    I flew my Phantom 2 into a tree while filming a house the other day....it landed upside down on its top and the battery flew out. Phantom flies fine, but my gimbal isnt working now....it acts like it cant find balance. I tried recalibrating, but that didnt solve the problem. I have included video - can anyone help me solve this problem????

    1. Put the camera bracket back on...that's critical for proper balance.

    2. Take the clear retaining pin out of the front left dampener (on the right in the video) so it doesn't impede movement. The rear ones are hanging too low too and doing the same thing. You might want to consider switching to using zip ties instead like a lot of us have done.

    If those don't fix it, let us know and we'll go from there :)

    p.s. neat camera wrap...something you printed from a template?

    Awesome, I will try those tips and see what happens. I appreciate the help!
    Thanks, I bought the wrap from www.decalgirl.com - custom wrap was only like $16, so I thought it was a cheap cool addition to the gopro!!!
