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

DJI S800 and Zenmuse My thoughts

Well thanks to Dave from the ArduForum I';ve got the Octo on rails. It';s fully locked in and just cannot get any better now.
But whislt waiting for batteries to charge I had a play with the DJI S800 with the Zenmuse Gimbal.

Ok the S800 is a really nice machine but I';ve got something that flys just as well and looks just as good for a third of the price.

But that Zenmuse gimbal.... You';ve got to see it in the flesh to really understand just how good it is. It';s silky smooth, really well thought out and the performance is untrue ! I tried like hell to get a wobble on the camera but failed (repeatedly)

Perhaps you should expect that from a £2500 gimbal but is it value for money - Er NO. Its well overpriced, realistically its about £900 of kit, But is it worth £2500 - Hell yes, its overpriced but its by far the best gimbal I';ve ever seen and for that worth every penny.

When powered down the Gimbal is all floppy, it turns in all 3 axis without any resistance, cant even feel the bearings turning. Power it up and the direct drive kicks in. Everything goes solid. Now there';s no motors as such. Just a magnetic field somehow acting on a bell to create movement, its really quite spooky, I was expecting at least a stepper motor but no - there';s not even any gears !

Truly Stunning and worth a real close look for anyone that is serious about photography. - The downside is you need a Wookong to drive the gimbal even though it has its own 3 axis IMU.

There is a video on the forum that was made by Martin from BYOD with exactly the same setup and I haven';t seen video as solid as his was on any copter it has to be a market leader at the moment  ~~

So when you getting one Mark  :rolleyes:
