It is well balanced, so I'm not sure why it is acting like this. Thanks for any advice.
first what I can guess is a disbalance. May be some friction (wires, gears, bearings). May be neutral position of the potentiometer is not set (potentiometer as a force sensor is not centered).

I had a minor crash with my Ecilop. I bent one motor shaft, so replaced that, checked everything, did a compass dance. Now when I hover it slowly rotates clockwise. Any ideas what I should check? Thanks

Found the problem: one of the boom arms is twisted. I have a spare so forget this.

if I want to use a second Taranis dedicated for camera control/shooting I need to install a second receiver on the ecilop?
In your video I have seen that you installed a second receiver on the first transmitter (and you enable the second transmitter with a switch), how does it work?
best regards

frsky x8r says a maximum of 10v but I am running 4 cell, power thru distribution board, then back to Naza M lite, then single connection from X2 port back to x8r, the JR connector to X8R smoked, and esc 45 also . . . any ideas why?

I am going to upgrade distribution board (had home made version washer and wired together), and replace turnigy 45 esc (one was used from a previous motor burn out)

10 v rating on the x8r doesn't make any sense either . . . because the single JR connection powers it and the Naza has to go to 4 cell esc . . .

gimbal tilt range movement

Hi there
I have limited gimbal range of movement of the tilt axis (+-10), using a lateral knob of a Taranis radio (setup max -100, +100).
In the Tarot ZYX-GS sw the angle limit of the tilt movement is +-74.
How is it possible to increase the tilt movement with the radio?
Thanks in advance
best regards

your question isn't clear for me.
There are three modes in ZYX-GS.
When ZYX is connected to PC is there 100% travel of an input from remote?
