    I have been trying to use my GoPro Hero 3 and mount it to the bottom. I can't take off because when I try, the Phantom pitches forward from the weight and the front props hit the ground. I am using the mount that came with the Phantom and just have the naked camera sitting in it. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Take off with a little more throttle and pull back a little on right stick when taking off. The GoPro doesn't weigh that much. You might also want to do an advanced IMU calibration then compass calibration.

    Got it. Thanks. I did an advanced IMU calibration and I just had to pull back a little on the right stick. I was pulling too hard at first. Thanks for your help.
