    Try re-flashing the firmware to reset it back completely to defaults and see if that works?

    just to clarify when i put the radian to pan (no servo conneted the angle demand does change back to '0'), its just when i put set the default to its rightful module setting to 'tilt'. the angle demand wont change off -131/-129.....

    Is the orange LED flashing slowly at all ?.

    Just to confirm:
    The green LED flashes quickly for a second or so then goes solid
    The orange led flashes quickly and stays like that ?.
    You are using the PC software downloaded from the Freefly site
    The module is level (horizontal)
    The current angle does not change if you rotate the axis by hand (servo disconnected) ?

    Hi JOhn, thanks for the reply.

    The green light is solid with the orange light flashing quickly. The module is perfectly horizontal. The angle of demand does not change when i disconnect the servos and it reads the same. -130/ -129. any ideas or is this faulty???? ive flashed it with the new f/w. any help would be appreciated as ive spent all w/e on this....

    It sounds faulty - though the symptoms are a bit strange because if the gyro was not working, I would expect the self-test to catch it.

    It should be more or less as simple as fit it and adjust the gain. If the orientation is correct, everything else is pretty much automatic.

    Tabb talks with the distributors - so we will get him to sort out the exchange and get that module back to me to see what is going on.
