    Hey there guys,
    Yet, another Gimbal help. Did any of you face this issue with the Walkera 2-D Gimbal on a Phantom 1.1.1?
    This is my second Gimbal... I have tried the cheap Chinese one, no luck. It came with an issue and I sent all the way back to China...

    Now this one is giving me this weird problem. Check the video out... I apologize in advance about my English in case the Brazilian accent get on the way.

    Cheers from São Paulo!

    I notice your camera is mounted upside down...why? Did you balance camera and gimbal before applying power?.

    Hey Monte55, thanks for the quick response.
    I have it upside down so I can connect the fpv cable to the GoPro.
    I did not know I had to balance the Gimbal before connecting the power, so it has to be leveled even without power?

    Yes, it should be balanced side to side and front to back or it can stress the gimbal motors. I have the G2D also and gopro white and camera mounted upright. I still had to add a weight to the left side as you look at face of camera. There was a weight supplied with your gimbal that can be added or removed from the gimbal motor on the side also. Balance with no power.
