brushless gimbal running timelapse

Berkeley Run with brushless gimbal (5 min 49 sec)

The 1st 11 miles of running with the handheld gimbal happened. Depending on how the cables were positioned, they either caused massive problems or it worked flawlessly. The cables definitely caused wobbling & there were a few magic alignments which made it oscillate.

It took 2 hours to run 11 miles, zapping the battery entirely & probably destroying it. Heading drift was significant in either direction, after 5 minutes. There's no easy way to use a magnetic heading, unless the motors constantly spin.

In some segments, the gimbal was more stable than software could get it. The 1st 5 miles were 9 minute miles. The last 5 miles were a lot slower because of record chafing.
