Horizontal / X-Axis Gimbal Base Orientation Setup
  • Hi,

    I want to perform the basic gimbal setup using the Basecam GUI but with the base of my gimbal mounted on a wall, so that the base is to the left hand side and not on top or bottom of the gimbal. I am having trouble with the auto PID tuning. I mechanically balance the gimbal in the horizontal orientation and the calibrate the Camera IMU and run the motor configuration. After this I try and Auto Tune the PID controller but I always get crazy movement from the motors eventually followed by the "Disk Error" which shuts down my GUI and says that the motor could be damaged if continued. So my question is, is there a specific way to setup the gimbal to have it work attached to a wall in a horizontal way using the GUI and it's functions? Thanks!
  • A picture would help.

    if it is mechanically badly out of balance it will not work.

    If it is in gimbal lock it will not work.
