The principle of the camera stabilization using brushless direct drive motors



In fact, gimbal based on BLDC motors is very similar to regular gimbal based on hobby servo. The main difference - each axis of rotation passes through the center of gravity (CG) of the "Camera + frame" system and rigidly connected to the BLDC motor. The absence of gear - a fundamental point that lets you use the inertia of the system is not to harm, but for good. In case of ideal balance of the camera, the rotor rotates freely without resistance and even without need of applying extra control force, which allows the camera to unleash from the disturbance from UAV frame. In addition, there is no backlash inherent gears or belts.
BLDC motor works not in its usual mode, but as an DC-electromagnet generating high torque to hold camera. Therefore it is NECESSARY to rewind motor with thinner wire to increase its resistance and torque. Recommendations for winding motors of different sizes are collected in section Electronic / Motors.

To control the motors, a special controller was designed. It receives information from gyroscopes and accelerometers mounted on the camera platform. A standard IMU algorithm is used to define camera inclination angles. With the remote control, operator sets desired tilt angle. PID-controller calculates the amount of compensation and send command to the power unit, which controls the current in the windings and thus the direction of the vector of magnetic field in the stator. Magnetic field moves the rotor to the right position.

Due to using IMU, mechanical part of the system is a very simple. There is no need in complex and expensive high-definition encoders for each axis. Just mount tiny IMU board on the camera platform, connect wires to controller and motors and all done!

It will give impressive quality of stabilization compared to regular servos.


Basic requirements for the mechanical design of gimbal frame:

The possibility of precise balancing on three axes. The better the balance, the lower the current need for stabilization.
Mechanical rigidity of bearing elements to prevent resonances from working propellers in flight
Minimizing friction in the joints. The better the gimbal axis are unleashed from UAV camera platform, the less effort is required from the engine to stabilize
Elimination of vibrations from the main UAV frame. The vibrations have a negative impact on the quality of the video. But another negative effect in this system is that vibration will lead to self-excitation of the closed-loop controller.

It will be two version of the controller.
Price for the controller for the brushless gimbal will be about 150USD-230USD
Just come back from my lab, the result are amazing,
1the controller we going to offer will be based on Simple BGC but easier to use, USB intergrated mature product,
2 assistant software will be easy to install to your computer like NAZA,
3 the gimbal will adapt most of the camera under 200g with adjustable CG function, we will start pre-order very soon, please follow us on fpvmodel.com

Dibs on one from the first batch!
Jan 07, 2013, 05:23 PM
Any ballpark on pricing yet?

Very interesting!

Will you also scale it down for a GoPro? To be lighter and more compact?

Cheers.

It will be two version of the controller.for smaller gimbal( gopro, smart camera) and for big gimbal( Cannon 5D level)
Price for the controller for the brushless gimbal will be about 150USD-230USD only!!

I'll be surprised if its not more. Most gimbals in this range run $500-1000+

Because I'm on a tight budget, If the whole system over 400, I may choose Ecilop or something like that...

Do you have a rough idea how much the larger version will weigh?
