    I have a Walkera G-2D gimbal that just stays pointed up and is twitching. This is my first Phantom, and I am just 2 weeks into it, so forgive me if this is a simple issue that I am overlooking. Lol

    Does anyone have an idea what is going on? I can post a video in a few hours if needed.

    Wow... Thats all I got, wow! As I said before, please excuse the STUPID overlook! Haha! I had a landing that cracked the gimbal arm, and this is after I repaired it and was testing to make sure nothing else was wrong. Im glad it wasn't! Thank you so much for the response, which I am sure tops your list of easiest!

    Be sure to balance gimbal with camera in bracket with no power applied. I'm using the Gopro white and I had to add some weight to the side opposite side of gimbal motor. The gimbal should stay put just about at any angle when balanced. I used a steel nut. It should balance side to side and front to back so gimbal motors are not fighting it all the time.
