My gimbal is not responding and in my Vision Asst. (3.8) I can't seem to figure out how to calibrate it.  Any help out there?

Yup, now click start on the right one.  Your Phantom is turned on with the props off, right?

PV2+ is on, rotors off. When the start for the sticks is activated the sliders turn red but do not move in response to moving sticks.

What do you have plugged into the computer,  the tx or the Phantom?
I think I am having memory loss,  the Phantom has to be plugged in to the computer, not the controller.

I have 2 phantom 2 vision plus and one of them has the v3 transmitter.  Been flying these for a year now.  When you turn the wheel, is the camera smooth going from horizontal to vertical?

You can also pan down slowly with just a little pressure on the wheel.

With the flint wheel only one speed no matter how much the wheel is turned, however, through the Vision App it moves slower but at only one speed and again slower when tilting upwards.
