    Sticks not always centering. Gimbal or Firmware issue?

    Is this a software problem or a hardware problem with the Tango?

    I find that if I give the stick roll input (right stick left or right) then let it center, It often settles on 1480-90, or 1510 - 20. Mid stick should be 1500. If I knock the gimbal back and forth, it sometimes centers at 1500, but just as often, it's off center. I've had to put an RC deadband of 20 to counter this, because I'll be flying my quad and stop a rotation, but then it wants to keep rotating even tho I'm at center stick. It just seems like excessive deadband. Is this a known gimbal issue, or is it a firmware issue? If it's a gimbal issue, is it possible to upgrade or replace the Tango gimbals?

    And before you ask - yes, I've calibrated many times.

    sounds like a plastics tolerance problem. If there is a little play in the connection between sticks and potentiometer, then the center values can be off. Easiest fix is to open up the tango and add a tiny drop of epoxy glue (or something thick, don't use CA!) between the rotating part and the potentiometer to the side of the stick gimbal assembly. this should get rid of the play. You will need to re-calibrate!

    Thanks - I did try the glue trick, and it seems to have improved things quite a bit, but I'm not crazy about that solution. Luckily, the awesome TBS support responded by sending me a replacement gimbal assembly as a backup.

    I know a lot of people are fanatics about the Taranis, but I love my Tango. It's so nice to be able to do some tuning via the OSD without putting on goggles. I also use the screen for flying mi micro brushless indoors. Aside from this gimbal issue, I've been thrilled with it.

    Lack of Telemetry in 1.6x?

    @ Perna:
    The past few days I was about to prepare my TBS fleet for Summer including all the Software Updates that may have happened so, professionally as I am, I did all in one go instead of just testing one by one so when I finished updating everything like the CUAV Pixhack ( APM 3.4.X ), the FrSky Horus X12S ( OpenTX N2.7.1 ) and the TBS Crossfire ( CRSF 1.62 ) I ended up, again, with just the bare minimum of 9 Telemetrie entries being displayed on the Horus instead of 18.

    Figuring out where the culprit was took quite a while but apparently the cause of it was the Crossfire upgrade from 1.53 to 1.62 - After a quick dabble into 1.63 and the Telemetry Lost/Telemetry Recovered loop thing I went back to the latest build that wasn't any of the 1.6x and it worked again. Is this lack of Telemetry working as intended on the 1.6x Beta builds?
