Gimbal GCU connection


At first I just want basically the following:

1. Orientation loced Mode and FPV Mode.
2. TILT axis rotation control.

I donīt need shutter sw.

Is it possible to simply connect only two channels from Tx to GCU? (two 3-position switches)

(I have received my Z15 and want to test it this weekend!)

Yes it is, you just connect the channels you want to have, the others will be at a "default". Today I mounted the Z15 on a carbon hexa and forgot to connect it to the receiver, works also. The cam stays in fpv-mode and the tilt-axis is always pointing at the horizon.

Zenmuse on Carbon Hexa (3 min 0 sec)

Hello. Am I correct that I wouldn't be able to use the Z15 on a WK-M octo configuration, since it's a requirement that it will be driven from WKM's gimbal outputs?

Thanks!

that is correct and is the reason the s800 is a hexa

Not, it's not correct, Z15 connects WKM through Can-bus, it will not use any of WKM 's gimbal output.

The Z15 will work on a octo WKM... as said it is running on Can-bus and you control the gimbal with some more channels on your RX....

thanks for the correction, piccolo and rsun. i thought that's why they made the s800 as a hexa instead of octo

Thank you! I already bought a WK-M but wanted it to be on an octo config. Putting it in a DW frame. I hope this really is the end in my search for the perfect gimbal.

Which EU store do you recommend to buy Zenmuse and how long do you wait for it?
