Grouse House Technologies EZ-Gimbal With A Twist

Presenting the EZ-Gimbal With A Twist. You can now rotate your camera into a portrait orientation to enable portrait photography and panoramas.  Due to the unique three axis balance adjustment system of the EZ-Gimbal, the rotation by 90 degrees requires NO rebalancing.  You can alternate between landscape and portrait orientations without touching the cameras balance position. The pitch…See More

Antenna tracker for the MultiWii platform using MW V2.1 protocol.

Posted on November 29, 2012 at 8:10am 43 Comments

Just spent a couple of hours getting my head around the MultiWii V2.1 serial protocol.  This involved looking at EOSBandi's MW-WinGUI Visual Studio c# code and adapting the essential bits I need to a simple test VB 2010 app.  The app sends the commands to get the GPS bearing and distance to home as well as the…
