    I would first suggest contacting support@freeflysystems.com about it.

    I think I ran into something similar before, and I'm not sure of the exact cause, but I have two other suggestions that may or may not help:

    Take a look at your Hold Strength Settings, and see if they're too high. Or maybe motor stiffness?

    Also, take a look at your cage, and see if it's tweaked or not straight\true in the way the rods are aligned. Try loosening clamps, making sure the cage isn't bound up somehow, and see if that helps.

    Good luck!

    Hi Graham thanks for your response I check the cage and it moves quite smooth and freely when power is off
    my Settings strength are at 8,8,8, with a DSLR camera I play with that and the problem persists
    i did contact support and they suggested checking the connection of the tilt cable to the (MCU) and that is also ok too
