Has anyone been able to get the Pixhawk to connect to a Feiyu G3 2 axis gimbal? We are having no success here:
-Frysky DB82 receiver
-Channel 6 assigned to tuning knob on transmitter
-Feiyu G3 gimbal control wire connected to AUX 1 out on Pixhawk
-Feiyu G3 gimbal power supply is separate
-Mission planner gimbal page set up channel 9 and channel 6 input
We get nothing, nada, no response to transmitter input. Tried many different combinations. Nothing. Gimbal just goes to extreme up position. With something as sophisticated as the Pixhawk there must be a way to do this simple thing. We just need manual control of the gimbal pitch while flying
No need with this wiring in file attached!
The point is that the Pixhawk needs to be up and running before power to the gimbal is applied as otherwise the firmware times out (now valid PWM signal) and locks the inputs. I wrote to Feiyu and the acknowledged that there is no workaround (or setting or modified firmware) to solve this. :-(
Sounds bad. I hope mine will last longer.
My first Gimbal was a dys 3 axis with alex mos on a 3DR X8. Never managed to get it to work properly.
The yaw axis sometimes worked, sometimes not (started to work once the circuit board was touched). It always started to shake like crazy when the quad went above 45 degree angles as long as all 3 axis are enabled. No change in settings could get rid of it. Once I disabled one of the 3 axis the shaking was gone. Ended up disabling yaw and using it as a 2 axis gimbal only.
Hope you have much better luck with yours.
