CLD GoPro 3-Axis Camera Mount Gimbal

I finally finished the GoPro Gimbal Camera Mount, very strong and compact. It uses 3 mini servos and since the GoPro is light weight it doesn't need any gears, servos provide enought travel for most of the applications out there. The servos that I'm using are mini 9grams servos from hobby king. I will have all the specs, prices now available on my website.

After taking this video, I found out that my AA battery pack used for the servos was discharged making the servos jitter

the gears aren't used to support the weight but to give it smoother non jittery movement and so it could move past the servo limits

cool mount though, should be nice on smaller quads

The gears provide a smoother travel, on my mount The Pan servo limits the travel to the servo specs adding a servo stretcher or digital servo could resolve this, I decided not to add a gear system on the pan servo because it will make the mount larger in the top and more expensive. The Tilt and Roll servos have enought travel for most of the application I have seen. I'm trying to keep this mount inexpensive.

Is always a good idea to use fresh batteries, I used discharged batteries for the servos and that's why you see them jitter a little.

Here is another video using good batteries and a FY20A stabilizer
