Tarot 2D Gimbal won't level out

Hi all, my first post here, hopefully you can help me out with my brand new 3DR Iris, and Tarot 2D gimbal.

I power on the drone and gimbal, everything seems to work fine except the gimbal will not level the GoPro. It points it down at the same downwards, backwards angle each time.

The gimbal keeps it steady though, so if the level were better, it would be excellent.

Here is my video of what happens once I connect the battery.

I've thought about loosening the screw and just manually tightening it at the angle that would put it level, but I could imagine that giving me problems down the road. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

  • Thanks for the feedback.  Apparently the software has a hard time working with Windows 8.  I had to go to a Windows 7 machine to get the software to connect.

  • hi there

    try these first http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-optional-hardware/common-ca...

    and one thing I did find that when hooked in directly to the gimbal for firmware update and realignment that the gimbal is  aligned as its reference point with the gopro lens pointing straight up into the belly of the IRIS as per the provided on screen graphic(its not a mistake).

          hope this helps

  • Sorry not seen this.  But how do you have your gporo mounted.  I like that idea.  Can you post how you did that?  I hate the screws that mount the camera.
