This morning, there was a layer of ense fog over my village, so I decided to fly over it using some free clear patches in that fog.

Later, when I was looking the on-board captured video, was happy!



And a video:

2 axis Brushless Gimbal-ver.2

Posted by ultralajt on October 7, 2013 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I build another gimbal, again from 2 mm thick aircraft grade plywood. I reinforce the corners of elements for greater stiffnes, encase the electronic, battery and install  DVD writer anti vibration inserts.

I already made some test flights yesterday evening, but I was not satisfied with electronic component.. wirinf between sensors and controll board became very stiff on cold air and starts to mess with stabilization.  I need to replace these stiff wires with a softer ASAP!




I made 3 slots for the sensor plate, so I can instantly change the camera attitude. It can aim level to horizont, 25° and 59° bellow the horizont, without use of spare RC transmitter channel.

First test:
