    Hi

    I'm having a strange issue with my TX.

    I just got my FPV system and gimbal at Christmas so I can get rid of the static attachment for my Gopro but I cant get the TX to control the pitch angle.

    When I have my Phantom connected to my laptop via USB I can see the X1 channel move when the potentiometer is turned but this doesn't transfer to the gimbal. I can however move the gimbal with the Naza software by changing the center point.

    The 2 don't seam to communicate with each other. Is there anything I have to do to link the 2 together?

    The gimbal is this one: http://www.hobbyking.co.uk/hobbykin...ble_for_Nova_Phantom_QR_X350_and_others_.html

    I have the cable attached to the F2 port on the Naza and to the pitch port on the Control board on the gimbal.

    When I have my laptop connected to the Phantom and it all switched on, I can see the X1 channel moved as intended when I turn the pot on the back on my TX with a screwdriver but the gimbal sits there like nothing is happening.

    however, when i go into the Naza assistant gimbal controls, when i move the center point, the gimbal pitches forward or backward as you would expect.

    I'm using the stock TX from the Phantom FC40 model and nothing else about the phantom has been changed(i have attached my fat shark stuff)

    The gimbal controls are enabled in the assistant and the X1 channel is calibrated.

    It just seams like that X1 channel and the F2 port arn't talking to each other.

    Here is a video of the issue, its not great but you can see whats happening. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6a3fo3j1e0zxe ... e.mp4?dl=0

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thanks
