From what I've seen on the webs, it looks pretty plug and play and the cost isn't too too bad. It took about a month to get here from pre-order. So, we'll see how it goes once I get some time after the big move to the west coast. Cheers!
@Code: Where'd you source the Alexmos gimbal set up?
One of my drones has a mangled nose anyway.. I'm going to try this tonight. I'm going to chop the nose, relocate the camera ribbon and pass it down the center of the bottom plate, extend the battery wires, pass them both through an opening in a baby bottle nipple (through some small aluminum pipe?), craft something to hold the battery and camera together, and something to mount the nipple ring to the base of the drone ... and see how it works. The geometry of the battery vertically should allow the transducers to echo to the ground, and not obstruct the bottom cam while hovering either... I agree that the physics of it all in motion may not allow the pendulum-ness to work as well as an active gimbal does... but, the added weight in implementing my idea might be less than 50 grams.. and totally passive, and possibly even more stable of a craft.. I would, however, not be able to land as usual without some other thought on how to handle it.. and the battery isn't very aerodynamic either.. might need to put a wedge on itCode74 wrote:Jayson.... In theory you're allowing gravity to adjust as a gimbal which isn't far off logically speaking. However when you add wind, speed of the quad, etc physics kicks in and gravity is semi lost in control. With a ar, due to weight limitations alone you're pretty stuck at stock for the best footage smoothness wise.
