    Am new here, First post. Please bare with me.

    Have been flying my phantom 2 with the H3-D3 setup since a month now. Few days ago I had a random flyaway. The phantom flew well till the last Battery bar and decided to randomly start spinning and drifting away from me eventually crashing on the grass field. The phantom survived with a few scratches and a broken prop. but the Gimbal mount was all bent as I ziptied all four dampers for extra security. Now that i put it all back together the gimbal acts all funny trying to balance itself. Even the tilt feature is off. here is a video of it. http://youtu.be/oNvVqlhOxtw . I have been hoping it can be salvaged but I have feeling Its wrecked. ANy advice and help. Yes i recalibrated my controller and the phantom but no luck. I even tried the Jump two dots for a hard reset, It did not work. :(

    You can try 2 things:
    A) Calibrate your tilt lever - Assistant software -> Basic -> RC -> calibrate X1 lever
    B) Try reloading gimbal software

    If those fail I'm sorry to say you'll need to contact selling dealer for a replacement or sent in for repair.

    Calibrated the Tilt Lever also. And Re-pushed the new firmware for the gimbal. No luck. :(
