When you purchase a CAME-TV gimbal, chances are that it has been pre-programmed with 3 main profiles. And each profile contains its own unique set of follow modes, which you can toggle between depending on which mode you need to use.
Profile 1 will enable Follow Modes for both Pan and Tilt (Yaw and Pitch). Profile 2 will enable Follow Mode ONLY for Pan (Yaw) and will Disable Tilt (Pitch). Profile 3 will disable All Follow Modes. The Camera heading will stay constant.
However, in the event that these follow mode settings are unknowingly or mistakenly altered in the SimpleBGC software, you can manually restore them by dialing them in yourself.
When connecting the Gimbal via USB to the software, sometimes you may find the motors do not operate when you power the entire system On. The problem may be a setting in the software that temporarily disables the Motors. This setting is used when you are working on the gimbal, and need to change settings without powering the system off or disconnecting.
To turn the motors back on, click on the Motors ON/OFF Button located at the lower left of the SimpleBGC Application Screen.
If your system is powered on and connected to the Software, this button will toggle power to the Motors On or OFF.
We DO NOT RECOMMEND upgrading the firmware on your gimbal as it will reset the Gimbal configuration and you will have to start from scratch to reprogram the gimbal. Even if you have saved your previous PID profiles, the new firmware requires an entirely new profile that is specific to that exact firmware version. More than likely your PID Profiles that were saved using a previous firmware will not work correctly with the new firmware.
If you do not know how to Tune your own system from scratch, we recommend downgrading the firmware back to the original version, and restoring the Default Profile.
If you have a Gimbal with Encoders this will especially be difficult to revert. Encoders are tuned specifically for each motor for each gimbal assembled. These settings will not translate to other gimbals exactly.
The CAME-MINI 2 is a full 3-Axis stabilizer (Pitch, Roll, and Yaw) using the latest 32 Bit SBGC controller with Dual IMU sensors. This is the most advanced controller and sensor combination available for gimbals using SBGC system.
