    It flies well even in windy conditions today. However, I have 2 problems:

    1. When I turn/bank while flying, the horizon tilts like a gimbal isn't even attached. I removed all the foam packing wedges. Gimbal works fine when I'm just hovering. Any thoughts?

    2. I can't charge the battery after flying once. I only flew the battery to about 35% but when I plug in the battery, it blink green 3 times FAST on the lowest light and won't charge. Battery is very warm.

    Please help.

    1. Which mode is gimbal on? Follow or FPV. Follow keeps horizon level.
    2. You have to wait about 10-15 mins for it to cool down before it will charge.

    Guess I picked the wrong thread. Use thread tools and delete this one.

    These batteries get warmer than the p2 batteries. You have to let them cool before they will charge again. This is normal . After 20 minutes or so it will charge normal
