    Hi all!
    I am a long time AP specialist, but I have been using Servo/Alexmos gimbals until about 5 days ago when our M5 came! One thing we have noticed is that the yaw is not centered and when we correct it with the yaw trim, it lags when we turn in that direction by x° that we set it at (I think it is centered at about -13.1°) Is there any way to calibrate the yaw as far as the center goes? Like I said, I'm used to the alexmos gui etc. and I've been watching the tutorials on the BT GUI but I didn't see anything about calibration. Anyways thanks in advance and I'm super happy to finally be using a MOVI!

    Victor need a bit more information when you say the yaw isn't centered. Are you using it handheld? When you say not centered do you mean the handle bars aren't perpendicular to the axis of the MoVI? If that's the case then it means the bars weren't mounted correctly. There is a 'front' to the hole on the Toad that is attached to the pan motor. One face of the toad will be square to the pan axis. Mark that so that you always know what the 'front' is and then mount the handle bars so they are aligned to the Toad. That might fix the issue. There should be any trimming required if you have done a solid job of balancing the camera setup.
