Default goodluckbuy gimbal

Hey guys I just purchased a gimbal from the ebay seller goodluckbuy. The good news is it is not noisy the bad news is it doesnt seem to want to hold level. I plugged it in and all seemed well but it very slowly went out of level and just sat that way. I hit the reset button and held it where I wanted it and it slowly moves from that position to another. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it.

I just purchased a ebay gimbal from the same seller 2 weeks ago. You can manually run a pitch and roll calibration. Set something under the gimbal to make it stationary and level. (z/x axis) Power the gimbal up. Press the "reset" button once to calibrate the z axis. (this normally takes about 30 seconds but I usually let it sit for 2 minutes) Now when enough time has passed press the "reset" button 2 times. This will calibrate the x axis. That should be it. Remember to fully reset the gimbal to factory defaults press the "reset" button 3 times. You should also download the correct software and plug your gimbal into your PC. You can actually program the "resett" button to do many different things while you are in the field. Mine was vibrating a little and I had to run some calibrations and adjust some settings with the BGC gui software. What you need to do is ask the seller if the gimbal control board is 8 bit or 32 bit and what firmware has been flashed on the chip. Once the driver has been installed here https://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/...CPDrivers.aspx You will then go to the link here to download the correct software. http://www.basecamelectronics.com/downloads/

When the software window appears click "connect". You can run calibrations and set PWM and gains. When your preferred settings are done, click write. Then to verify they were written, click read. Nothing should change.
