Hello,

I purchased I new gimbal and I have problem to static balance. While at first time, is easy to balance in one sled direction respect the horizon, if I rotate the sled 180 degrees, the sled is not balanced respect the horizon. This is, is not balanced in the 360 degrees of the pan movement. For this reason, it´s impossible to make a good dynamic balance. What could be the problem? because the gimbal is brand new.

Thanks

Is the gimbal centring due to a wrong design or could be easily repaired?

Thanks

Nacho, who makes this Gimbal? A good Gimbal is hard to find. Its not as easy as it looks. There are only 3-4 companies that make a worthy gimbal in my opinion.
