so if we want to use the HF Gimbal and HV servos just send only the signal wire from the Rx to the HF Gimbal.... that way no power is going from the HF G to the Rx....

simple enough.... actually come to think about it that is just an unregulated circut, the only HF could have done it differently is to put a 5v power regulator on the Rx side of the connectors

Bad Manual

Use a BEC to power the HFG--->Servos--->receiver. Its all the same connection.
How you will responsible to my two servo (savox) it damage from 4s battery.
I do not know about my Rx yet.

This is so bad.

If you believe that you have damaged servos or RX because you used greater than the recommended voltage as a result of the incorrect entry in the manual please PM me. I will take care of this on a case by case basis.

The Gimbal manual will be posted on our site in the morning. But for now here ya go.

Understand that it is the first version and we need to go through it carefully to check for errors.

Thanks for the manual. Can people with PH AV200 post screenshots of their settings roll and pitch,or including Max&min with +gain and scale factor( i find this the hardest to tune)
I am quite happy with my pitch settings is as follow:
Scaling factor: 83750
Min width:0.98753
Max width:2.08064
Gain:710.

I am struggling to tune my roll. Another issue is I cannot get pitch to do a full 90 degree in Angle Velocity mode. Angle Position works just fine. Any guideline would be nice.
Thanks

with the new user guide everything works fine now. i use a single stick with velocity angle on roll and tilt like a joystick. but the horizon is still drifting in less than one minute.
any idea ?

Anyone got a solution for drifting centers on both pitch and roll? This always happen during flight for me. Thanks

Gary found the board to be sensory to EMI from from cameras perhaps moving where the board is located could be a fix?

I have not seen center drifting.

I'll have mine tomorrow.

I found in flight that my av200 would loose its center in both roll and pitch if i induced yaw on my hexa. Im running it as a 2 axis controller. Any news on this... I haven't flown since i buried it in the dirt lol but rebuild is near completion
