FC settings I put back to default, (from 120,120,0, 120, atti110,110 and then lowered then to 90% but that didn't change things. Gimball settings are 13 on both roll and pitch with 2 G105. Changing the servo tester gain doesn't change anything so it's on full. The ESCs ping all clear, props are tight...

I would start with recalibrating each ESC one by one. From there, be sure you don't have a similar power issue like I seemed to have had where you are overloading a bec (possible brown out condition?). I would take a look at the front left esc because it looks like it is consistently dipping in that corner first before the opposite motor compensates.

One thing you have to watch is the pitch angle of the gimbal towards the tail leg props.

I have some problems with the ecilop system.
I have spent hours trying to fix it perfectly, but I can't find the problem(s).

Are you sure your gyros are in rate mode?

My Y6 will be longer than that so no problem.

Yes. the blue light is normally off, but it starts blinking when I tilt or roll it, I don't know if this is how it should be?

Nice shots. If you don't have a second and third unit yet, now is the time to get it, because any unplanned "landing" in saltwater will ground you otherwise for a long time

Neither could I But that had no influence on the likelihood of such an event happening when flying over the Sea.

BTW, if you fly over really deep Sea where you don't want to dive to recover the rig (the mechanics and the SD card... everything electric will be toast anyway), this will help: google for waterbuoy

Each one will lift 1kg so adding three of them to the Ecilop will keep if floating slightly below water surface.

I know there was some doubts in the beginning of this thread about the naza being a good choice for the gimbal control. It seems from some of the video I've seen posted here now, that naza works well and the outputs are sufficient for use on this gimbal. Any thoughts on this? I recall Jelico going through some trial and error with the naza. I'm about to make my purchase and I'm wondering if the naza will get me the results I'm hoping to get.

There was an upgrade. Now Naza is working faster. But there is a problem with a linearization. It means that different gain must be used for 5 deg and for 30 deg. I’m using laser level to balance it in plus/minus 10 deg. position.
