    Hello, had a crash in pure sweet water after hitting a branch.. One ESC died and was replaced...

    Now I have a slight horizontal misalignment in the gimbal, it does work for all the three axis, but if I look at the horizon line on the FPV I notice it is no more °flat° but descends from left to right a little..

    Even if I Place the copter on the table and I turn it on, I can see that the camera looks a little oblique versus the table surface..
    The arm of the gimbal does not seem to be bent, nor other mechanical parts seem to be damaged, only the motor finds its "resting point" in a uneven position, though it reacts and keep the camera stable as you move the phantom...

    it seems to be a calibration problem, but as far as i know there is no gimbal calibration for the 2V+..... what do you suggest? Thanks

    Try this thread. Has software solution for calibration and hardware fix if gimbal shaft has moved camera off center.
