    Just went out for our P2's second test flight. Noticed that when testing the range of motion of the gimbal tilt lever, everything seemed fine....EXCEPT, when the tilt lever was all the way over to the side where the tilt is 0 degrees (level with the horizon), the camera suddenly was "released" by the gimbal and limply dropped its tilt straight down. When I moved the tilt lever back very slightly, the camera "popped back up" and went back to 0 degrees level. All other tilt lever points, including the other extreme end of the lever's range of motion, were fine, no problems.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Try calibrating your X1(gimble control) via asst software.
