Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

3D Printed GoPro Gimbal

I';ve been looking for a decent Gimbal to mount my GoPro Hero 3 (Silver Edition). After a bit of searching I couldn';t really find anything I fancied, so I proceeded to design my own in Solidworks, then printed the parts out on our 3D Printer at work (HP Designjet). The results are pretty good. It does look very heavy, but the good thing about 3D printing is that you can ';honeycomb'; the internals of the parts to save material, which in this case is ABS, which in turn also saves weight. I';ve used proper roller bearings on both pitch and roll axis';, Turnigy 9g Micro servo';s and some welding rod to make the control rods. all in all it weighs approx. 200 grams, which in fairness is probably quite heavy, but I';ve already got MKII in mind and can strip a lot of weight off the next version, watch this space.

Here';s a clip of first test:

Flight test to follow

Couple of Piccies here too:

I';ve only just joined the forum today, so hi to everyone :-)  I';ve only been messing with Quadcopters for 4 months or so.  What an amazingly addictive hobby :-) loving it.



Hi Parky and welcome to the forum that';s a nice looking gimble you have designed there  :bravo:
your links dont work,  :rolleyes: you can upload pictures directly to the forum  ~~


I like the look of the gimbal, nice piece of work, so i';m hoping you fix the link pics or upload on here so I can get a better closeup.
