The motor stiffness adjustment allows you to fine tune the amount of power that is applied by the motors as they maintain the camera’s position. When the stiffness value is adjusted lower, you can push the camera easier. When the stiffness value is set properly, a suitable resistance will be provided by the motors to stabilize the camera when an external force is added.
If the camera vibrates, the stiffness value is set too high. Adjust the motor stiffness of each axis until the vibration disappears.
The motors’ angles can be fine-tuned.
