Hi everyone.

I would like to share my latest 7kg multicopter design with the DIY drones community.

Having designed and operated fixed wing, helicopter and multicopter camera systems for a number of years now I have learned what is important, at least to my operation, namely low vibration, endurance and ease of use.

The first two are…

Hi Vince,
I'm a tinkerer and an inventor myself and I noticed your servo zoom mount for your NEX camera. I was going to make one up myself but I felt I would ask if you would share. On that note I liked your 2 axis gimbal also! I wasn't considering printing one myself , but yours looked very light. Do you share your models ? I would certainly give you credit.
