Thanks,

Its the AlexMos gimbal controller and some rewound 2208 motors and an MPU6050 as camera IMU.

We nicknamed it "ZenMouse".... ;)

Version for GP3, compacts and DSLR/Camcorder in the making.

Wow, this thing is incredible! DYI vs. DJI 1:0 :D
Have some pix of the ZenMouse?

I hope you have your fingers on the production - I wouldn't want to rewind motors on my own. ;)
Any thoughts on ETA, pricing and parts?

Nice one :), you gave me something to read, browsing trough the fpv community pages right now. Seems to be the new buzz in the AP indeed, be quick Jussi in the summer the goodluckbuys of this world will probably jump in and I'm sure lots of people will want this gimbal

Does it take input from a radio or external controller for the tilt override (for example).
And if Felix did design the controller, maybe some trigger meganism and timer for the shutter ?



I LIKE IT :)

I did have nice results with a couple of blue bird servo's. BMS620 I believe. Those where analog servo's and not to fast.
But, no jittering :). Just what I had in my left overs and performed quite good.
Better were a couple of futaba heli tail servo's 0.07s digitals, S9253 as I recall, don't believe they can be purchased anymore. Align (savox) DS620 are also very good and fast 0.06s.The futaba's I did use last year..
Now I'm experimenting with savox 1258TG, expensive but incredible fast.
But, savox are known to be very power hungry, no way you can feed them from the AQ and even my 5A bec did shutdown once.
A 10A bec is on its way for those servo's.

Anyway, the fastest analog servo's would be best, no digital jittering, but the next best thing are a couple of heli tail servo's up to the savox or futaba BS $200 a piece versions :)
Just what you need, if you need the absolute direct counter actions you need the fastest you can buy, for profi setup you should consider another gimbal obviously but for the occasional shoot it is a very nice gimbal.

Setup: the standard setup is sufficient for most, but if you need to finetune you can change the scales, the frequency and introduce a simple expo on the roll.
Let's hear what your specific questions are Axel


Menno,

Thanks for the details... I needed to get a starting point on what to look for!
Note to self:
- the faster the better
- don't be cheap

Thanks...

That is a very nice result, looking forward to seeing more of this gimbal.

Here's a connection diagram of the SBGC

Would it be possible to override the gimbal control with AQ's PIO function? So the cam always points at an object/point no matter how the aircraft is pointing at?
That'll be super cool and another unique feature that seperates the AQ6 from the competition. 8-)

We really need a RC channel pass through function for the AQ so the people using s.bus or Spektrum satellite can control gimbals like this without needing a second radio.
