    Hey all, I have a P2 with a H3-3D gimbal that is refusing to tilt at all. It is fully facing forward and otherwise functions well it just will not tilt. I have gone through calibrations on the Vision assistant 3.6 and can see that the transmitter is sending signals for X1 yet nothing. Any advice?

    Have you calibrated the transmitter as well as the quadcopter itself? This is an important first step.

    Calibrate the slider control (Even though it says you don't need to).

    Is that done through the Assistant 3.6 software?

    No, you need to download the R/C Assistant software as well.

    Thanks... Tried that calibration and that didn't fix it either.

    If that fails.. Uninstall both RC assist AND Phantom assist.
    Then:
    Get the latest phantom assist 3.6 and upgrade to latest H3-3D firmware .10.
    Then download RC 1.2 and calibrate your sticks and X1. Finalise and close.
    Then open up Phantom Assist and goto the RC tab and Select "upgrade mode" and Calibrate all sticks and X1 and finalise.
