    Hey All, I am trying to fly a jumbo sized lens 21-100 on the R2 rig on Alexa mini under the X, I have put the digi ignite landing gear on, it all fits, is 15kg so flight times are down, but still ok

    Problem is stabiltiy, the R2 has a lot of micro vibes going on, cant seem to tune it out

    Have put in stronger shores into the ISO under the X, but still ropey

    Any ideas? I would usually fly the Movi Pro, but cant fit the big old donkey cock of a lens into it

    Any advice or ideas appreciated

    Cheers, Josh

    That seems to be an issue with gimbals with integrated landing legs on the Alta X. My theory is that the big props are creating strong, rhythmic turbulence that hits the legs and shakes the pan axis. When I fly the same Movi Pro gimbal under the Alta 8, the issue goes away. It also goes away when I pull the legs off. Then it's just a matter of landing on a platform instead. 'Really wish FF would address this with a set of retracts...

    Thanks Ben, I tried a few flights without landing gear on and I agree, had much better results, but the X is a total bitch to land in the wind onto a padded cradle, with it’s wonky extendable cross shape, I nearly crashed and decided it was not worth the risk, I think it works with the pro as it has a smaller footprint and the gear stays out of the downforce zone, Copter worx in Germany, or maybe rotor worx does a retractable for the X, at only 5000 euro!!!!

    Hey Jason we have also since released a set for Alta X which is not comprised of DJI modules. We did a full overhaul of the mechanics and electronics, produced a new assembly to address reliability and calibrated operation. More info below should you still be interested;

    Happy to answer any questions should you have any!
