    I'm having a major roll axis drift issue. I have a 1DX II mounted with a 16-35 mark III lens. Balanced almost perfectly. However, the horizon drifts almost to 9 degrees. Sometimes it'll drive to 1 degree, then minutes later it'll increase to 5 degrees. Someones it'll drift to the right. Sometimes to the left (without re-balancing). I've restarted multiple times during shoots. It's killing me. Almost ruins shots and I can't get things working right. Please help??

    What firmware version are you running?

    In the new Blackjack firmware, they released an update last month that addressed a Roll drift. Newest version is 2.0.1. Here's the bulletin about it:

    • This is a bugfix for "roll goes off when panning" symptom.
    • Root cause was loading a configuration file from the app to MōVI.
    • If you are experiencing this symptom, you should "reset robot settings". There shouldn't be any further problems using this app.
