    Hi,
    I've epoxied the gimbal shaft into the retaining hole. The gimbal is still tilted on start up! WTF! I did another recall and all was good. I shut down, restarted ... tilted again! I opened up the rear of the gimbal thinking the shaft has slipped again but it's as plumb straight as can be (horizontal with the top of the camera housing).

    What is going on please? It's driving me insane.

    All sorted. My D shaped gimbal shaft needed off setting from the horizon (which most are usual set to) to about 55 degrees. My gimbal is now perfectly aligned.
