    Wasn't packaged that well and the gimbal guard wasn't on and I get it like this

    as you can see the one support thing is hanging, before I go messing it up, how do I fix this?

    thanks

    Just squeeze the bottom of the rubber ball and push it back into the hole.

    yea I figured that... Thanks.. weird thing, I had a crack on the bottom shell, my two arm stickers (blue) were taken off but the blue dji was still there on the top.

    I got a brand new gimbal, thats obvious ( i had the tilted horizon issue pretty bad )
    I will do all calibrations and check for firmware updates, I think the main computer is the same though.

    It sounds like they just replaced the bottom part of the shell.

    Try to relink your remote controller -- like this:

    Well, after cold IMU calibration, compass and gimbal, the horizon still wasn't centered, ready to send it right back to dji, I was able to adjust the gimbal roll-1.6 but unlike last time, it actually seems to stay centered no matter my flight or a bunch of turns.

    Time will tell though.
