    No problem, Shao has a small stock of these to save on separate shipping fees. Just make sure he will include a controller in the order.

    Thanks

    Hi guys,
    I had a very similar problem with my worm gear/AC motor setup until recently. Jerky as hell in small movements, especially when unloaded/downwards.
    Achieved a HUGE improvement by going into the VFD settings and upping the minimum voltage values (from 0.7V to 8V) and decreasing the minimum frequency outputs to as low as possible (0.5hz from 2Hz).
    There is still a tiny bit of mechanical backlash (almost un-noticeable, even for my 250mm gear output arms) but for the most part it has been the difference between 'notchy' movements and smooth "clear-weather" flying in air sims and the feel of car tires/suspension in driving sims.
    I really hope this helps
