How to Connect PID update:
Download Simple bgc from basecamelectronics and follow their software installation instructions. Also read the Simple bgc manual, it is well worth the effort.
To connect to simple bgc, turn on the EC1 with the camera balanced. Connect, to the stabilizer by way of the mini usb port in the EC1's handle. We are using Mac OS and must launch the program from the .jar file using java.
Select the connection and click connect. Before moving forward, save the original profile. Go to File, Save, Save all profiles to a file. Title the file and save. If necessary these profiles can be used to restore the stabilizer.
How to Connect Firmware:
Go to update. Click on check for updates, Select firmware 2.60b4, upgrade, click skip, wait, the program will disconnect once the firmware has been updated. Re-launch simple bgc.
Once Simple BGC is connected to the EC1. Go to file choose, load profiles from a file, select the PID profile supplied from OwlDolly. After the files have loaded, go to board, write all profiles to board. Now all the factory profiles have been loaded.
Disconnect the EC1 and test.
