This is just so cool Maybe I should just put a dozen of every part I make in a box, and call it the AGL erector set

Rest assured that Hansen has already infected my brain with this idea, so I'll be looking into it myself. I've got some ideas that might work out better, so I'll investigate those options before committing to any gimbal kit. Ordering materials almost as I type...

Cheers,
Rusty

Man, this when I wish I was still in school and had access to machine shop equipment. Very well done! Would you consider selling the parts that required lathing? I think I could handle the rest.

I like it because it's seems to be a cross between a Cinestar and Andrey's gimbal - both quality options.

What servos are you using? And what pots are those? Gear reduction ratio?

Think that covers my questions..

I am trying to convince Rusty to make the parts requiring the lathe. If some one wants to make one before there is any parts available I can do the lathe parts.

Exactly.

>>What servos are you using? And what pots are those?<<

I am ordering a few different servos from Servo City. They do modified Hitec servo by converting it to continuous rotation and leave the pot hanging on the outside of the case. I just solder the wires to the external pot.

Andrey is modifying MKS BLS950 servos for the external pots.

>>Gear reduction ratio?<<

The interesting part about this setup is that you can use pretty much any gear ratio you want. I am starting with Andrey's tried and true setup of 90 tooth on the big side and 32 tooth on the servo side. That would give me 2.8 to 1. However you can go a higher ratio if you want.

Very nice work,

I have been playing around a bit with the tube leg plates myself lately. Lots of mounting options

Have you tossed it on the scale yet?

I get 535 grams without servos so far. A bit hefty but it is large and stiff enough for a DSLR. I am looking to try another one with the 12mm tubes and see if I can bring the weight down.

I really like those boom blocks from Quadframe also. Some one can definitely use those blocks. They just have to cut the plates to fit. I want to build a 12mm tube gimbal. I am debating if I should use the 12mm blocks from Rusty or Quadframe. The ones from Quadframe are a little narrower.
