1. Set Up Instruction: Remove your phone case if any, then BALANCE the gimbal with phone BEFORE powering on.
How to Balance: Slide the smartphone in as close as possible to against the tilt axis motor. Loosen the Roll (Y) Axis Thumb Screw (which is on the back) to adjust the gravity center by sliding the horizontal arm.
How to judge: When phone stays in level in power OFF status, it is balanced. If your gimbal woks well but FALLS in approx. one minutes or a red light at the bottom, it is Not balanced.
Counterweight is needed (search B07G56PZYQ on Amazon) if case or lens added on smartphone.
