The information on this page refers to firmware v2.43e and higher.

Since firmware version v2.43 two- and one-axis gimbals are officially supported by the STorM32 controller, for both conventional and T-STorM32 (encodered) setups.

General

Some general points:

  • The unused motor axis must be disabled, i.e. the corresponding Pitch Motor Usage, Roll Motor Usage or Yaw Motor Usage parameter in the [GUI:Setup] tab must be set to “disabled”.
  • A 2nd IMU is not used, even if one is present. It can be disabled (Imu2 Configuration = “off”), or not, it doesn't matter.

The following articles host comments and setups of users dating from the days when the STorM32 didn't officially support 2- and 1-axis gimbals. They might be of interest nevertheless, especially the setups, so they are linked to here:
