    hello
    I have the savox servo on the roll and tilt,and get´s alot off jitter from the roll servo:-((
    i have now lower the gain until 60 % on roll togther with my sony nex5 camera,
    i think the gain is very low,but still i have some little jittering from the servo
    so can you get the freefly servo free from jittering ? og shoud the gain just be so low to get rid off it?

    thanks

    I know Tabb recommends the FF servos, so for best performance i'd say go that route. What voltage and amps are you supplying your servos? if you're running 5v, try moving up to 6v as your MAX. Some servos jitter when there's not enough power supplying them.

    Kjetil, what mount are you using?

    Anyone know if the FF servos are a straight swap for the Savox on the PH AV130

    Hi Kjetil, yes the FF servos work much better with the Radian (and any stabilization for that matter) This servo was custom designed as a gimbal servo whereas the Savox was a standard servo modified for external pot.

    Dave, yes the FF servos should work in a AV130. The pot wiring might be reversed but that is a simple thing to change.

    Hi Tabb. I was wondering if they are the same physical size. I think you used the same ones as PH in your early gimbals so I guess they should be a straight swap.

    How do I get hold of some? Through Geoff at Quadcopters.co.uk?
