Hi all, my F-bracket has the hole for the 'aircraft-pin' clocked at an angle so when it is attached to gimbal/yoke it pushes the post/sled to my back at an angle, my question is this correct? Secondly when I balance (right side up with camera upside down) while flying my side-side is off so I adjust? Should i balance upsisde down instead? Also I am getting what feels to be a bunch of lateral movement, I have tried shorter drop, repositioning the batt. maybe add weight to the camera?

I am using a Flyer with HVX and one v-mount batt

Thanks in advance for any comments suggestions

I always balance with the camera on the bottom when setting up for low mode. Otherwise you'll be fighting the sled wanting to flip the camera back up when you are operating.

Not sure what you mean about the hole being at an angle. My pin goes straight through with even space from the hole to the end of the bracket. Maybe adjust your arm connection bolt settings to compensate or check with Tiffen about the bracket.

Posting a pic here should get an answer pretty quick too.
