Installed the latest 1.3 firmware on my gimbal from GotHeliRC. It still has some issues but I'm getting there. Still can't get rid of the roll coupling that's happening when I manually tilt the gimbal no matter how careful I am with the advanced calibration. Video is available in 1080.

Now I'm trying to login again but the Viacopter web says:
"Login denied! Your account has either been blocked or you have not activated it yet."

Sorry but, Why is my account blocked? or, What have to do to activate it?
I have let pass other opportunities for buying the controller but this time, I think, have lost the chance (no more stock now) doing it correctly.

Best,
Jo
Hi Jo

I am sorry about the inconvenience. We had some problems with the VAT ID plugin that placed people in the wrong category. I have activated all new accounts manually. And I have a few controllers left for situations like this. Please write me an email with your account name, and I will set up an order for you.

Help needed please

Hi, I just purchased an Alexmos board and when I plug it into the 1.3 GUI and open com port the 12c error starts like a counting stopwatch and will not stop. Also the write button is shaded grey so I cannot write settings. The board is 1.3 firmware flashed although in the top left of GUI it says board version 0.0. I've checked in device manager the sililabs driver is connected to com port 5.

My first Alexmos board worked fine then I got a second board and was having the same problem that you describe. I tested it on a working system that my first board was on and it wouldn't work. I re-flashed the new board with version 1.3 and entered the settings used with my first board and it works fine.

Downloading version 1.3 and re-flashing was a real hassle until I downloaded the file to the "download folder" instead of "my documents" then all went well. The instructions work, just had problems with the file. Xloader worked for me.

Looks like a neat conversion, but do you have it fully operational yet?

- The reason I ask is that it looks like the roll and pitch axis are not aligned, so will be difficult to achieve neutral balance in all planes..

In other words, if pitch is balanced on it's axle, roll will not be, as there will be a pendulum effect. Will be interested to see if that makes a difference....
