      How do I contact for possible warranty service? My Movi Cinema robot is not working properly. I can no longer balance my iPhone with the lens weights. It is acting like the weights are to heavy.

      Hey I was wondering if you could help me with my Movi Pro Set up, when I go to turn on the Movi Pro (with nothing on it) the gimbal will vibrate and shake uncontrollably. How am I supposed to balance it so that I can safely attach my camera to it?

      Andy - You’re based in PDX; me too. Just got the Movi CR. Would you or someone you know would be open to providing, say, 2 hours informal demo/lesson in the device? Of course, I’ll pay for this person’s time. I’m fairly tech savvy, but a videography newbie. My family are heading off to a big trip to Europe in 3 weeks, and I’d like to accelerate the learning curve. Let me know if there’s any interest in this.

      Andy could you help with with this issue. I have the USB programmer attached to the radians and I am able to communicate to the PC. However everytine I try to write a new setting to the radians, the system flips out and I lose everything and the pan starts to spin. But if I click the Pan-1buttom then hit write it goes back to normal. Am I missing something?

      Hi Andy. Reaching out to you because I don't know where to start. Have put in two trouble tickets with your support dept. but have not received a response. Looking for help connecting the Movi Controller to the Wedge (and a RedRock Torque motor).

      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 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
