    There are several problems with the new firmware 1.1.4 for the skyline:

    - When your machine turn around Z axis (yaw) the roll and tilt of the stabilization are influenced: the gimbal starts to react on roll and tilt stronger and stronger to finaly cut off.

    - No end limits for roll

    Photohigher has been warned about these problems and I also request some changes in the software like:

    - having numerical values for the sliders
    - having the firmware number of the skyline appearing in the control software

    The turbine (membrer of the french Mikrokopter board) have found how the "SET LEVEL " works.

    here's his comments:

    Actually Photohigher is focusing on the skyline firmware problem. I know they are working also on HERO gimbal but I have no more infos about pricing and availability, I'm sorry.

    Hi,

    Photohigher has informed me that the roll servo wheel can present a small problem on the last AV200 delivered (since 10 days): during the laser cutting process, the plastic sheet has moved resulting in a non concentric center hole.
    This problem can lead to hard point on the roll course.

    If you see such a problem on your newly buyed AV200, please inform your reseller immediatly. Photohigher will provide you a replacement part.

    Best regards,
    Cédric

    The inspection assembly can'tdetect this kind of problem because all the gimbl are tested plugged. The massive torque of the servo doesn't see the "hard point". You can only see it by rotating the gimbal by hand.
    I'm pretty sure that it won't be seen on videos because the servo's torque is much more important that the hard point.

    But mechanically it has to be changed, it's sure :)

    the hoverfly stabilisation card is still using the analogical method to compensate. It send a servo signal. the skyline is sendinf conituously a neutral point to the servo and it changes the motors directly from the poteniometer input allowing a far much faster answer of the servo.
    I bet that when the skyline will have pass thru her yougness problem, it will beat all other standard analogical stabilisation system (with potentiometers) :)

    I'm not speaking about the tests I'm doing, I'm speaking about the test done by photohigher.
    I really don't think that Photohigher's staff is releasing products with such a default consciously.

    about the current drawing, I don't know how photohigher is doing their tests and what is their acceptance criteria.

    anyway that's not the scope of this thread :)
