Dudes, think about what this means to all of us.this is why I posted here and another to make sure the "smart" folks saw it.. I got a request and I filled it out and thought I would pass it on to perceived "friends" of this hobby..

starting a new thread is ok , but one never knows who will see it. If it's not important to you don't fill the thread with responses.. let it go and sign the petition if it is. enough said..

Can anyone help? Can someone give a quick PARTS LIST for a brushless gimbal? And a basic idea on what I would have to do to make it (as far as the electronics)

The controller is the one part that most certainly will be purchased from a shop. This will consist of both the gimbal controller and an IMU suite to be mounted at the camera position (as I understand things...someone please clarify if needed). You will then have the option of building your own gimbal and supplying your own motors, or to purchase a complete system (controller w/gimbal and/or motors).

Reread the first post in this thread.

I have started a new thread on this topic, with a news story about the ban that is certainly coming.

csg shop from Latvia hurried up and shipped its first units
L6205PD drivers,


seems like they assemble IMU and FTDI too, (judging from PCB color scheme)

seems pinout on IMU is labeled wrong, it doesn't work, sda and scl seem to be switched,
as i tested them with multimeter over mpu6050 chip itself...

will investigate it some more.

edit: yup, now it works in gui...
label on IMU PCB is wrong.

Nice to know...Anyone else have a report from the last batch at CSG I assume they all have this same issue? There had to be 50 or more sold, funny that no one responded to this yet

A friend of mine received his controller today (from CSG), I called him to send me a pic of his stuff. I'll post it as soon as I receive it.


Edit: looks like it's also inverted (scl/sda). From the same batch, though, so not really surprising.
I wonder if the tx/rx is inverted too.. I don't know, maybe tx should plug to rx and rx to tx..

Nice catch I may receive mine tomorrow.

Edit 2: I checked regarding tx-rx, it seems to be ok

Thanks Tom, that looks pretty good! Is the tuning pretty straight forward?

BTW, I thought my work bench was cluttered, you have me beat.

can you do a longer Video with your camera mounted to a tripod for steady shot.
show more of what's going on the tuning software. And gentle move the gimbal.
I want to drool some more till I get my hands on one of that board.
