    I am at the final stage of setting up the 2-axis Radian on my Cinestar 6. I am using one controller for both flying and controlling the tilt of the camera.

    The Radian system is working well and I have a servo lead from the MK FC to the tilt radian.

    When I was using the 2-axis gimbal before without the radian I could use the subtrim and endpoint adjustments on my radio for the FLAP switch to fine tune the tilt. Now that system of adjustments with the radio does not work. I have gone into MK tools and setup the camera tab as suggested by SkyTakes PDF - very helpful but i'm not quite there! Anyone care to give me some insight?

    When I hit the switch on my radio that corresponds to the tilt it will move from level, past the straight down point by about 10 degrees. How can I adjust the "endpoints" so-to-speak?

    Thanks,

    Josh, 'endpoints' are set on the tilt with the Min Angle/Max Angle on the Radian Config Software. Also remember that if you move a control to start tilt, like a rotary switch, then it will continue in that direction until it gets to the limits unless you take the control back to the zero position.
