I have a fully stock 3dr solo, black cube, oficial firmware etc. but I wanted to install a gimbal and i find this tarot t-2d i think and 3d printed a piece so it sits perfectly in the solo, i did all the wireing but theres an odd problem, using the controller i can tilt the camera downwards, but it cant go upwards again, its really weird and i tryed to do something simillar to this video

) but it just dont work, overall the gimball looks and works grate, has nice stabilization and looks almost stock but this detail its very anoying, if someone could help me, thanks!
 
I have a Tarot gimble and it's CAN bus controlled ... how did you get yours to do anything at all is puzzling ..
The CAN bus is outside the realm of my expertise and I work with microcontrollers everyday! I'll be thinking about your situation and look into my Tarot unit more closely.

After a good 10 hours of headache trying to connect the gimbal to my windows 10 computer, I was able to update the firmware and it just started working, thanks anyway!🤝
 
Excellent!
Yes, hours = success .. well, sometimes haha!
Can you give some details on this ? Your Tarot is NOT CAN bus controlled ??
It is using the regular servo pulse type of control input ?
It is a Tarot gimbal ?
Where did you get software file to update it with ?
.. and so on.
Very interested here!

Okay, using my multimeter I found out that the solo sends a servo like pulse to control the gimbal pitch, and the tarot t-2d has a few pins out in the motherboard, and I did the installation based in this guide Tarot Gimbal — Rover documentation and in the exact same guide you can find the pc software and the gimbal firmware, the only thing is that the original serial cable just work up to windows 7, so i had a serial cable hanging around, I soldered the connections to the exact type of connector at the sides of the gimbal's pcb, and followed this guide to connect it to my pc Tarot T-2D Gimbal connection to Windows 10 Info
 
OK! Thank You! This type of surgery is right up my alley.

I have to admit something, it is a Zenmuse H4-3D gimbal I was thinking about from my junk box. It is for that "other" drone co. we don't talk about, haha .. I just got it out and re-discovered it in the light of day, it is definitely CAN bus and I have the driver module for it as well. For some reason I thought it was a Tarot.. I have some Walkera gimbals also which are 2D but very nice and lightweight. These are definite simple servo pulse controlled and this inspires me to mount one up for on a Solo.
 
btw have you flown it yet and does 2D look good enough on the Solo in flight?

Sounds silly but worst case scenario you COULD at least as an option to let it pitch down and back up attach like a tether from a spring wire u have in ballpen's for example. With minimal tension not to burn out the motors when u pitch down or disrupt the stabilisation in rest. It sometimes can require the most ridiculous shit to at least make something little bit more.functional than it is. Ill post a link of one such modds on my XK X380 that looked epic but worked as i intended hehe.

Thats the funny part. I had a 2min flight before it didnt do shit anymore. So have no.footage as of yet. But that unit is 2nd on my plans to get that stuff back to business. So ill tell you when i know. So far my drones with 2D gimbals were just not cutting it. Even with decent footage relative to the average and post processed with high end stabilisation software it still wasnt good enough to have overall smooth video throughout the total length of most footage.

And i dont expect it to be any different this time under my solo. 2D Gimbals are just in my experience not doing it. This unit i got the way it is with the gimbal soldered stuck on it. But never ever will i buy a 2D. If i need or want a gimbal 3D is the only option. Less than i just rather have none at al.
