Because I couldn't find any solution to the problem I just tried to reconnect the power wire of only one ESC and suddenly the pitch and roll servos started working again.
Anyway, the roll servo put the gimbal all the way on one side while the pitch servo positioned the camera plate in a correct position horizontally.
I connected again other ESC's power wires to the FC, but the roll stabilization doesn't want to work at all, while the pitch stabilization works normally and I can control it manually from channel 7 of Tx.
Any suggestion about the roll stabilization problem?
Do you have a bec power your servos and only run the signal wire to the flight controller.
You must not connect the power wires from the esc!
