    Hi guys, I just got a Movi Pro, when the autotuning finish I have noise on the motors.
    I balance well several times and tried a lot of points on the balance but the noise its the same.
    Any advice ?

    You should go into the App and see which Axis is vibrating. You can see red meters in the Tuning section that will show you where the problems are. Either decrease the Stiffness on these Axes, or increase the Filter a little.

    If you're auto-tuning at 70% (the default level), then it'll probably give you some noise and vibration. I personally find 70% is too high, so I use 50%.

    Either way, you should always manually check and adjust the tuning after using Auto-Tune, especially Hold Strengths, Stiffness, and Filters depending on how much noise and vibration you're getting, and on which axis you're getting it.

    Rafael: In addition to what Graham says, you need to be sure that you're holding the MoVI Pro as you intend to use it when you do an Autotune.

    I’ve found the auto tune to be a bit disappointing, no better than previous versions of the gimbal other than giving you poor results quicker. You’ll get better results doing manually.
