Hopefully tomorrow we will get the boards installed for tilt and roll.

Here is a short video from today.

Few pics of the workshop rig. Materials and design may change.

Gimbal is amazing! Can't wait to see the finished product (and possibly buy one )

Are you using brushless motors opposed to servos?

Photohigher has a couple designs on their site with a brushless motor-based gimbal opposed to servos.

Hi Ferdinand. If we get that far I would love to see this gimbal hanging off your X16.

Thanks Irv.
Sorry, we hope to have some idea by the end of the week, if testing on tilt and roll goes well.

Big thanks Todiolo. That's all the work of my mate. I will pass on your comments

Actually I did have my first lesson on a lathe today and I made the end cap on the top tube and one of the bar couplers. I'm hooked, that machining is very therapeutic.
