, the gimbal does not respond and the camera moves as if it were fixed to the Phantom. Forward and backward work just fine, the gimbal responds normally. Also to note, the gimbal works 100% if I am pitching the aircraft manually while holding it. Just not when it is flying. I did to an IMU calibration out of the box but I am letting the aircraft cool and I'll perform another calibation. I did perform a gimbal calibration but the problem remained.

    Any ideas? I am really hoping not to try out DJI's 6 week RMA!

    Set the gimbal to FOLLOW-- Not FPV in the setting and see if that fixes it. Sometimes those settings get changed for one reason or another.

    Thank you! That was it. Now I feel silly.
