    Hey everyone, noob here.

    Before I ask my question, yes, I did indeed search the boards before posting. After going through 13 pages manually, I searched 'camera' and 'camera problem', and it said they were too common of terms and wouldn't provide results. Should this tell me something? :lol:

    My Phantom Vision camera, once the entire system is booted up and connected to my iPhone 5S, will literally go up and down, up and down, as fast as possible, and won't stop. I've tried multiple scenarios, moving it around, inside/outside, controller on first, then second, etc. Nothing. Then the next day, everything is fine.

    Thanks for any insight.

    Have you updated all your firmware?

    Make sure to format your card IN your camera before updating camera firmware.

    But it sounds like your gimbal gains are too high. I don't recall if that can be adjusted in the Assistant software or not, but I suspect it is an adjustable parameter.

    It is indeed updated, and the card was formatted in the camera. The camera tilt gain is set at 20, everything else is factory.
