First flight test - a disaster!

Just flew the gimbal for the first time. For about 2 seconds. The Phantom 2 Vision flipped and destroyed 3 of 4 rotors. Gimbal survived.

Reason: Replaced central controller board - did not calibrate afterwards... Waiting for new rotors and rotorguards.

Upside: The gimbal design is even more sturdy than I had expected :-)
