    Any guess what's wrong here? (other than the wicked jello)

    I just installed the new gimbal. I have not updated anything software-wise on the Phantom at all. I'm still running the original firmware on everything except for the iosd.

    The issue seems to manifest itself when I'm going forward.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Why would you spend the time to convert and post the video and then start this thread without at the very least updating the gimbal firmware?

    I had read that the gimbal would function fine without changing ANY firmware on the Naza.

    You have a problem with the gimbal.

    Doesn't it sound like a good idea to update the gimbal's firmware(not the NAZA FC) to see if that fixes the yaw issue you have?

    That sounded a lot like help, you sure you don't want to delete your post?

    It sure is great when a community of enthusiasts can come to together and help each other out.

    Why in the world would I want to delete my post? Both posts were helpful.

    Yes - Gimbal going into hibernation mode......then coming out....then going back into hibernation etc etc.

    My guess would be a bad instal of the gimbal (mechanically not electrically)
