Use the firmware upgrade software. It has the previous firmwares within it.

Looking at it now but:
Where do we download the v1.03 configuration Client ?

I only see on hoverflytech ..Config Client 1.7 for download.

I know that when I got the board it was loaded with older firmware code ( using 1.7 Config Client) would never connect.
I flashed to 1.7 firmware and 1.7 config client and it connects.

But same problem as describe here..

I don't see where to download the 1.03 config client .

anyone have a copy ?

Ok got it down loaded. Thanks Gary for walking me through it. Hopefully this version will stop the coupling.

So when I put version 1.3 back was I also supposed to downgrade the computer software as well?

I did not downgrade the computer software. It works with v1.03, v1.07 & all in between.

Hi guys, anyone can help me to confirm that Angle Velocity mode does not work in 1.03? I tried everything I could but failed to make it work in1.03. 1.6 and 1.7 works fine but with heavy jitter. Thanks!

43 pages in a single read for me too looking for an answer about why the tilt control in stick mode uses halve the stick range 1 to 1.5 ms instead 1 to 2 ms even when it reads right the output pulse.

I do not know what the difference is but it did eliminate the jitters I had on v1.07.

In the HF configurator, go to Config and calibration > Gimbal mode > calculation modes, and change both to mode 1 instead of mode 0.
Info in attached pic...
I'll have to go on a test flight when rain stops (again), but it looks good on the footage I just took "fake" flying the Lobster around the house

The above post is from here...

HoverflyGIMBAL 1.8 rev 0

Dan Burroughs
posted this on Dec 04 08:48 pm
Components Included:
HoverflyGIMBAL Firmware (version 1.8 rev0)
HoverflyGIMBAL Setup Client (version 1.8 rev0)

This version of the firmware corrects the roll drift (sometimes described as a yaw axis coupling) error that was present in the previous version of the firmware. It also has a couple features that allow the user to select behaviors that were present in earlier versions of the firmware. It is recommended to first try this version with default settings for the new featues (see below - mode 0 angle and mode 0 rate calculations).



New features:

Gimbal Angle Calculation Mode
The angle calculation is used to determine the orientation of the HoverflyGIMBAL. The calculation mode can be set on the Gimbal Mode configuration page in the setup client. The default value is ‘mode 0’.

Mode 0 is a more accurate calculation of the orientation of the HoverflyGIMBAL. It is particularly important to use mode 0 when attached to a gimbal with continuous rotation servos (a gimbal where the sensor is attached to the camera tray).

Mode 1 is designed to allow users to mimic the behavior of the system in earlier versions of the firmware. It is not our recommended mode, but a number of users have expressed a preference for this behavior.

Gimbal Rate Calculation Mode
The rate calculation is used in conjunction with the ‘rate gain’ factor on a servo. The calculation mode can be set on the Gimbal Mode configuration page in the setup client. The default value is ‘mode 0’.

Mode 0 is designed to eliminate axis coupling issues that can arise when the HoverflyGIMBAL is mounted far away from the center of rotation. However it may produce some jitteriness if there is a lot of vibration in the system.

Mode 1 produces a smoother value, which allows for higher rate gains. However if the HoverflyGIMBAL is mounted far away from the center of rotation, some coupling between axes may be seen while performing more extreme maneuvers.


Updated features:

Roll Horizon Stabilization / Vibration Dampening
Some users have been experiencing drift on the roll axis. This appears to have been due to vibration during flight. Additional filtering on the accelerometer data as well as the calculation of the rotational rate has been added to counter this effect.
