    Hey guys,

    I bought a secondhand Phantom vision 2 Plus, however (and I knew this before buying). There are some issues with the gimbal.
    The camera still works, but if I take the protection guard off it does this:

    Not ideal, no idea how the fix this. If it is fixable at least..

    I tried this: How to fix a vibrating / shaking / crazy P2V+ camera gimbal
    that did fix it a bit, however; it's still not practical..
    Any ideas?

    Try recalibrating the gimbal

    You are on the right path..

    I tried this: How to fix a vibrating / shaking / crazy P2V+ camera gimbal

    But maybe your D shaft is upside down. Rotate it the other way and see how you go.
    Other things could be:
    Loose grub nut at top yaw motor (less likely)
    Damaged potentiometer (sensor position) in the tilt or roll motors.
