Calibration and Tuning

Balancing Procedure

  • Loosen both fasteners in the camera hotshoe as well as the ¼-20 fastener with the washer so the camera is free to slide forward/backward.

  • Hold the gimbal by its Pan/Roll arms and ensure the tilt motor can spin freely.

  • Shift camera forward/backward in its slot until the camera does not tip up or down when it is positioned horizontally and released.

  • To ensure the camera is very well balanced, test pointing the camera ~30 deg up/down; a well balanced camera will also not move in either of these two positions.

  • Once the camera balance is correct, tighten the ¼-20 fastener as well as the two fasteners on the hotshoe.

Ensure the lens cap is removed while balancing the payload!
