Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Hi Guys

Run the AIO Pro V1 with a new gimbal... I will attached the video link below.

As the subject line says i';m having a gimbal with the Jitters!!! what can this be down to??

The servo is a Savox 1258 which i was running in a nitro buggy it a £55.00 servo and was the dog bo**cks in the that its got a great spec.

It only single axle at the min as im awaiting another Savox servo.

Im only a newbie.. Any  :help: would be great  :notworthy:

Nice office lol.  Post some pics of how the linkage is fixed between gimbal and servo or is it direct drive?  If using a link between servo and gimbal then there should be no slop.  A coiled link between gimbal and servo can also help to add a little bit of dampening. 
You could add a small spring to add some extra resistance on the servo to take out that tiny bit of slop where the weight of the camera is knocking / swinging between the force of the servo in either direction.  Or in other words the gimbal is constantly being pulled into the servo by the spring.  A spring from a ball point pen could be enough if you work out how to attach it.  Maplins to a box set of different springs for about £2.99. 

Another thing could be to try a rubber spacer disk between gimbal and servo.  Depends how much space you have etc.

Hope that helps a little? 



Hi Gav

Thank you for the reply..

Pic below of how it is mounted to the servo...there is no slop its just the servo twitching??? very starnge.

I am going to try a elestic band to pull on the one arm... maybe work in the same way as the spring.

I am having to bodge the mount at the min till my other servo turn up.



can you change the output frequency for the gimbal servo on your controller?  maybe it is set higher than the servo can cope with?  try another servo?


Thanks again Gav

I';ll have to try and find that on my controller??  :blink :shrug:

I know have 2 very unattractive elastic bands bracing the gimbal one on each side... But a lot better result!!

Still not amazing but better!!  :-/
