Want the headers soldered by us?
Click below to add the service (one per each board)
1. VERY IMPORTANT – Use least amount of heat when soldering ~ 300F. specially the daughter board. Be quick as possible and make sure the solder flows freely to the opposite side.
2. Quickest method
1. Solder the female 5 pin and 6 pin headers to the driver board (the larger one)
2. Cut the male pins to size, insert in to soldered female headers
3. Place the daughter board on top and finish the soldering.
3. The power tabs (Lipo & Ground) – This is simply a pass thru (Just like a ‘Y’ harness / Parallel connection) and nothing special. You can route power any way you like. No, you don’t need to have 2 sets of power leads connected to the 3rd axis board unless you are using it as a power pass-thru.
4. You will need ferrite rings at all locations where the IMU wires connects to the boards (both 2 & 3 axis). Please do yourself a favor – Just add ferrite rings and test for I2C errors BEFORE TWISTING THE IMU WIRES.
5. If you are calibrating or doing anything IMU related: Both boards needs to be powered from an external power source. If you connect USB only all lights will be active but will notice tons of I2C errors. Yes USB Only worked just fine when using 2-axis only board
Note about brushless gimbals & Controllers
Brushless gimbals and controllers are very new to the market and is an emerging technology. You will need some patience and effort to get it to work as seen on youtube. THIS IS NOT A PLUG AND PLAY DEVICE!
You will need some understanding of Microsoft windows drivers, software settings and tuning the gimbal software to your liking and to suit your multirotor.
We will try our best to answer your questions and point you in the right direction but getting things to work the way it’s supposed to will be YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. Please understand this before you purchase any Brushless Gimbal Related Item.
