3. Installation and debugging

1. Precautions for C10 installation
    1. When the C10 is not in use, please do not hang it on the drone. Long term suspension will accelerate the deformation of the shock absorber ball, resulting in the reduction of the shock absorber effect and jelly phenomenon;
    2. When installing the gimbal, the mounting bar, suspension hook and shock absorber plate must be absolutely perpendicular and parallel to each other. Incorrect installation will cause the deformation of the shock absorber ball, which will lead to the reduction of the shock absorption effect and the failure of self inspection. Please see the below pictures.
    3. The C10 has been commissioned in the factory and can be directly used when connecting H16/H16 Pro.
