  • Whoa, can't keep up with you! Lol at the pumpkin and nice edit! We used Dragonframe 3 when developing so if you can't get 4 to work, I'd suggest trying 3. But first, try manually adding the motor and choose DF Moco Arduino. For others' referen…
  • Hi Alexander, yes you can connect an external battery to the Lynx controller. It needs to be 12 volt / 3 amp and have a 2.1mm barrel jack. Something like this would likely work well: https://www.amazon.com/MAXOAK-50000mAh-Portable-External-Notebook-…
  • @Schleicher12000 , thanks for including the video. Makes it way easier to troubleshoot And it was all very clear, you should be a voice actor lol. Really appreciate you supporting Cinetics and the kind words about our products. We're able to keep b…
  • Hi guys, sorry for the trouble. First, confirm you are on the correct 1.0 firmware... reset settings and go to manual move. Speeds should be 50/50/70 for pan/tilt/slide. Use the medium torque setting. It's always a good idea to reset to default sett…
  • The instructions Augie and I added are only necessary if this was not checked during our QA process or was adjusted since then somehow. Most any Lynx sent besides the early Kickstarter kits do not need this adjustment. The play shown in @AJG 's vid…
  • HI @miguel_muc we are aware of the issue, working on the best solution, and we will post here with an update soon. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks for your feedback.
  • @Django Thanks for the feedback. We are working on this now and will be in touch!
  • Hi Rainer, We are sending you a new pair of rails now. You received one of the very first Lynx kits. One of the first 10 we shipped. We're very sorry there were some issues. But in our defense, we've been prompt to address each concern you have h…
  • @KJNoble did you click the Boards Manager option at the top of the list on page 6 and search "due" as shown on page 7? Maybe that is the issue. @Rainer 5% is the default ramp, but you can adjust this as needed. 50% ramps up the first half of the mo…
  • Hi guys, if you ordered through Kickstarter, the standard kit is 24" and there was an option to add the extension. The retail kits include the extension, and are also priced higher. Please send us an email if you'd like to order an extension, the…
  • And just for fun, a vid of Dragonframe controlling Lynx motors...
  • Matthew, sorry for my delay here.. Were you able to resolve this? I attached a pic of how the serial port shows up when this works properly. There could be some variation here depending on when your controller was made. I'm using Dragonframe 3.6.3.…
  • @ay8s just realized I forgot to reply to your note. Nice to hear from you and glad the motors are nice and quiet! The quick connect that connects the controller to the pan/tilt snaps apart with force. And once it is apart, you can use the included …

  • @Rudy this is not possible currently, but certainly something we can look into!

  • I guess you could define your own home position. The center is just helpful so you can accurately get it to the same spot. If you save a preset and set the home position as a different location, you would just have to remember the precise position. …
  • The controller does not trigger video. You need to do that on the camera. The cable send photo trigger and exposure time info. We'll look into adding this feature though Thanks!
  • @Rainer, I'm not sure if this was before the most recent firmware update. Try setting ramping down to 0 or 1%. And is the problem for a Video program? Try Timelapse - Continuous. Longer run times should be more accurate also, as you noticed.
  • Actually, looks like the app was set to only be available in the US by mistake. We just submitted an update to Google to make it available in all countries. So it should be available in the store in a few hours. Thanks!
  • Hi @Kai We're looking into this now. In the mean time, you can try... -open chrome -sign in with your gmail acount -go to playstore (the website, not the playstore app in your phone) -search for the app that you want but isn't available in your c…
  • Weird. I haven't heard this issue and we have several Lynx users in Canada. This link doesn't work? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lynx.motion.control
  • Rainer, sorry we forgot to put this screw in place. Not sure how that made it passed us. Glad you were able to get it fixed. You have one of the very first Lynx kits we shipped, thanks for communicating these issues to us so we can make sure to corr…
  • Good news, @Rainer ! Looking forward to seeing what you shoot with Lynx!
  • Hi @Rainer you can always email us for private communication. We're happy to work with you here as well though I think we've got most of your issues resolved. Just let us know if you have other questions

  • I think this is fixed in the 1.0 firmware?
  • @glenn please try the fix shown in the attached. Although, you can always come by the shop to have us do this since you are in Austin
  • Looks like the play is in the tilt motor. Make sure the screw shown in the attached pic is tight. Will put some more info together on tuning the motors up. Give us a couple days please. Thanks guys!
  • Hi @Rainer we'll be sending out firmware update instructions for the early bird backers soon. Also, I think it would be helpful to start new discussion threads for specific issues instead of posting everything in this intro thread. That will keep …

  • H Tim, just emailed your tracking #

  • Hi @Matthew_G you could try just drag and dropping the photos into you comment instead of using photobucket. Try charging up the controller and then unplugging the wall outlet, then connect via USB as described in the instructions. If you try this…
  • @TimS early backers can expect to start receiving their Lynx kits around the end of next week depending on how close you are to Austin and if you've completed the survey Thanks!!
