    New to the forum so apologies if this has been addressed. Crashed, everything still working except now camera is tilted to the left 10 or 15 degrees. Now everything I shoot is crooked. Any way to recalibrate the horizontal axis on the gimbal?

    Good luck! They have built the gimbal/camera to be a single module that can be replaced, but not modified. Just FYI, the replacment gimbal/camera for the P2V+ is $697. I did see a youtube video the other day where the guy was showing a replacement gimbal with a GoPro saying it would be available soon. My only suggestion would be to carefully unplug the three cables that are plugged into the gimbal base, and reattach them - Maybe you'll get lucky.

    Take the three screws off the back of the gimbal and loosen the board from the motor. Turn the shaft with a needle nose slightly and put back together. Power it up and if it is "better" keep tweaking if worse turn it the other way. Good luck...
