Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Very simple and cheap gyro for cameras...

I was just googling and I found something that is really really cool.

http://www.dunehaven.com/gs1.htm

Its a standard RC servo that has a built in gyro, so the output moves as a normal servo does, but if the body of the servo moves, it compensates to keep the output facing the same way at all times. They can also work without any data, just power, so you could make a passive gyro head that would stabilise the camera with no extra radio toys. This is the perfect solution to the wonky horizon I experienced today as the quad was up at an angle to compensate for the wind. All I would have to do is mount the camera directly to the horn so the servo rolled the camera about its axis, then put it on the bottom as normal. The servo would automatically keep the camera level, and if I wanted to use the second Dx6 and a park fly receiver, I could control it too. Three of these servos would give you a full pan tilt roll gyro stabilised camera head.

They are 70 dollars plus 15 shipping, so about 60 quid per axis. Personally, I think thats a bargain considering theres no extra electronics or work to be done.


Will buy one at some point and see how it performs.

Nice find but doesn't the Naza have gimble servo out puts which means it does exactly the same thing but with normal (metal gear) servos using the advanced electronics of the Naza  ~~

Well you didn't let the grass grow under your feet on that one, now you can design a gimble that does both axis  ~~

Or just buy one of these in this post  ~~

Unmannedtech does one for 29 quid, without servos. As it happens, I have bought literally hundreds of Hitec HS654MG servos, over 350 so far, Ive got a few spares, so thats not a problem.

Well if you already have servos and good ones to then their is no point ordering from China, looking forward to seeing your new gimble very soon then  :bravo:
