An interesting brushless gimbal not designed for drones. It seems the brushless gimbal technology that has become so popular for drones is now expanding its reach to the action sports market. Prototypes seem to have a nice fit and finish.

After complete several rounds of quadcopter assembly [ trying out various frames and motors ], I have listed some accessories and connectors which I personally found useful and will recommend them to be in your inventory if you are building your own quad/hex/octo copter.…Continue
I just wanted to show off what I've been working on lately for the techpod. Is a mechanism to at automatic doors to the camera bay of the techpod. This will allow people to mount a camera in the belly of the techpod and gather unobstructed vertical photos and still keep the camera protected during landings…Continue
In a previous post on diydrones I showed how to make a mesh model for visualization or games from a landscape surveyed by a drone. That workflow started off with the set of bare 2D images and used VisualSfM and CMPMVS to generate the point cloud and…Continue

This is a very dark night (no moon, full cloud coverage), so I figured a perfect time to see how my stabilised spotlight performs. And it…Continue
