    During startup, the gimbal will point the camera straight ahead and straight down (and do some of the other wiggles), but after completion, the camera is pointing (at best) at 45 degrees down-angle. Turning the thumbwheel won't take it close to pointing straight ahead. I've run this through the calibration stuff in the main P2 software, and I don't see anything else I can do - how do I adjust the gimbal so it gives me the full 90 degrees range of motion AND starts pointing straight ahead?

    P2 / HD-3D / GP4S

    Updated all firmware also

    Thanks!

    i also have the same problem.. viewtopic.php?f=19&t=32933
    the suggestion point to changing the gain on the gimbal to get it straight.. then calibrate the thumbwheel.. that is what i am going to try next.

    There is a page in the Assistant software where you can select the range of motion. I set mine to a similar range to the Vision+ camera.

    If you get stuck PM me and I will look up the exact page for you.
