Design of a 3-Axis Gimbal for Land Use

There was a joke that one could take the gimbal from a quadcopter, flip upside-down, put it on a handle, and it becomes a handheld gimbal for use on land. It was an intriguing idea. I would like to share our interesting experience in the design process.

GimBALL - 3D printed DIY Gimbal with closed hull - PART1 (design)

Hi guys, 

let me introduce my latest project, a 3D printed gimbal for MobiusHD camera. I call it GimBALL regarding of it's shape...

My goal was to make a closed, aerodynamic shaped gimbal, which can be used in the front of a plane (ie. X-UAV Talon), up to 100 km/h airspeed. So I tried to make thisthing  as…

Shock Absorber

Due to my poor Flying skills, I had to search for a way to reduce the damage due to hard landing. This is what I come up with and it works well. However at times it is too bouncy.

I also face a problem with the …

Autonomous Take-off and Landing on a Moving Carrier

This video shows the demonstration of a variable-pitch quadrotor autonomous takes off and lands (ATOL) on a moving carrier.

The system architecture is a carrier based vision system.

It use visual positioning result to eliminate the GPS bias between UAV and carrier, thus it can provide continuous and accurate positioning result for ATOL…

Looking for challenge


after finishing my last project, I'm ready for the next challenge.

However,  right now I can't afford to start another project and buy components for development, although I'd have ideas of course.

So I'd like to offer my experiences in 3D modelling, printing and basic programming skills for some…

GimBALL - 3D printed DIY Gimbal with closed hull - PART2.5 (integrating) + STL files!!!


I continue my blog with the integration of GimBALL into the nose of an X-UAV Talon.

Because of complexity and available space in the Talon's nose, I decided to build it with 2-axis stabilized setup.

I hope I'll be able to test it in the air soon, and will share some test videos. Till then, here…

Post 2. MAAXX-Europe. The Groundhog Hardware

The Groundhog was at least twice as big and probably three time as heavy as many other competitors.  Why?  Because it is built for endurance (flight time 35mins+) and also because it's what I have as my development platform.  It normally flies outdoors of course...

Ah, so that means no…
