Thanks -- and just to confirm (apologies for making you repeat yourself), this is with an on-ground power up and then suspending the Cinestar so that the gear is not on the ground/table-top, right? I have a dim memory of seeing this behavior on my C8/3-Axis as well when I did an on-ground power up, followed by suspending it and slow pan after a few tens of seconds. I don't see that behavior in the air, though, so I didn't think much of it at the time (I was rushing to get ready for a shoot.) I think this is going to be a question where JohnC or Tabb will need to respond as I don't see anything abnormal with the screen shots. Andy.
