    Hello,

    I purchased this vision plus from hunch here from the classified section.

    When I 1st start the Vision+ and look at the app I see "gimbal motor error, check for obstruction".
    Soon as I move the gimball wheel the error is gone.
    When I take off it seems to fly ok with very slight wobble.
    I changed the props with some I previously checked for balance and no change.
    Please look at the video and let me know if you have any idea what could make this happen.

    hunch said it could have been messed up in shipping.
    Also one of the prop hubs was stripped and was difficult to attach and remove.
    That could not have happened during transit.

    Thanks for any help

    Let it hover next you and observe the gimbal.
    Video it and post it here.

    Do you have full satellite lock? Mine bounces around due to wind and won't give me smooth video until I have GPS lock with 9-11 satellites. I have a different problem with my video that I'll post in a separate thread.

    Yes I get usually 11 to 13 sats. I will try and fly again this afternoon and get in hover and record.
