Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC User Manual 2015.09 V1.4 Warning & Disclaimer Do not modify or adjust the Z15-BMPCC. The Z15-BMPCC has been calibrated specifically for the designated Camera and Lens before it leaves the factory. Please mount only the designated camera and lens to the Z15-BMPCC. No adjusting or amending is allowed to the Z15-BMPCC. Do not modify or add any other component/ device (such as filters, lens hood, etc.) to the camera. Make sure to use the original camera battery, otherwise performance may be hindered and also possibly cause internal malfunctions and damage to the gimbal. The Z15-BMPCC can only work with Flight Control Systems developed by DJI (A2/ WooKong M: please upgrade to the latest Flight Control System firmware), so as to ensure the highest amount of stability and precision. Please download the corresponding Assistant Software and upgrade the Flight Control System’s MC firmware, otherwise the Z15-BMPCC will work abnormally. Make sure the Flight Control System operates in the safest manner when the main battery power is connected. We strongly recommend users to remove all propellers and use the power supply from the R/C system or flight pack battery and keep children away during gimbal calibration and parameter setup. Follow these steps to mount and connect the gimbal to your aircraft as well as during the installation of the Assistant Software on your computer. Please respect the AMA’s National Model Aircraft Safety Code.

For mounting receiver S1000 Landing Gear Lens direction Aircraft nose direction step5: Install gimbal on landing gear with mounting brackets. Tighten screws and use thread lock. Ensure the lens is pointing towards the aircraft nose. Make sure the top and bottom plates of the damping unit stay parallel when mounting. Prevents stretching and distortion. Keep overall balance when mounting in order to make sure the center of gravity is balanced on each of the three axis lines. The gimbal’s center of gravity has been set from the factory. The center of gravity position directly determines the gimbal’s overall performance. Do not adjust the gimbal’s center of gravity by yourself. The gimbal is highly precise and depends on this precision for the most optimal performance. Do not remove any screws on the gimbal which may result in inferior performance or even damage to the gimbal itself. Do not unplug any cables attached to the gimbal ports or change the mechanical structure. Make sure the wiring is correct, otherwise, it may lead to abnormal gimbal operation. 10 ©2014 DJI.

Carry out the following procedures to connect the camera to the gimbal. Camera Record Control Cable step1: Connect gimbal HDMI-HD/AV module to camera “HDMI OUT” with the AV video power cable. step2: Connect camera record control cable to the camera’s LANC REMOTE CONTROL port. step3: Toggle the HD/AV Switch to the AV position if using a normal wireless video transmitter module. Toggle the HD/AV Switch to the HD position if using a DJI HD wireless video 3-Positon transmitter module. Switch Remove the camera from the gimbal before disconnecting the cable between the HDMI-HD/ AV module and camera. Record Control 3-Positon The Z15-BMPCC translates a TX command to a recordSwitch control signal to start and stop a recording. Set a 2-position switch/channel for remote record control. Make sure the record control cable is correctly connected. Whichever 2-position switch on your transmitter is selected, connect the right channel of receiver to the AUX3 port. One of the two switch positions is to start recording and the other is to stop recording. Position-1 Position -2: Start recording Position-2 Position -1: Stop recording 2-Positon Switch 11 ©2014 DJI.

Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC User Manual Pre -Flight Check Check Before Each Flight Gimbal is properly installed and attached to landing gear and the camera is mounted Before powering on, spin the gimbal by hand through the complete rotational axes to ensure nothing is blocking its movement. All cables are connected correctly without any plugged in backwards or into the wrong ports. AV video power cable is properly soldered and shielded if an AV video transmission module is used. Verify transmitter settings. Camera record control cable is correctly mounted. Camera menu options and settings are correct. A proper connection between GCU and RC receiver. A proper connection between GCU and flight control system. Latest Flight Control System MC Firmware is installed. Refer to the Gimbal LED Indicator section in the Appendix for understanding the connection status between the camera and gimbal. Refer to the Trouble Shooting section in the Appendix if an abnormal situation occurs. 21 ©2014 DJI. All Rights Reserved. Pre -Flight Check correctly and securely. Zenmuse Z15-BMPCC User Manual Flight Test step1: Ensure batteries are fully charged for your TX, GCU and all the other devices on your aircraft. step2: Make sure all connections and wiring are in good condition. step3: Switch on the TX. step4: Adjust camera position on the roll axis of gimbal to level before powering on. step5: Power on the gimbal and wait for the self initialization test to complete. The roll, yaw and pitch axes will rotate quickly at the same time. step6: After self initialization, the camera lens will point towards the aircraft’s nose and the three axis gimbal should be in the position as illustrated in the above diagram. step7: The gimbal goes into a second stage initialization. At this time the three axes will start to rotate very slowly. step8: The gimbal is at a standstill after initialization and ready to use. step9: Toggle the assigned Working Modes switch on your transmitter and make sure it is working properly. step10: Switch the Working Modes to Non orientation-locked, FPV Mode (Reset), Orientationlocked Mode respectively. Then try to push your sticks lightly in the Roll, Tilt and Pan directions to feel if your gimbal moves in the corresponding directions. If not, go back to the Gimbal Working Mode Switch Set to correct your settings. If the gimbal is abnormal (unlike the diagram shows) after initialization, please refer to the Trouble Shooting section in Appendix. 22 ©2014 DJI. All Rights Reserved. Appendix Attention For safety reasons, please pay serious attention to all of the following items: To avoid motor damage ensure nothing blocks the servo drive module’s total range of movement. Before powering on, spin the gimbal by hand through the complete rotational axes to ensure nothing is blocking the mechanical movement of the gimbal. Be sure to mount the side of servo drive module1 with ports facing towards the aircraft tail. The gimbal’s center of gravity balance has been preset. The gimbal balance is directly correlated with the gimbal performance. Please do not adjust the gimbal’s center of gravity by yourself. The gimbal is a sophisticated device. Do not remove any other screws from the gimbal which may result in poor performance or even damage. Do not unplug any cables attached to the gimbal ports or change the mechanical structure. Make sure all wiring is correct, otherwise it may lead to abnormal operation or the gimbal may not operate efficiently. Make sure to connect the wireless video transmission module to the GCU prior to powering on the system. The factory AV video power cable is recommended. Make sure you solder the AV video power cable to the wireless video transmission module correctly. Ensure the cables are insulated and protected to prevent and type of short circuit. Pay close attention to the voltage of S800 EVO/S1000 and be sure it is within the defined limits (6S) when using one battery for both the S800 EVO/S1000 and power supply for the gimbal. Prevent the gimbal from ever touching the contact points of a power cable; otherwise it may lead to a short circuit of the gimbal, resulting in complete failure. 1-Pilot Solution This is an example of the wiring configuration. Prepare one 14-channel Transmitter/RC receiver for the aircraft and gimbal control. Setup the Aileron, Elevator, Throttle, and Rudder channels on Transmitter for the aircraft’s roll, elevator, throttle, and rudder control. Also connect the Transmitter’s AUX2 for aircraft control modes (Please refer to the Flight Control System User Manual). Choose three 3-position switches for gimbal’s ROLL, TILT, and PAN rotation control. The switch at center position is 0 velocity and at the end point position is at maximum velocity. Choose one 3-position switch/channel as the gimbal’s Working Modes switch (MODE). Choose one 2-position switch/channel as the camera record control switch (AUX3). Choose one 3-position switch/channel as the camera aperture control switch (AUX1). Connect the receiver to GCU and Flight Control System MC correctly. 23 ©2014 DJI. All Rights Reserved.
