  1. How did you get camera off the shaft? did you have to pry on it hard with a screwdriver or something? Why didn’t you use Red permanent loctite?

  2. I did this but camera still does the same thing ribbon cable all look ok,but i did notice on ic chip next to poitentometer has a gray spot on it like maybe it fried?

    1. that chip isn’t fried. I crashed mine and the gimbal is doing the same crazy thing. The chip and that gray spot is something that I have on my circuitry as well. It was merely a grease mark used to identify one thing from another, during its assembly.

      Day 2 will begin tomorrow for me after I’ve just crashed it yesterday.

  3. Hello to All,
    today i have measured the trimmer value of three motors from my gimbal.
    Tilt motor — 3.2KOhm in 0 position (camera side)
    Roll motor — 3.2 KOhm in 0 position (horizontal)
    L motor — 1.4KOhm (bad value) no change in any rotation.
    I have found this trimmer by RS-ONLINE site http://it.rs-online.com/web/p/potenziometri/7703166P/
    I want to try to change it , because I think that during the fall to the floor of my drone to land the trimmer was broken togheter the arm L (out of inclination)

    1. Ciao Filippo,
      anche io ho problemi di stabilizzazione del gimbal e pensavo infatti che il problema può dipendere da un trimmer danneggiato.
      sono esperto di elettronica e ho tutto il necessario per la sostituzone, mi chiedevo se sei riuscito a risolvere sostituendo il trimmer.
