    Hi, I have a phantom 2 with the H3-3D gimble on it. The question is why won't the camera sit straight out? It sits at a downward angle when powered up. Any Ideas??

    They all do that after a firmware update to the gimbal quite a long time ago now!

    So it's normal to point slightly downward?

    Yes!
    Originally the earlier firmware had the camera point straight ahead. Them a update caused it to point straight down. The last firmware issued had it pointing slightly down and with the arrival of the P3 series DJI lost interest in the Zenmuse gimba so no more firmware updatesl!! I just tilt the camera up after it has completed all the initial boot up bits and before I take off...
