Canon 5DS roll gimbal issues

I know this is a drones forum, I have drones but this is for my full sized aircraft. I built a roll gimbal to do aerial mapping for projects like pipelines, rivers, roads etc.  Aircraft - Pipistrel Virus SWGimbal controller - Phobotic Centrepiece HV.  Motor - BGM 5208-200Camera - Canon 5ds - Sigma 50mmThe gimbal works great when it's not in the airplane, but once then engine starts it looses it's position and cannot calibrate to get back to zero.  Can someone please advise on what to do next?…See More

I'd like to discuss ground control points for UAV mapping. I'm looking at improving the accuracy of my mapping to -1m accuracy. The most affordable unit I have been able to find is the Bad Elf Surveyor gps unit available for $600 and have -1M accuracy.  What are people using to obtain their GCP's?  See More

Thomas J Coyle III replied to Darryl Zubot's discussion Pixhawk i2c not working
"@Darryl, I had to apply the same solution to a Pixhawk where the I2C bus would not startup. Resetting all the parameters to the default values did the trick. Then you can reload your saved parameter file to get going again. Regards, TCIII AVD"

"Yes I got it to finally work after resetting all perimeters for the pixhawk in mission planner. This seemed to be the only way to fix it, tired everything that 3dr recommended."

Pixhawk i2c not working

I'm having difficulties getting anything to work out of my i2c port. I talked to tech at 3d robotics and did a bunch of tests, we were unable to figure out the failure. I cannot get anything working from this connection on the board. Everything else works fine, my airspeed, external MAG, LED all do not work. The GPS works but not the MAG. I'm running latest firmware with mission planner. I checked voltage from the port and am getting correct 5v and 3.3v from the wires but for some reason I am…See More
