The follow mode allows you to move the target angle by
simply rotating the gimbal frame without having to use a remote control or a joystick. Usually it's only used for
yaw and pitch axes (and not for roll).
If you have a 2-axis gimbal the process goes like this: choose Follow PITCH,ROLL, then set
Follow ROLL start, deg to 90 and Follow ROLL mix, deg to 0. Now the target angle
of your pitch axis follows your movements, but roll keeps its angle at 0.
For 3-axis gimbals the Follow YAW box should be selected.
To have leeway/freedom, you can put some deadband. The number represents the range of
stationary angle. When you go over that angle, the camera will start to follow. This is effective at getting rid of
shaking while still keeping the general needed direction.
To make the rotations smoother you can increase the LPF in the RC Settings or maybe play with
the Expo curve and SPEED values in the Follow Mode tab.
Estimate frame angles from motors is a setting that should increase the range of functioning
angles. It does however require:
- correct number of poles (in the Basic tab)
- motors not missing steps
- offset (in the Follow Mode tab).
Since you can have many profiles, you might want at least one engaging in follow mode, while keeping the others
at the disabled state.
