Gimbal System – Q & A


Assembly

Check power is connected to gimbal, and also ensure power cable between PCU and gimbal is properly connected.

(1) Check for proper HDMI connection to camera, and all connections to HDMI converter are proper connected.
(2) Check if HDMI live output feature is enabled on camera.

Ensure camera is set to manual focus, and focus is set to infinity.

(1) Check for excessive vibration on airframe and eliminate the vibration source
(2) Use a different dampener. For lighter camera (such as Panasonic GH4) use 30° dampener; for heavier camera (such as Canon 5D) use 40° dampener.
(3) Gimbal support posts needs to be parallel, otherwise dampener position may be skewed.
(4) Check if gimbal motors are oscillating. Balanced of gimbal needs to be achieved, then the D gain and Power values decreased.

(1) Ensure gimbal CG is balanced correctly.
(2) Lower the oscillating motor’s D gain and Power values. Lighter cameras requires lower values.

(1) Ensure gimbal CG is balanced correctly.
(2) Lower the D gain and Power values on gimbal’s Roll axis.


Gimbal Setting

(1) Multicopter rudder gain is too low; increase the rudder gain in both Manual and Attitude modes.
(2) The D gain and Power value are too low for gimbal’s PAN axis. Increase these values.

(1) Ensure gimbal CG is balanced correctly.
(2) Lower the oscillating motor’s D gain and Power values. Lighter cameras requires lower values.

Adjust the gimbal heading of affecting axis, and increase the D gain and Power value for this specific axis.

(1) Ensure gimbal CG is balanced correctly.
(2) Lower the D gain and Power values on gimbal’s Roll axis.
