I'm experiencing a mildly concerning issue where my Ronin-S (properly balanced with an a7iii+ 50mm sony apsc lens) drifts down on the tilt axes. I've run all the auto, balance,  and calibration tests and nothing seems to help. Has anyone experienced this or know of a fix?

Thanks,

Jordan

Hi Jordan, sorry to read on the drift issue with Ronin-S, may I know if you are running the latest firmware? What calibration have you tried? Did you try system calibration and the joystick calibration both?

Hi Mindy, i have not yet updated to the latest firmware as the release notes dont seem to imply any stability updates, but i will try that. I have tried both calibration tests youbhave mentioned. In the motor parameters the tilt power seems to hover around 1-4 which makes me believe it might be a setting or software issue, and not a motor problem. Not sure if that helps at all.

Have you done a joystick calibration?
Tap the trigger 4 times, and hold on the 4th tap. All 3 mode lights should blink, then move the joystick multiple times all over the place.
Tap 4 times and hold on the 4th tap to finish calibration.

Thanks for more details, please update the firmware to the latest version to see if the issue persists, thank you.

If you have auto-tuned, the motors should be able to support that lens with no problems unless you have it slightly off balance. Also if you have push on the tilt axis turned on and your out of balance, the gimbal will also look like it's drifting.

Hi All, thanks for your support! Turns out the first Joystick Calibration I tried didn't work properly. After trying it again this has fixed my problem. Thanks so much!

The Ronin is perfectly steady in all positions. The app says I have to re-calibrate it. I've tried multiple times, and even though it is physically calibrated, the app says otherwise. When I run the balance test it is supper jittery, and the centre position (recenter button) is tilted left.
I don't know what else to do.

Same here, I am about to upload a video of this problem myself. I've tried all of the suggestions above none of them work. The downward auto-tilt seems like a problem with the joystick. During the auto-tune, the tilt continues slowly going down during the tuning. You can double tap to reset, but it continues to tilt straight down. when I power off, it goes back to the normal balance setting that it was balanced facing forward. I've updated the firmware, tried the 4 press and hold. It seems to stop where it is when it resets, but once it's finished, rebooting in continues to tilt downward. Please help this is very frustrating

I’m having the same issue out of the box. Balanced, auto tuned and balance tested = excellent. The joint angle bandaid works but if you turn off the ronin s you have to go thru all the same process as above. Also, if you recenter the gimbal with a double tap after calibration it does it again. I own a osmo pro and never had an issue. You turn it on and start shooting. This is a hack fix and it’s not a solution to the problem. ☹️

I am having the same issue. It worked fine for a few times, then started to tilt forward.

I am having all the same problems on this post. I did all the recommended fixes. Still nothing. The camera mounted to my Ronan-S still tilts forward when I tilt the gimbal forward. It was working for a few days, but now, no matter what I do, I can't fix this.

I'm having the same issues - to bypass this i ended up disabling the joystick up and down that controls the tilt up and down and it works... doesnt solve the problem but i can at least use it... I hope this helps someone!

BIG ISSUE OVER HERE. THE GIMBLE literally can't stop rotating anti clockwise. I have tried everything. It turns pretty fast

Recently purchased the Ronin S.  As I am going through calibration, I noticed that the camera will nosedive when I lean it forward and will not respond after that I have to double tap the trigger to re-center it. I have installed the latest firmware. My calibration says all of my Axis are excellent. Can anyone help me with this
