Hi there,

can anybody of you who reads this – provide some settings for bigger cameras?

Got a shoot this tuesday/wednesday where the gimbal is planned to to 90% of the shots.

Would be really thankful!

Are there default values for the new version of the firmware,v2.42 b6, available? Since I installed it, the Newton doesn’t work perfectly!

Updated the board about 15 minutes ago – will be testing it this week. Will give feedback!

Let us know if the auto PIDS works well on it. I want to update as soon as I come back from Holliday’s

I wrote a mail to Guffe regarding new FW. Here’s his anwer:

Hi!
Here is my defaults, but before you load them:
 
 

1. connect to newton and check your Camera and Frame IMU irientation, write this down, IMPORTANT.
2. Load profile, dont click write!
3. Check so that Camera and Frame IMU orientation is the same as the ones you wrote down. if not change them to that.
4. Click write.
5. for P2 click the AUTO offset button in the Follow mode tab.
6. Click write.
 
You can now save your profiles and start edit them if you are not happy with the result.
 
One new “feature” that is not so good is that it will startup in the last used profile, so always go back to free mode before you power off. This will be changed in next FW update that will be released next week.

As it’s not possible to upload files in this forum, I copied the files in my cloud. The password is ”Newton”:

There are 2 different profiles, hadn’t explored the differences yet.

 
I tried the ”auto PID” feature, but without success. During calibration the gimbal had heavy vibrations and turned fiercly in any direction. After calibration the gimbal didn’t work well :-(

Hi Wolfgang and co. Im verry sorry for my almost non existing presens here, I will change that NOW!

1. Auto-tune work fine for pitch/tilt and roll, but for yaw its not there yet so this needs some manual tuning. This feature is a work in progress and the yaw problems is known to the FW designer at basecam. There is nothing wrong with vibrations during auto-tune, this is how it works (dimplyfied) it raises P until it vibrates and compens with D until it stops…

2. Default profiles will be posted as soon as I have tested them out and updated firmware is out. There will be 2 versions from now on, this is due to some board re-design over at flyduino that makes the SBGC boards I use, before the frame was mounted separate in the controller case and now its an integrated part of the board with different orientation. All controller cases without any lable about frame IMU orientation is v1.1. If labled its 1.2 (as the lanle say) Im realy sorry fir this change and hope you will have no problems due to this change.
