FIMI X8 FC 1054E Gimbal Horizon level test Jul 14

Published on 14/07/2019

Further to Jul 10 test, did another test of gimbal horizon level with latest FW FC 1054E;
1. Slow yaw turn to right and left by keeping about 10seconds pause
2. Quick yaw turn to right and left by keeping about 10sec pause
3. Orbit with 3m/sec to CW and CCW with 10sec pause

In my eyes, gimbal keeps horizon level fairly well.

Due to wind, silver sheet could not hold the position so, put landing pad on partial green grass but more green compared to Jul 10.
Landing pad was not detected.
