    Just wondering I have the phantom vision and am looking at getting the rotopixel giumbal for it, am I going to have nothing but grief with it if I get it or is it working good with the newest software version?

    I have seen where some folks where having some issues with calibrating the compass but I had put the shielded compass on mine and had no issues till I crashed it . Nothing to do with gimbal though !! I don't think you can get one as good as the RPG !! JMHO ;)

    As above. The Vision with rpg might just be as good and stronger in a crash, than the Plus.

    Before I put my China gimbal on, I have always been able to calibrate the compass the first time, every time. Immediately after the install a few days ago, it sometimes took me three or four tries. I think I figured out what the problem is, thou. I made a home made gimbal stabilizer/guard and when I leave it in place during calibration, i get it done the first time again. Maybe just coincidence, maybe the flopping of the gimbal so close to the compass makes it go haywire... I'll have to do more experimenting this weekend.

    The only thing i am not sure about is if it is damaging during the few seconds that the gimbal is "arrested" and wants to move.
