Not only kill a thread but piss off other vendors who cling on to their manners like gentlemen holding capes across muddy oceans so that young and inexperienced foreign market support reps in China may post more details about their products for us all.

So do you want to delete those watermarked photos too while the supplier prepares of list of where to by locations at the top of this thread?

I really hope it is only a coincidence that it looks exactly the same as the patented Ecilop platform from Mr. Zaitsevsky:

I'm pretty sure I remember zerouav going on record about "not being in the business of making frames" when their FC was first released, in order to focus primarily on improving FLIGHT controllers instead of wasting time/money/energy/R&D into stuff that's already been rehashed millions of times.

Guys, pay attention to the Ecilop policy:
If you copy this principle of camera stabilization, each technical or marketing text related to your product(s) must mention the name of the technology's author and an active link to Ecilop.tv (Camera rotation control by Aleksey Zaitsevsky, Ecilop.tv ).

You have copied 13/14:
The key advantages of Ecilop drones compared to other commercial light multi-copters (the list was compiled at the end of 2011):
1. The use of an onboard battery as a counterweight for the camera unit enhances the stabilization effect.
2. The use of a counterweight enables the implementation of a compact, lightweight and rigid rotation mechanism.
3. The relocation of the battery to the stabilized platform produces a favorable effect on the maneuverability of the drone.
4. Absence of a hard connection with the servo-unit prevents camera jerks and jitter.
5. Adjustable fixtures make it possible to easily obtain accurate balancing of the camera gimbal in three dimensions.
6. Precise balancing of the camera mount makes it possible to use lightweight and fast servo-units.
7. Electronic gyroscopes are installed on the stabilizable part of the camera mount and prevent swaying.
8. Soft shock absorbers suppresses vibrations in a wide range of frequencies.
9. Shock absorbers are installed on the same level with rotation axis, which prevents camera swaying during maneuvering.
10. Onboard electronics is installed on the platform with shock absorbers. The increased weight of the platform makes it more stable.
11. Autopilot accelerometers are better protected from vibrations and therefore produce more accurate results.
12. The matching of the vertical center of mass of the drone with the rotor rotation plane decreases drone swaying during maneuvering.
13. The leaning of rotor blades towards of the drone's center improves stability and widens the camera's viewing angle.
14. The camera is fastened using a lens clamp. This type of fixture is more reliable, compact and weighs less than an underlying platform.

Translation of the patent application

Steadicam is invented by Garrett Brown and it has been registered by camera manufacturer Tiffen, even Iphone has "isteadi" inside. The entire ZERO-STEADI470 system is especially designed for overcoming the difficulties in using Steadicam and helps users a lot, which makes it more convenient for customers to use the Steadicam.What's more, the ZERO flight controller invented by Zero UAV not only supports the integration of ZERO-STEADI470 system, but also supports the ECILOP frame, users can saperately perchase YS-X6 Steadi470 version to control the frame of Steadicam structure. Not mention that ZERO-STEADI470 system is not cheaper than ECILOP, it's fair.

The key advantages of Ecilop drones compared to other commercial light multi-copters (the list was compiled at the end of 2011):

1. Autopilot accelerometers is placed in a built-in damper of IMU, there is nothing doing with a frame. Maybe you should say: configuration an autopilot to aircraft is your patent too?

2. The leaning of rotor blades..? Please carefully check ZERO-STEADI470 picture and physical, there have no any leaning of the motors. Probably you should go to check S800 frame's...

3. Precise balancing..? Please carefully check the standard Steadicam principle or Z15 of DJI. Does it say ECILOPS copied one kind of stabilization which come from a center of gravity and appropriate to yourself as a patent?


Does your frame patent not allow other people to sell controller or other system?

Ok, remove springs from your ZERO-STEADI and try to use it with a usual servo-drive .
First patented invention of Garrett Brown is a human body supported camera mount US4017168, year 1977, brand "Steadicam" (do you have a human body on your frame?). Couter-balanced system was invented long before "Steadi" (see the picture).

It is not about "Steadicam", it is about camera rotation control with combination of springs and gyro. But you have copied much more.
