Am I wrong ?
Who needs 360 on tilt (or any other axis) for AP/AV? Except those who watched too many DJI promo vids where the Zenmuse rotates 360 at something like 5Hz (and in those many S800 crash vids of course). Or do you plan to film your own copter? I was under the impression AP/AV gimbals are supposed to record things on the ground where the customer's asset is...

From the picture it doesn't even look like it could tilt 90 degrees down which many people film pointing straight down. It could just be an optical illusion from the angle the picture was taken at. Also it would need to go a tad more that 90 degrees for it to stabilize a facing down shot too.

To me it looks like it could point straight down, considering the length of the fork arm (the black thing) and the visible gap in the shown position. Even if it won't, it will be trivial for the designer to make longer arms.

I agree but it's not a big deal to make it possible. So why not make it ? At least for the tilt, 90 down could be useful....

You're right! with GoPro2 can't perform 360 tilt...
it's only a prototype
Need to increase lenght and think a way to adjust roll balance with different weighted motor...

I'll don't sell it but I can share plans if someone think to improve it and share improved plans to everybody...my weekend is ended and I have not more time until friday

Yes, 90 is not a big deal and it should be done. If you want to use 360 then better think of how to wire the camera (or use one that has WiFi). Most people will use wires though for video out and shutter trigger.

Absolutely.
I'm with you on that point.
360 was a bad approximation (maybe due to my poor English).
But I had in mind 90 down tilt.

So here the plans: http://www.diygimbals.com/steadygo-brushless-gimbal/


I think we all deserve a little more information from the seller ...
Will be avalaible a kit with only controller and motors?
What size will be the motors?
Why the controller for GoPro version may not work well for larger motors?

The controller can handle limited currents which might not be enough to move the mass of larger cameras like DSLRs. There will be different boards that will handle more Amps (just like the ESCs do).
One key factor of this new technology is camera gimbal/balancing, your gimbal must be able to provide adjusting options in order to completely balance out every axis once camera installed.
Alexmos board+sensor results are beyond any expectations so far, this is just the beginning. A third axis board (pan) is in the works right now.
Waiting the controller to arrive in here to test in small cameras.
