You don't connect it separately, if its a shared ground with the flight pack then all you need is the flight packs ground, if not then your servo connector has a ground in it, leave it alone and just pull the power pin. Safest bet is to just leave the ground on your servo connector.

I purchased the domain BLGwiki.com and moved the wiki to it, My pancake motor arrives today (I hope) so I will be doing a complete step by step with wireing and setup paramaters on the wiki sometime today.

Nice wiki, I would suggest you add the tarot brushless gimbal and controller, they are low cost and top quality.

It is their own firmware and GUI, not sure what it is based off or all their own. One of the better ones around though.

I am also having problems with my rc pitch control. My AlexMos (fed by a BEC with constant 12.8V via flight battery) and rctimer gimbal were working perfectly with perfect balancing and no jitters, vibrations etc.

I then connected the pitch input with my receiver via servo cable (incl. Red wire) and now I occasionally have jitters/vibrations on my gimbal depending on the gimbals angle.

Is it the red power cable leading to these disturbances? I played with the PIDs but I can't get rid of these jitters/vibrations. Have I damaged my board? Can't test right now without red cable since traveling and am now worried I might have damaged something...
