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

Headtracking without using your Transmitter

I was recently asked if I could sort a head tracking system out that didn't use your Tx for sending the  control signals to the  gimbal servos.

I have the prototype working well so as soon as I have time I will post details and a video of the system in case anybody is interested.

I have the system working....

This set up is too industrial for modelling use,( it needed to be made like this for the application, but could be substantailly miniaturised), but basically it uses Fatshark for the video and Frsky for the Gimbal control .

I'll post a wiring diag as soon as I have some time.

The unit with the  directional oblong aerial is the 2.4gHz transmitter. This sends head tracking signals from the video goggles and controls the gimbal on the other unit which has the Go Pro  mounted on it.
This unit comprises of the video transmitter (5.8gHz) and the 2.4gHz receiver along with the servos that drive the gimbal. It also has an  3.5mm stereo jack audio input, if audio, at the remote end is required, ( a separate stereo microphone is needed for this).

The Rx was modified to use standard aerials, ( the second one isn't attached on the unit in the picture.. I forgot.)

Works a treat..
