I have had my Archer for 7 years and it has seen a lot of use. Lately I have been having some issues with my sled not returning to level after a drop test. After much effort and testing, I I was convinced it was the gimbal.
I had checked the stage and the battery mount and everything was tight and nothing was moving. (I thought). I took it to Tiffen and they were reluctant to put a new Archer gimbal on. I insisted. But it turns out I was wrong! I stil had the same problem of it not returning to level.
It was a relief on the one hand that I did not need a new gimbal, but frustrating that I could not figure out what was wrong. Tiffen spent an entire day with the sled and ended up putting in new upgraded fore and aft adjusters. They are the ones for the Ultra and Shadow that are a bit beefier than what I had.
The problem dissapeared. My sled flies like it did when it was new. Thank you to Tiffen for spending the extra time to figure this out. Robert Orf gave me the VIP treatment.
