    Did you do an Advanced IMU Calibration and the Compass Dance since the gimbal mod?
    You may find the link in my signature of some help.

    Didn't do an advanced IMU. What does that do?

    The advanced IMU calibration fixes the little brain in your machine.

    You need to pull up the manual and do some reading to accomplish the task.

    It tells me my mc is too warm. I've only just turned it on.

    Ignore the too warm warning.
    It's a known issue.
    Make it do it.

    If you are running a camera with WiFi, turn off the WiFi.
    If that doesn't work, disconnect the power to the gimbal and try it again.

    Please offer more information about what your bird is doing.
    More info = better help.

    Make sure you're not trying to fly in Manual mode. A lot of people mistake manual mode for "Phantom went crazy" because they don't know how or lack any experience flying regular RC helicopters. If this is not your issue or you know you are not in Manual mode then.... Disregard.
