    When I make calibration of X1 control (gymbal - zenmuse H3-2D) sometimes gopro doesn`'t go full upwards from down to up position (lever down to up in RC)...
    ... altough that upward position is not useful for filming ... is this a normal behavior ?? how can I know when the calibration is OK ?....
    How can I perform a test for a faulty gymbal ??

    regards

    Sounds like you need to set the travel limits?

    If you updated your Phantom's firmware, it sounds like you may have missed the RC firmware? If you go from the original 1.x firmware on the Phantom to 2.x or 3.x without updating and re-calibrating the RC then the X1 lever acts weird.

    If you haven't already, go get the RC Assistant sofware and update the RC's firmware. Then run calibrations in the RC assistant. Once it seems normal there, go back to the Phantom and Phantom Assistant and again do RC / X1 calibrations. I had to do the calibrations a few times before it was really smooth
