    Hey everyone. Received my P4 two days ago. Still not airborn. I notticed that the camera on the gimbal is not balanced. The back of the camera is always down, the lense faces up. When powered on it seems ok. Should I be concerned? Is there any way I can balance the camera myself?

    Ps not a newbie. Skyjib X4 Zen15n. S800, QAV500, CX-4. 5 years crash free.

    I've had three and they all pointed somewhere else when off. Once turned on, then all is good and pointing ahead if the user setup was done on level ground. Their is a flexible black printed circuit ribbon that twists though the thing and is glued down at several spots so some pull could be there.

    Your's sounds normal if it points forward once on.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Good to know some sort of gimbal imbalance is widespread and not an issue.
