    Hi Guys,

    I know i read or saw a movie on this some where when I first set up the radians for the first time do I have to keep them all unplugged from each other and/or is there a specific order you have to program in? Also do I have to hook the harness from one to another to ensure proper setup? any pointers would be helpful to ensure a correct setup. Thanks

    Yes, you definitely have to program them up independently.
    I do tilt, roll, and yaw in that order.

    Adjust the gains down until you get no response and then come back up, just a few percent at a time. The sweet spot can only be one or two percent wide for a given camera, so it's easy to go too high, then too low and miss the spot.

    Hope that helps.
    Andy.

    Correct. Programming does not daisy chain.
