I happily setup my Ronin S this morning, and got it balanced just like the video instructed. Shot some footage and then put it away. Later today, I setup the Ronin S again. But, this time I couldn't get it to balance properly. I got it so the camera faced forward, but I could not get the camera to look up and stay or in any other angle except facing forward. I shot some more test footage anyway, but I don't think it came out as good because the gimbal wasn't balanced as well as it was the first time.

Any suggestions of how to setup the Ronin S to get consistant results in balancing it?

Thanks in advance.

Hi tgroves, please unlock the lever first, push the tilt axis up or down, then tighten the knob to see if the issue persists, here is the tutorial video for your reference:

I got it to balance properly again. I must say though, trying to slide each axis to adjust can be frustrating as they are very tight no matter how loose the screws.

Particularly with the roll axis, it helps a great deal to orient the camera so that gravity is pulling down on the camera as you make the adjustment.

I hold the camera from underneath and lift up gently to take pressure off the axis slides.

I'll give that a try.

I also tried balancing the camera looking up first, and then making adjustments for when its facing forward. That seemed to make it a bit easier to balance the rest of the way. I know over time I'll get it down.

Also, I found this YouTube video where the guy was able to load up to 15 pounds of weight and get the Ronin S to work! Here's the link:
