    Does anyone know how to get the gimbal pitch to stop when using a walkera gimbal and 5k linear pot tilt knob? It only seems to travel max/min when setting the servo travel limits. I think its an issue with the X1 calibration as the knob doesn't travel smoothly from min to max. It basically shows min to max with less than a 45deg clockwise turn of the knob. Seems this is a question many have on youtube mods that is left unanswered.

    Which gimbal?


    EDIT:
    What kind of gimbal do you have?

    Thanks for the welcome... Been reading on the forums for a few months and have gotten real far. Now it's time to contribute!

    It's a Walkera 3d gimbal with Hero4 Silver.

    Does this mean no one with an FC40/phantom1 and walkera gimbal can stop it at say a 45deg angle? I find that hard to believe

    There's a bunch more P1s, you may want to ask over there. But no duplicate postings... :rolleyes:

    I didn't find the answer in there, but it did lead me to a YouTube video that explained the issue and I got it working. Apparently you have to calibrate with the RC assistant software first, then it works. I'm very happy now.

    If I was smarter I would have known to share that with you. Glad you got it worked out.
    My signature has a link, and there are more pages at the site. Just a buncha stuff I figured would be helpful... for when I forget.

    Go man go, post video so we can be entertained.
