I recently had a similar issue after a minor crash. My gimbal would not pan down when I hit the trigger. However, when I went into a smart shot it would sometimes give me full control, and others it would let me pan down for a couple seconds and then move itself back up to 90 degrees. Unfortunately I never found a fix but b&h is offering to replace it for me. The only temporary fix for mine (not sure if it'll work for you) is jumping into a smartshot, angling the camera where you want it, and then quickly leaving the smartshot to fly mode so the gimbal is fixed in that angle. Obviously not an ideal fix, but the only advice I have.
