Were there instructions with it? Follow those to get the plate to sit where it needs to so it falls the right way and spins level, etc.

I know I had a helluvatime with a glide cam the first time I used it, but with patience you can get it.

Be careful though, the changing of the focal length on the zoom, and any weight changes, could throw it off. So make sure you have the camera rigged up where it needs to be for a shot.
