Yes sorry for my bad explaination.
I mean when Istarting the gimbal, the Z axis is never at 0 (in the axis of the Hexa) it's always at 5 to 10 to the right, so I'm not filming straight ahead. and I cannot fix it, I try recalibration but it's always awry.
Number of poles is good

ok, I understand now... have you tried to change the yaw offset at "follow mode" page? Does it have some effect on the yaw axis?

Go to follow mode tab and under yaw off set out in a negative value the gimbal will turn to the right if you looking behind the camera so out in as much as you want until it center. When you first power own try to help the gimbal as center with your hand and plug in then it will be center make sure you click write for it to save

Thank you !
The Askyvision's solution works fine.
It was in the follow mode tab > Follow YAW > Yaw offset modification and now it's perfect.
Good job !

I have told you the same Twice:
"You have to tweak the offset" value until it is right.."

and

"have you tried to change the yaw offset at "follow mode" page? Does it have some effect on the yaw axis?"

Just like a poster said EARLIER, this would need to work with an IR donlge so we can trigger pictures on the NEX5N, e.g. this dongle:

Anyway you can add a spare extension to the gimbale so people can attach there own little device?

yes you can use an IR controller for NEX but you loose the 360 yaw and tilt feature because of the wire

For those of you that have this gimbal, what's your opinion? Would you buy again, any regrets?

Hi there, I just purchased thiis gimbal. I am familiar with the alexmos board. Problem is with this gimbal, I already reduce the power but still the motors turning slowly, how can I stop the movement of this gimbal to stop it from pitching slowly, rolling and yaw.

What's Great about this gimbal:

1. It's assembled.
2. It uses nice parts.

What is bad about this gimbal:
It didn't seem configured correctly when I received it from a software standpoint.
They include a CD which is nice, but I don't have an optical drive
There is no guide out there on how to set one of these up exactly
I think there are generally a lot of headaches that are gimbal issues in general right now, I think as the SimbleBGC software improves and others enter the arena, and as people make tutorials on setup and balance things will get better.
