      Hi Andy, We are on a shoot in Jaisalmer, India with the Alta 8 + M15. The M15 is not holding pan or horizon as we accelerate the Alta.

        We are trying to finishing up an action sequence in Jaisalmer, India. Need to do a quick work around.

        We are having an issue with getting GPS lock as the Movi is not seeing more than 5-6 sometimes 7 satellites.

        Could the weak GPS signal result in less hold on the Pan Axis and drift in the horizon??

      Hi Andy. I joined hoping for the community's help in finding an accomplished Freefly system owner-operator-dp in Chile or nearby. Is it ok to post such a query on the Forum? Thanks.

      Hi Andy: Support sent me your way. All I'm trying to do is post a question in the forum. It's been awile since I've done it, but support tells me it is diferent from the past and left it at that. I dont see an option on the site to post anything other than a profile post. Do you know what the issue could be? Or guide me through the process?

      Hi Andy.

      I have downloaded the Freely Movi App to my iPhone and iPad and I cannot pair it.

      When I open the app a message pops up:

      "Device not found, please select device in Hifi settings."

      I have searched my Movi in the Wifi setting and the Bluetooth settings and it doest show up. I can make it work easily on my Mac computer but nothing on my iPhone and iPad.

      Would you be able to assist me?

        I experienced the same thing on my iPhone 6+ and have had no luck getting it to work. I can't seem to get it working on my laptop either. It's showing up in bluetooth as FFS-AAFE on my laptop but not connecting. Can someone please help! Thanks...

      Dear Andy,
      Recently, we got an inquiry from a customer who is one of the first group of M5 customers. His problem is about M5 update failure. We have gone through some discussions here and found "Jumper cable" might be able to help. Could you please help to send us some ? Appreciate your help and advice. Many many thanks! Shirley

      Andy, Are Ads removed after some period of time. I searched for my CS8 and Panasonic GH3 ads to update them and I can't find them in the forum (for sale). The GH3 sold but I wanted to spiff up the CS8 ad. Thanks, Mark Jaeger

      Watching your video, trying to update our firmware. The problem is that the UPDATE FIRMWARE/TERMINAL window doesn't have all the choices on the bottom of the screen that yours does. All it has is the "DEBUG" button. HELP!!

      Kde tells me I have to have the bigger bullet connectors

      Hey Andy,
      Is there any reason to use bullet connectors larger than 3.5 on ESCs or motor wires? I'm talking about heavy lift applications. U7 size motors and 70+ amp escs. I ask because everyone uses ec5 connectors and those have 3.5 bullets. The new KDE motors and ESCs have 4mm and up bullets but is that necessary. The power hungry board only has 3.5mm bullets.

      Hi Andy,
      I recently found your discussion 'how to calculate rate for long form shoot'. I understand that I am
      late to the discussion, but could I get an invitation to the forum you were discussing pricing? It
      would be great to get further informed on the pricing matter and take in thoughts expressed.
