I have purchased 2 Gimbles. Both of them worked fine for a little bit, then started to tilt and point towards the left leg.

I tried balancing with weights, and rerouting the HDMI and power cables. No change. I internet chatted 3DR and they told me probably a motor failure, and they would have given me a new one with the first gimble, but I didn't have the original receipt. So I bought the 2nd, and now it too is doing the same.

I've tried rocking the drone back and forth in the air, and that seems to have worked to stabilize the gimble, but after awhile it tilts again.

Does anyone have the same issue, or know what's going on?

I'm about done with 3DR. I've dumped a lot of extra money, and I can tell you, this drone is not good or reliable enough for work. DJI Phantom 4 is looking pretty good about now. I may go list my solo setup on dronechest.com, I'll keep you posted if I do.

I just had the exact same issue pop up, probably due to a minor crash yesterday. I did the level calibration from the app and it fixed the problem.
