The answer was referring to a question whether the mount can turn 90 degrees and take nadir shots. It should be able to go up to at least 60 degrees. All of these steadicam frames (ecilop Glyder 600 etc...) do not offer nadir shots which translates to 90 degrees tilt.

Guess I misunderstood the question and the answer. I thought that we can set the tilt angle only before takeoff.
So you're saying that it offers a manual tilt control with certain degree ? That'd be good news.

Fu?

the rumor is true, the gimbal will have a servo slot that makes it possible to control the camear tray 's angle ,so it's possible to point the camear vertical to the ground by a channel.
the part is still in construction ,so the camera tilt upgrade kit will be available after Glyder 600.
a load test was made too, the total payload is 1.4kg including battery.
a test video will show soon.
thanks
Fu

s6100021, I guess you are right. If the frame parts are hard to find / get or (for me) too expensive, then I will be concerned too if the frame broke.

Fu, I am still waiting for you to respond back to my email. It's already been 3 days without answer.

Fu, What is the recommended battery size, 3s or 4s and how many Mah.
What will be the flying time with each battery.

Give some details about the motors you plan on mounting on the frame. The typical equation of flight time goes something like this.

Battery Capacity divided by Total consumption of the Multirotor multiplied by 0.6 to end up with minutes.

So given the fact I have a quad that hovers at a 20A running on a 5A battery the equation will go something like this

5 divided by 20 = 0.25
0.25x0.6= 15 minutes.

However you need to subtract the 20% of the total battery capacity prior doing this equation in order have a healthy battery cycle and good long life battery status

I use 5000mah 4S in my setup, it should be enough for most applications
thanks

I asked earlier if it can support a X8 config? if so can you offer a X8 kit option, Just the extra hardware? Ill hit the buy button if you do, I really want the redundancy a X8 offers( I fly APM2 and Cirus Pro FC's)

Cheers!

there is no X8 config at present ,and if you use X8, NAZA should not be the choice as a main controller.
under current conditions , quadcopter should be suitable for most applications

X8 will be the next step, extensive tests must be done before releasing it.
thanks

one email vanished without reason, I got the second one though

many guys are asking the gyro and servos,
and we will put it on the site in next week.
so it will save your time to find suitable gyros
thanks

Fu,

It would be nice to offer a couple of solutions both expensive and cheap. To be honest not many people will go for expensive gyros. Also will your design need a ubec for the receiver servos gyros? I was planning on using the flight battery to do that... On the other hand I guess using a 4s Battery will require a second battery for AV TX since not many (atleast not mine) are running on 4s. Can you post some ideas how to power things on the Glyder 600?
