Touch controller spinning/spiraling out from real hand..

Every once in a while, maybe every 5-10 minutes or so, even when in view of both cameras, I've noticed one of my hands, usually the left hand, but sometimes the right too, will start spinning/vibrating a bit, which gets worse over the next couple seconds, until the virtual hand/controller is violently spiraling around where my real hand is positioned. Then, after another couple seconds, it pops back to normal and stops, till it happens again a little later.

At first I noticed it in Medium, cause I spent a few hours in that, but I just noticed it in Home too, so now I know it happens across everything. ๐Ÿ˜ž

Hi, are there any news regarding this problem?
Yesterday I got my third sensor, and since then Iยดve got this issue. Hand is spinning in circles for about one or two seconds, then snaps back to itยดs position.


EDIT: Iยดm sorry, I did not realized that this thread has more than one site, so I did not read the whole thread.
Iยดm happy that this will be fixed soon.

I have a theory about the glitching hands with touch. Looking at the Ifix it tear down the gyro that touch is using is an mpu 6500. Now when moving your hands to fast the leds smear and the controller falls back on imu data for tracking, the problem with doing this is the mpu6500 gyro chip they are using. I fly rc quad copters (drones) and have one of these gyro's in my flight controller and its crap. Any vibrations cause it to freak out and make my quad twitch, the problem was solved by softmounting my flight controller so vibrations from the quad wont interfere with the imu. Its such a problem with these imu's I will not buy a fc with one in the future. I wished they would of used a different gyro.

The sensor uses a shutter and the IR lights flicker in synch with the shutter so there should be very little smear.

So I don't think I've got any major updates yet, tho the minor patch number does seem to change every now and then..
Just figured I'd mention that I saw the spiraling hand issue pop up again yesterday. I assume the real fix hasn't come out yet. heh

I'm following this thread as my left controller goes bananas constantly. Seems like this isn't fixed still? this thread is a few years old. i'm not sure what's going on. I keep seeing someone say 'share your log' i'm not sure how i'd do that because this happens constantly as i was saying. Using Medium and my left controller mostly flips out every few seconds. i've tried adjusting the position of my sensors. changed the battery, still FLIPS the F out...UGH
