Can I add to this questions list?

1. If connected to the FC will it be powered by the FC? If not powered by the FC I assume it will need its own power source (what should it be)

2. With the right TX/RX will the gimbal be able to be panned/tilt from the TX?

Sorry for the newbie questions : )

2. Does it have a PC board that control the motors directly? No need for speed controllers? - PC board, designed by Alex Moss from Russia which has a very good reputation so far
3. Does it also have a processor that includes gyro's and accelerometers? I need more info on what is included? - Yes, that is what is on the board from Alex Moss

I hope this helps

Wind_of_Change,

Do you have a link to one of your 3D videos? It sounds quite interesting.

Oztravels,

I assume that you meant to say GC (or Gimbal Controller) not FC (Flight Controller). There is no way you want to connect the YUN-I to your FC for power. The assumption is that the YUN-I GC will connect to the flight pack directly or through a separate regulator.

Let me stress that I haven't seen one yet, but from the wiring diagram I saw posted somewhere, I could suggest the following;

1. It is independently powered but i cant remember the voltage range sorry. You can connect to your FC for stabilisation if you want to, but there is no need and I am anticipating that will reduce the performance over the purpose design control board.
2. There is no pan as this is a 2 axis gimbal. The wiring diagram did show a channel feed from your RX and I assume this is for tilt control as there is no other need for a single channel input.

I hope this helps

Oztravels,
You can check out my YouTube channel here:

BIRD'S EYE VIDEOS

I just started filming in 3D a few months ago, and have enough killer footage for several films, but haven't edited any because I'm still trying to get through a terabyte of shots from the previous months 2D work. But check it out and subscribe so you can be notified when the 3D stuff goes online in a month or so. Some of the 3D stuff I've got is stunning.

I can't wait to get a DDG gimbal. It's gonna make all the difference in my multi-rotor work.

Wind_of_Change,

Thanks, I remember you now from the FPV forums. Very nice stuff!

LucioleMC30,

It can't hurt to wait, especially if you have reservations. I am hoping to see more information and specs on the YUN-I soon.

I'm just praying I didn't make a huge mistake by ordering because I know the Alexmos Viacopter version will be available in a month or so, and that one will work for sure.

I'm a bit disappointed they didn't post more videos like we asked.

I'm hoping the beta testers who get the finished product and test it will be verbal about their experience. Maybe that'll happen soon enough that I can cancel the order if FPV Model fails to deliver what they have promised.

If you're a beta tester and the horizon tilt just doesn't work, please, for the love of FPV, post your experience so the rest of us don't get ripped off.

I would be patient, I saw another guys post with similar product that he solved horizon tilt just by reducing gains, I would not assume there is a problem.
