2-Axis Brushless Camera Gimbal Plug and Play for DJI Phantom & Walkera QR X350 FPV (5 min 45 sec)

There are probably over 20 selections of gimbals out in the market, notably the expensive Dji Zenmus and Tarot gimbals. We wanted a gimbal that has a motion processing unit to stabilize our camera while in flight and ready to use out of the box. We heard good things about this unbranded gimbal, so we decide to put it to a test. We selected the FPV 2-Axis Brushless Camera Gimbal from Hobbywow.com. This selection is based on the budget price, it's stand-alone ready to use controller that can be installed on any aircraft with any light weight pocket camera or GoPro, and the GUI software SimpleBGC.

• Light weight CNC aluminum alloy structure
• Brushless motor direct drive
• With anti-vibration rubber balls
• With 2 x 2208 motors and gimbal controller sensor installed
• With motor protector which can help heat dissipation
• Weight is about 212G, total weight with GOPRO3 is about 285G.

1) Quick assembly
2) 2-Axis roll & pitch
3) Anti-vibration
4) SimpleBGC GUI
5) Compact

You may meet some problem when using the H107D, such as black screen, splash screen, lines on the screen and jammed screen.

How to deal with these problems.-Do some simple check

A:black screen

1.We have to check whether there is something wrong with the cables

Bind the quad

Adjust the TX 5.8GHz receiving frequency to 5865

If there are images on the screen, it means there is something wrong with cables

If there is no image on the screen, we have to do some further checking

We take out the back cover of the quad

2. First of all, we have to check the plugs and cables on the PCB board, whether there are loose connection or tack weld

Then we take apart the camera module to have a look

3.After we take apart the camera module, we have to check whether the module is installed in the right place

If not, when we put back the battery box, it may press on some components of the module, leading to black screen

Let’s check whether there is loose connection of the module. If it looks like this, then there is loose connection

We just need to press the module and the module gets stuck

Now check the cables and plugs on the module, whether there are tack welds or loose connection

Then check the 5.8 GHz antenna to see whether there are tack welds or loose connection

B: Flake screen

1.First we have to check whether there is black spot or other things on the camera,Use a cloth to clean it

2.Then check the 5.8 GHz antenna to...Continue Reading

1.Flying in the open area with less people.Don't fly in parks where many people are.You may seriously injure somebody.

2.Never catch the plane when flying.

3.Choose a sunny day to fly,never fly on a windy day, or you may fall into trouble with facing the plane into the wind.

4.Keep everything may be wounded away from the propeller,such as loose limbs, clothing and hair and so on.

5.Don't try a warbird for it is difficult to control for a beginner.

6.Learn many knowledge from the manual book or forum or other experienced hobbyists before you want to fly.

7.If you have some question,please try to find the answer asap to avoid impossible wounded.

8.Two RC hobbyists can’t use the same channels at the same time on the flying field,for the planes would be controlled by both transmitters and may crash.If there are other model hobbyists flying,check the channel of their remote controls!

9.An experienced friend or assistant can help you in dangerous situations.

10.Keep everything is ok before fly. Check the rc plane,your transmitter,your battery and so on.Take the necessary equipment to maintainthe aircraft with you just in case.

Wish everyone enjoy the RC hobby very well.

Some friends do not come into contact with the remote control airplane always think the rc as toys, rc aircraft is not the simple toys, it need time to study and research!
Find a responsible seller, saving little money are often the beginning of saving big money!

Treat it rigorous to lay the foundation, otherwise the crashes hurt confidence and also hurt the wallet, the even worst if wounding. In fact, it is not only dangerous sport,but also a technology and basic kind of activity need machinery knowledage and other common sense, therefore cannot imagined as simple as playing with toys!

Starting with NEW V120D02S six-channel 3D helicopter.That allows you to experience the professional-level 3D model aircraft handling feel, with the excellent features small aircraft and large aircraft. Power, remote configuration and other showed good, can achieve a variety of 3D flight.

I believe that you and me, have already seen the videos and reports of Amazon Prime Air drones delivery package. Overwhelming, my first impression is : Amazon Prime Air Drones shipping was just a hype!

I am a technician of multi-axis aircraft (same like the kind of Amazon’s Drones) and Remote Controlmodel company , analyzed from Drones and remote technical principles and simple logic , the so-called 30 minutes ‘s Drones delivery from Amazon is indeed nonsense :

1.The Safety
The Amazon " advertising" video is an eight- axle vehicle, the diameter of more than 80cm, by visual with eight motors and rotors, if such a large object out of control , or lack of electricity , or ( may be many other reasons etc here ) , sincerely speaking, this aircraft falls from the height , or hit a pedestrian or animal in flight , the possibility is huge and the consequences could be disastrous

2 .The Precise Positioning
From the video, Amazon Drones can be sent to the falt of the customer's door, perfect!But to achieve, such a precise positioning is difficult to do from a GPS technically currently , it is in a normal range of 10 meters by positioning error , then if the Drones to the roof, or the pool , or in front of the street, neighbor's house ? This make the customers to feel harvest then?

3 Delivery Range
We know that such an eight- axle vehicle , it have two lithium batteries and 8 motors in power systems , itcan fly up to 15 minutes with the most efficient...Continue Reading
