Well, this brings up a question that I have. A bit of background first...
I'm building a gimbal from AGL Hobbies that is based (from what I understand) on the cinestar gimbals. I'm using Hitec 7955's on the pitch axis(with an external pot) and on the roll axis (internal pot). Camera is a Nex5n with the Hoverfly gimbal board for gimbal control. Both the servos and the board are to be powered at 6v through a bec. Now for the question:
Should I consider removing the pots alltogether and using the board for servo position control? I've not seen that setup mentioned and was curious if there would be any advantage to it. Obviously it's being done somewhere as it appears to be an option in the gimbal board setup, I'm just unclear as to what the difference in operation would be.
Thanks' in advance for your info...
