    Took some time to look at drone since crash a few weeks ago.

    #1 - Camera tilts hard left, I turn it right, goes back left fairly hard. My other P3S, the camera is balanced and stays pretty much where you put it.

    #2 - The arm was rubbing bottom of plate, I loosened Allen screw, worked arm down just bit, that seems to have fixed this issue.

    #3 - Does the circled part on camera arm look bent?

    My question is this going effect the gimbal motors, or operation of drone?

    My other P3S does too, but when I tilt it back right, it stays, this one drops hard left, like it is unbalanced or something.

    #3 It looks bent to me, but I'd think that it would be more evident to the naked eye vs. a photograph.

    Never crashed or anything...only thing i ever did was leave gimbal guard on for 5-6min when doing my first update ever. When everything is powered up its fine..works great. Does yours act up or do weird thing when up and running?
