Stabilised Brushed Gimbal. Now Brushless.

We have been posting updates on this project within another thread, but have decided to give it its own thread

This is our first test flight with tilt and roll axis stabilising.
trim.BMtXfV (1 min 35 sec)


trim.eSQSis (1 min 40 sec)


More to come.

Looks really good! If your going to sell it, I hope you have a price point below what everyone else is producing! You would definitely beat the competition hands down.

Thanks cyberdog.
The gimbal will be stand alone, no FC needed. User tuneable.
Still a long way to go, but its all good fun.

Working on the Pan axis.
Pan axis. (0 min 56 sec)

Thanks Aaalie.
We've had to make a few changes to that gimbal. When we get it assembled I will post some pics.

Very interesting!

Performance similar to gimbal with brushless motors and i believe that the controller would be simpler (could you use transistor may be?)
