    Hello, in mktools, the figure 3D must be perfectly still, if the cinestar is in the bench test ?

    Have you calibrated your ACC? It should be perfectly still.

    I've seen that level of "twitching" before...what you're seeing is a little more motion than I've seen though.
    Which version of the FC are you using Gustavo?

    Are you having problems with the copter when it's flying? That's the real test of whether there is a problem or not.

    I have the FC 2.1 with acc upgrade with the firmware 0.90j, I not have problems with the flight, is stable but have little jerks who did not have before and sometimes it shows in the video.

    Hmmm. I know the problem with little jerks! :)

    Seriously, it sounds like the FC might be telegraphing that it is having problems -- do you have a spare one that you could swap out just to test.

    Do remember that you can use MK Tool to connect up to a FC while it is sitting on your work bench and not connected to anything else -- you do need to remember to install the small jumper on the USB adapter to provide +5 volts power to the FC (remember to remove it when you're finished).

    Steve Maller has successfully used this technique to power up both the Flight Control Board, the Navigation Control Board, and the radio receiver, I believe.

    Andy.

    I not have other FC, I'll recalibrate and see if I have the same image.

    I had this twitching also and the FC was working correctly. I don't remember any problems occured and couldn't find the cause.

    3D screens is very useful for checking if the gyros are working properly or not. For instance, if YAW gyro has a problem, on 3D screen, if you move the copter a bit, it will spin like crazy. The same for other gyros too.
