Hi Aaro,

I tried your suggestion and still get jumping around by 0,1- 0,3 on a stable surface. Not sure how others feel, but 0,5- 1,0 would seem to be all that is needed for F3X and most other aircraft fliers. Maybe helicopter fliers need high accuracy to adjust blades.

A potential solution might be to incorporate a screen option in the current app to give the option to select sensitivity (if possible)?

Is there a chance you can offer two versions of the app? The less sensitive version in 1mm increments and the 0,1mm version?
i dont think we wil go that way . if you dont need the 0.1 resolution just ignore anything behind the 1,-----.
Servos will always vibrate , the at wizard weighs nothing , it even pickup if you have a aircon above it.
we have less then 5% of customers wanting this.
it was originally designed for the Throws at 1mm.
we also sell the Agnle & Throw with display that has a professional MEMS gyro.
the f3D guys use that a lot.

I've been working on an angle device as well and having stable readings isn't easy to achieve. At least for me

My AT Wizard now jumps around 3,0 -4,0mm when measuring throws so something seems wrong. It was not doing this with the last version.

i dont think there is any problem with the app , then we added the 0,1 resolution.
will try a few today , but we havent had one complain yet.

Tragic case

Just had a chance to try mine out tonight with the new software. Seems to be working well although I am only doing rough movements just now.

Ok, maybe something is wrong with my unit then. I will try to post a video so you can see what I am describing.

Has an updated ANDROID version with increased accuracy of the AT Wizard app for been released? I have the android version of the AT Wizard and it works OK but with only 1 degree accuracy it is actually less accurate than the simple plywood measuring gauge I have.

at the high point up i felt sorry for the servo.
its maxed out , you cant measure that to much vibrations.

The servos weren't max'd out in the video. Guess I'll stick to my trusty mechanical gauge for now.

Welp...this thing is a pile of garbage....jumps from 70*-109.....tested with a carpenters square, not even close, or consistent the print quality is laughable and the case practically falls off

Purchased two, one worked, one did not.

Was promised a replacement but it was never sent.

Then they stopped replying to emails.

Back to old skool technology.
