    Does anyone know what the max possible gain setting can be set to?
    The software allows me to put in over 500% but I don't notice any difference in gain from a 200% setting?
    If the gain setting window had "max" or 100% of 100% available then I would know what the max can be set to.
    Thanks.

    Hi Phillip, I think the max gain is 799.

    Philip: When I tried settings the tilt gains way high (500%) just for alleged sport, I thought it didn't have any effect. Then I power cycled the gimbal and the tilt servo went into serious delirium tremens. (Aka "the shakes" -- really badly!)

    I don't get any shakes with gain set to 500%, (roll axis) in fact I could find no difference in response between 200 and 500%. Backing the setting to 100% shows a lot of difference (a lot less response) so I think 180% is the max effect that I can see.

    It's a large home build roll cage, driven by a high speed servo / pinion turning inside a large 10 inch dia internal tooth rack. The radian is fitted to the centre of rotation of the cage. Seems to work ok at slow speeds, so will keep horizon level during gentle maneuvers. Seems to over correct though during fast, short jerky maneuvers.
