    Finally tried a set of Tarot black dampeners on my DYS smart 3 axis gimbal fitted to my Phantom 1. They are universally recommended for that setup but was still surprised at just how much better the footage looked with them fitted. For this test I have NOT balanced these new props- so further improvements should occur once they are balanced. No post stabilisation done to footage.

    Hello Bill. I bought the DYS Smart 3 axis gimbal but a week now I cannot setup it. As you know there is no any manual in package… First time when connected to the battery was dancing like a chicken. I tried to calibrate with the help of this video https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=777779472241112 When connected to my Ph1 need to set it by hand to see ahead. How connected to NAZA-M V2? The pitch does not work. What are the settings for this function? Please can you help me step by step how to make it work properly? You're my last hope before throw In the Trash .... :lol: Τhanks for all

    Hi,
    For my DYS once I connected it to the software I used a profile I got from this site http://www.flyingtech.co.uk/fpv-camera- ... ess-gimbal and download the flyingtech profile.

    Once installed I did a an accelerometer and gyro calibration after turning the motors off in the software. When you do these calibrations ensure the camera on the gimbal is facing straightahead and is level. So far I have not bothered with a 6 axis accelerometer calibration where you take off the IMU board from the gimbal. I did have a few occasions where the gimbal acted up and was either not facing straight ahead or was twitching like mad. But found if I closed down the software and started again eventually it sorted itself out. To get the pitch to work you connect two wires running from the naza controller in the craft This is the F2 port with the ground wire at the top and the control wire at the bottom. The other end of these wires go to the gimbal board where you connect to the rc_pitch wires. Top pin is control and the bottom pin is ground. The middle pin is not used.

    When you first power up the Phantom again make sure the camera is facing straight ahead. That way the yaw motor will keep the camera facing ahead once powered up. I hope this helps a bit!! If you need any more info let me know!

    cheers
