i currently switch from firmware 3.0.1 to 3.1.rc7. i am interested on auto-tune feature because my current settings do not perform good(smooth) loiter(rc3.0.1). my stabilised mode works very good and the copter interact perfect without wobbly, overshoot or oscillation effects. but in loiter mode i get small and fast oscillations(pitch & roll). especially if its a little bit windy day. this oscillations will affect my camera gimbal because the dampers can not compensate this radial(pitch, roll) oscillations with his more or less low frequency (i am thinking ~2 - 5hz). in stabilised mode the copter including gimbal fly very smooth.
can i performing the auto tune feature with a mounted gimbal? because the gimbal dampers. or it is better to perform auto tune without gimbal?
i am unsure because the gimbal is at least a important part and brings a lot of extra mass to the copter. especially here the gimbal is a big one which can carry more heavy cameras.
