    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem that I can't find any info on for a fix. Recently we damaged our M5 gimbal and decided to use the frame cage from it to upgrade our M10. This meant removing the entire lower assembly of the M10 from the roll motor and tilt motor. When doing this we had not realised that the original motor position was critical as stated in the M10 cage upgrade PDF. So the motors original mounted position was never marked during disassembly. Now that we have the cage back together the tilt and roll motors constantly want to invert. We have tried removing the motor mounts that hold the cage to the motors to try and find the original orientation of the motor with no luck. No matter what position the cage is mounted to the motors we only ever get the same results where the roll and tilt axis spin uncontrollably.

    I now assume that the motors are calibrated to the cage position from the factory and that the tilt and roll motors will need to be recalibrate by freefly themselves. Still waiting to here back from Freefly about this but was hoping someone could shed some light on this issue.

    This sounds like it merits an email to support@freeflysystems.com, Anthony....I suspect you may need FF"s assistance to get it sorted.

    Hi Andy

    I had the exact same thing happen to me. I took it apart and did not mark the original motor position. Have you had any luck on this?

    Thanks

    James

    Tommy; I think you're probably going to need the assistance of FF Technical support so open a ticket with them by emailing to support@freeflysystems.com.
