Yesterday I received my "new" actually 1-year old used Zephyr from a nice gentlemen from this forum. Its in nice shape, and its a nice rig, I'm pretty
sure it was the right decision to upgrade to, and I'm looking forward to putting it to work.
Now, on my first tests I discovered it didn't hold the horizon so well when turned 180° and remembered the gimbal centering document I had read
some time ago. Thanks for that link Victor! And thanks Alan, the #6 spanner was a great hint =)
So I received my #6 spanner driver today and adjusted as described. With a 4-second drop time before it went off some 4-5 degrees, and it is now
centered perfectly (the Wagner Horizon I got for it is a nice toy and the 2 degree scale over the whole width of the LED panel helps a lot with getting
BUT: I had some initial confusion because I trimmed perfectly 90° to the adjustable axis, just as desribed, but weirdly enough the angle it went out
of center in the adjustable axis wasn't equal - although logic dictates it should. I figured it out anyway, but this way I discovered that in the Axis 90° to
the one that is adjustable - the gimbal is NOT centered It's not badly out of center but still with a 4-second drop time it goes off by 1 degree.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to adjust it in this axis, too, maybe inside the gimbal? (I certainly won't open it to check without
proper instruction...) If not, could it even mean the gimbal is damaged or is this just normal manufacturing tolerance?
Thanks for your input!
