Anyone know if the servos are supposed to sound like this on the DJI retracts?

DJI retractable landing gear (1 min 14 sec)


Did I do the calibration wrong or am I good to go?

Cheers!

Sounds like you're pushing the servos past their limits, but it might be still OK. I don't know how is it designed to work

That is exactly what it sounds like... I hope it is "Normal"

Regarding my HDMI NTSC video issue

Contacted Robert @ UAV Products concerning my bad video problem and the knowledge I gained here on how to rectify it. He is sending out a new V.2 board so I can finally get rid of my separate (and such a hassle with that wrapping cord) FPV cam. Now I'll get to finally use the Zen on-board video the way it was designed to work.

Robert has always been very good in dealing with my problems/issues. He has responded to my emails very promptly and has sent things out very quickly. His service has been top notch. Thanks Robert, for all you do.

Yet again, this board has helped me enormously.
Thanks, once again, to all.

You got a solid green light, everything is okay. My RLG is same function as your.
Just test flight for my RLG on my youtube here.

Now the question I have for you is, why are you asking about FPV cam (which is plug and play) when you are using the video from the GH2 via the HDMI interface? You just want a secondary cam? My camera man is flying off a 7" monitor. It's too weird for him to by flying the camera via goggles. However, I might be flying off of goggles in the future. Also, I am flying the GH2.
Yeah 2nd camera, you can get further out and know your boundries when your actually on the craft and let the 2nd man get his shots and rotate camera.

It takes a little bit to get used to FPV, I'm practicing on a smaller cheaper craft at the moment until I get it down. I would rather spend $20-$100 on parts crashing my test craft than an S800

Thank you ZZR, that's what I wanted to know

Now I'm thinking I should have re-used the main carbon tubes/legs from the original landing gear on the retracts . A bit of a pain since I already installed the LED's and wires for the video transmitters on the new "legs"...
It looks like they are exactly the same size but I do not know why they used a different material on the retracts

Hi

The HDMI V2 for NEX series is not free, that's true, since it's a function upgrading not bug fix. Your distributor is right.

Thanks

Servo needs work 2-3 more seconds after leg reach the expected position, your retracts works very well, don't worry

Thanks for confirming that

By any chance do you know if I can use the old legs on the retracts? As in are they interchangeable? I'd rather be sure before destroying my wiring job...

Cheers,

Cedric

Welcome, I really like my new RLG because it perfect fit mounted from the power board of center frame than original LG. RLG is good quality and different sizes for width and height.

Here is where that is stated as well: http://wiki.dji-innovations.com/en/i...Using_Problems

9th line down:

How can Z15 5N/7 have video shooting function included?
Latest firmware should be upgraded and new HDMI board marked as V2 should be changed for Z15. (Chargable)
