    Found a Freefly HDMI converter from Finland and it works perfectly. What puzzles me is WHY Kopterworx wants to harm its good reputation by claiming something that is not true and what will come across them sooner or later.

    I will contact Kopterworx again. Hope they answer this time. What they have done in the demo video is false advertising in my opinion. Just plain stoopid.

    I sent a message to three email address that I see. Nothing yet. The beauty of the KW is that it doesn't need external power.

    I don't have access to a RED. Will try it next weekend if I meet up with Jon.

    Did first flight with RED today. Despite balancing the gimbal as well as humanly possible, there was quite a bit of jittering. Especially tilt jitter. It is already a bot cold in Finland so I had red O-rings in four dampeners and blue in the other four. Maybe my setup was too flexible?

    I have all the O-rings, red, blue and black. What is recommended with RED? Black O-rings in all eight dampeners or maybe four in blue and four in black? Proven solutions appreciated here. Thanks.

    Hi Tuukka,

    I'm curious what controller or controllers you are using for your gimbal? I've read a few folks are ahving trouble with Alex M controller setup and I was considering using three Radians to do the job. Any advice?

    At present i have the normal Freefly servo setup, so I am using three Radians for stabilization. I am about to replace the servos with brushless motors when I receive them and I am going to use Alexmos stabilization with brushless motors.

    Alexmos does not work with servo based system and Radian does not work with brushless motors.

    Thanks for your reply Tuukka.
    Great information. Thanks for clarifying the application of the Alex moss versus the Radian, that's something I was not aware of.
