    I installed an ARRIS CM2000 gimbal on my Phantom and installed the SimpleBGC ver. 2.30 on my PC.

    The gimbal and software work fine. I also have the DJI NAZAM Assistant ver2.20 installed and it works fine too.

    The issue I’m having is the control lever and the pitch of the gimbal is out of synch. When I move the lever just a little, the gimbal moves much more. The movement of the gimbal won’t stop when I halt the movement of the lever; it moves on it’s own. I can’t get it level to do a gyro calibration using SimpleBGC.

    Did you calibrate it with the Assistant software?

    Yes, I went through the calibration process with the NAZAM Assistant, but the issue still exists.

    It turned out to be a simple fix:

    Using SimpleBGC, under RC Control, the Angle Mode for Pitch was not enabled.
