Gimbal pid tuning

In the 2-axis gimbal system, the pitch axis works flawlessly both in the hand and on the vehicle. However, although the roll axis is assembled by hand, it does not work on the vehicle. I wonder what is the reason?

There could be a myriad of reasons why your roll axis is playing hard to get, coupd you explain what rhe issue is exactly?

Otherwise here are some things to look into further:

  • Mounting Issues: Sometimes, it’s all about the vibes, or rather, the vibrations. When you attach the gimbal to the vehicle, additional vibrations could be interfering with the roll axis’s operation. Check if the mounting is secure and if there’s any excessive play that could be causing the issue.

  • Power Supply Problems: On the vehicle, the gimbal might not be getting the same level of power or a stable power supply compared to when it’s operated by hand. Ensure the gimbal’s power requirements are met and the connections are solid.

  • Interference: When mounted on the vehicle, the gimbal might be subjected to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from other electronic components. This could affect the roll axis’s performance. Investigate if any nearby components could be the source of such interference.

  • Software Settings: There might be settings or calibrations that are specific to vehicle-mounted operations. Check if the gimbal’s software has different modes or settings for handheld versus mounted use, and ensure the correct configuration is applied.

  • Weight Distribution: The balance might shift when the gimbal is mounted on the vehicle, affecting the roll axis’s ability to function correctly. Ensure the gimbal is properly balanced in its mounted configuration.

  • Faulty Components: There’s always a chance that a component is faulty or gets damaged when mounted on the vehicle. Inspect the roll axis components for any signs of damage or wear.
