    a few questions to ask of you folks.
    1. I added a tarot 2D to my phantom. I do not have a gopro as of yet, but am using my fatshark pilot hd camera. I have it all properly balanced on the gimbal with a home made bracket.

    First problem I had was getting a tremor in the tilt motor. I changed the tilt motor power from 30 to 20 which seemed to cure that problem.

    Next problem is with the tilt from the stock controller. I cant get it to work properly. The gimbal will move a full 90 deg within the last quarter of tilt lever movement. I also get a tremor now when the camera is pointing full down. Can anyone tell me what the gimbal settings and phantom settings should be?

    2. I purchased a few of these http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... _Pack.html What is everyones views on running 10c? Will it cause a problem?

    My setup is phantom 1.1.1 with upgrade board and canbus port added. I have iosd mini, tarot 2d gimbal, fatshark transmitter and camera all running of this battery.

    On my first flight I got 14 mins before red light, and then another minute before autoland. I'd say with a bare phantom these would easily get 20 mins. They almost fit in the phantom except for the wires. Had to connect them outside.

    Cheers for any input,
