Anyway.....

Alexsey, are you planning to sell anything with stabilized pan function? I am noticing that, like most quads the Ecilop Easy has a tendency to climb when you apply rudder to pan the camera. I would like to set up a gimbal that has the ability to pan independently of the aircraft for a two man operation.

I just sold my DJI F550/ ASKMAN gimbal combo in favor of the ecilop, so am looking for a second machine that I can set up like this. Hoping you can provide it!

Dan
word "inertial" is frequently used for an electronic stabilization systems.
purpose of my slogan is to mark differences.
I'll think about, thank you

I know what I'll do during next two months and it will be two-axis version. We are using trainer/student system to control it by two.

Folks, forget all pricey (and bad anyway) servo-driven gimbals. Just grab one of those new Sony "balanced steadyshot" camcorders. Mounted on an Ecilop it is probably the most you can get.

Here is a sample (not mine) from a MK machine:

The stabilization is impressive, but the overall quality of the image is not because its a consumer level camcorder with a tiny sensor. Compare this with a GH2 or NEX5n for example.

For many markets/clients certain features are irrelevant and make economically no sense. Otherwise we'd all shoot with a RED...

Sony HXR-NX30U - USD 2500, 0.6 kg. Soon it will be possible to use it on Ecilop Easy.

I totally support you here
no need to add weight and complexity of landing gear
a good setup quad doesnt climb when paning : )

two separate gyros are necessary.

OK, my Ecilop kit is on my workbench too. I have used on my old quadcopter four of this motor http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=12922 together with APC 10x4.7 propellers. Do you think it is enough for the Ecilop with gopro? As I read on HK the trust is 800g for each, so overall max trust should be 3200g. It seems to be much more than needed for me with 5000mAh batterypack. Right?
At least for a testing purposes.

Hi!

Are anyone using WKM and turnigy mems gyros on this thing?
Can you tell me what gain settings you use?
And how to connect it together?
I see that there are three servoplugs on this gyro.

Blue to WKM
White to receiver
Yellow to servo
Manual:
Use the "normal" mode for gyroscopes. Start with the maximum reaction value. If the servo gear starts vibrating, reduce the gyroscope reaction value. Push the battery with a finger: if it swings, increase the gyroscope gain value.

It will be better to have a thrust as a double weigh.
