I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem.  When I go to adjust the roll axis I have to exert a good amount of force to move it.  Unlike all of the other parts/axes that move fairly smoothly and are easy to adjust, the roll axis feels like it is stuck and I can feel the metal grinding when it is adjusted.  I have made sure the locking lever is loose.  I'm thinking this is a QC issue?  Anyone else encoutner this?

Hi Straw, may I know if the Roll Axis have the same the issue when the camera is not mounted? Any chance to show us a short video so we can verify? Thank you.

Try to tip the gimbal back a little bit to relieve the weight on the roll axis adjustment by making the roll axis adjustment arm become parallel with the ground. It should get much easier to adjust this way.

I agree: if the bar is horizontal, the weight of the other arms will make it feel stuck. If you make it more vertical by rotating it, it will be much easier to slide.

Thanks everyone.  It was very difficult to adjust even before it was weighted, but after a handful of uses and sliding it back and forth, it seems to have loosened up enough to be workable.  Although it already shows wear on the black coating where it was grinding.

I had this same frustrating problem. I had to hold the underneath of my camera where it is mounted to the gimbal and lift it up slightly to remove the weight from the roll axis adjustment. Slides easily now, but really aggravating to figure it out.
