Watch the tree we are standing under for parts of the video. 15mph easy. We were trying to stay behind the trees and low down on purpose trying to avoid as much wind as possible. And because your being a smart ass, here's the forecast history, we were flying betweem 4 and 5 pm: http://www.wunderground.com/history/...q_statename=NA

think its trying to put too much correction when outside interferance is occuring such as FFF

shaking is too high a Integral typically or too low a D depending on type. slow shaking is low D , fast shaking is high I. in general, you will have the best result with lower power and PID but high enough so correction is good. why it takes bit of work to tune in.

Thanks, I have assembled it, should work, but was unsure of a few screws.
And thanks for your e-mail respond as well

I just did a first test with 4s nex5n 16mm pancake. Tilt ok but jumps on roll. going to get some settings from Gary and use 3s, as I have a lot of 3s batteries around.

asmund, can you do a video of the issue and send me the link? not sure what you mean by jump. (jitter?) You should be able to run 4S. I did set it up with nex5n. I may have send extra screws but here is how iso is setup. you can use 4 or 6 points I think 4 works fine but if you want it stiffer, go 6.

Thanks. Yeah, it jitters,,or oscillates.
Right now I am testing the nex5n with 18-55mm, fpv camera and a nut to as counter weight. I figured I might as well use the 18-55 when instead of adding weight to compensate for the fpv camera.

tilt seams fine, but not roll.

Ag balance (0 min 50 sec)

I got it fixed by upgrading the firmware and entering the recommended settings. so now I need to test it in the air.
