    Can anyone advise on a gimbal tilt fix? I've googled hard to no results but for replacing the gimbal. My ribbon cable is fine , there is no problem except that the gimbal is tilted and not horizontal. I've searched through the assistant software and not found a place for calibrating the gimbal?

    is there a section for gimbal calibration in the assistant software?

    Sorry no software fix. There is a post about 4 pages back called "camera tilt--solved" Has to do with the shaft that couples the tilt of the camera to the position sensor.
    If you don't mind my asking, did you have a hard landing or crash and did this start after ?? Seems to be a common problem with the gimbal.

    Glad I could point you in the right direction. Did you apply a a threadlocker to hold it in place?
