    I moved the mount for my gimbal back so that it is under the center of gravity. I wonder if that is why the camera tilts when I rotate the quad.

    Here is video from it. The quad is stationary.

    Any ideas?

    Are the control cables attached to the correct terminals?

    Yes. It keeps the camera level when the quad tilts forward, backward and from side to side. It is only when it rotates that things go awry.

    Also, moving the lever on the transmitter moves the camera up and down.
