    I have a goodluckbuy gimbal for gopro3. I was gonna modify it to fit my P2V but decided against it cause of the cost involved in making the necessary part to make it fit the P2V.

    Its still in the box and I will ship it anywhere in the U.S. for free USPS Priority Mail. I purchased it with expedited shipping and I just want to make back what I paid for. $108.00

    Well as you know I received the gimbal today.Ive got it installed on phantom and i think I have everything hooked up correctly.It powers on and does what its supposed to do.Im pretty sure I have the wires for the pitch hooked up correctly but Im waiting for a pitch control lever http://www.ebay.com/itm/261366353657?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT I bought to come in the mail.
    Do I need to go into the naza software program and turn something on to activate the pitch control lever?
    thanks

    Well it looks like I just burnt up the gimbal.Must have had it hooked up to the naza wrong.I meant to double check before I got started tonight but got in a hurry and didnt.Plugged the battery in and after a few seconds I smelt something burning and immediately unplugged battery.Gimbal does not power on now.
    I guess the good news is it doesnt seem to have affected the phantom,took it out and flew it with no problems

    You can buy the controller for 16$. if the motors are ok just buy the controller, this is the same you have:

    It will take 5 days. If you send me your email address I will send you the default config file or the default profile. Most likely the board will come with no presets loaded so if I send you the file you don't need to tweak it at all it will be ready to fly

    You don't need to worry about the little one, that is the sensor for the gimbal arm, you got that one already and I assume it works so just pug the new board to the one you have already install in the go pro arm.

    I will email you the file and give you heads up.

    I received an email from them a few days ago saying est arrival date would be april 5,thats about what I was expecting.If you get your stuff in 5 days you must be a V.I.P. ! lol
