Hi there everyone!I'm really quite new to this, all of this. In fact, this is my first post. I first became interested in this project entirely by chance; I happened upon it while looking for small…Continue
If you have access to a linux box or cygwin environment on windows you can use exiftool to geotag the images with great results. I posted a bunch of different how-to for doing this here: http://dronemapper.com/faq
There is a great…"
"I bumped into the same GPS time stamp issue which is mentioned in this topic. What I can deduct from the logs is that:
The time stamp in the *.log files are in ms, UTC after midnight. This time is send along with the GPS signal, calculated based on…"
"@Luke, Again, can't seem to reply to the post below - The Skywalker tail kept breaking! I just found it very flimsy. If I accidentally knocked it on anything it would just break. I'm talking about the Horizontal Stab, not the actual tail…"
"@ Richard, Re. the weight, Ok that's not so bad then. Re.the cameras, as long as the fuesalage doesn't block the field of view, that's a good solution. Perhaps the camera could be offset mounted so it hangs below the belly…"
"@Luke, Replying to your below post (as i cant seem to reply to it directly.)
In my opinion there are no real weight issues with using the FY21AP to stabilize the camera, as the entire thing only weights 22 grams, and uses minimal power.…"
"Hi Richard, sorry about that, didn't look close enough. I agree with James, it would be a shame to put in a separate device just to stabilise a gymbal, especially given the weight issues which now seem to be arising. Better to wait till its…"
"Hi Luke, It is working in both Axis in the Video I posted, maybe its just not very clear. But I am not using the Arduplane code to stabilize the camera Gimbal, I am using another stabilizer called an FY21AP. I've been told that this…"
"@ James and Richard, I had another look at the video, isn't it working in the roll axis and not the pitch axis? I thought it was the other way around? Or can you just pick one axis? As most aircraft can be made stable in the pitch axis with…"
"Posting Results: I had no luck with the Above! I am instead going to use my FY21AP unit to stabilize the Camera gimbal. Until the Arduplane code has it built in!
Here it is in action...
"Hi James, Cheers for your help thus far, It has been very useful, and i think have just enough info to get cracking!
Thought i'd mention that you can configure APM 2 for Pitch and Roll stabilization, as mentioned above, by following…"
"sorry for my syntax..
I ment, that, yes, you need as vertical as possible photos for easier post prosessing and results. But gimbal stabilization for 1,2 or 3 axis is only avalable for copters, Arduplane users have to wait a little…"

Hi Guys, as a Newbie I'm finding this thread extremely interesting, if not confusing, due to the plethora of acronyms. James could you explain further ?
1. Take a series of photographs facing vertically down from the…"
