It's amazing how quickly BLGs went from a novelty and costing thousands (zenmuse) to something you can get for $172 shipped!
I received my RCTimer Brushless Gimbal (BLG) and…Continue
I built this Wire Rope GoPro mount out of a couple of Furniture leg coasters, a Bicycle Brake cable and some electrical brass wire connectors removed from their plastic housing. Test flown this morning and here is the result.
I'm very pleased with the video as I have tried many ways to remove the rolling shutter effect previously and this is by far…Continue
I'm sure everyone who is into aerial videgography with the wonderful GoPros have struggled with getting Jello Free (rolling shutter) video footage from multicopters. I have tried them all. Using ND filters to lower the shutter speed of the GoPro (worked somewhat but ruined image quality), shot in 720p @60fps but would have preferred shooting in full HD. Tried all sorts of foam and vibration absorption materials, ear plugs, rubber foam mounts, hours balancing my propellers…Continue
Here is a picture of my little JVC Adixxion, replacement for my malfunctioning GoPro Black.
As you may know I published a BLOG of my experiences and trials and tribulations with the much vaunted GoPro Hero 3 Black.
Finally after much wasted time dealing with the GoPro Company sent it back for a…Continue
Here's a simple servo-controlled very light GoPro mount for any UAV. I have machine tools to make this, but you might be able to do it with simple home tools. The real trick is a direct connection between the servo and the camera rotator, and to use a control link ball (left side in photo) so you don't need to hit…Continue
We designed a dock and made a prototype by carving out all the components from glass-fabric board and putting them together.
the concept is like this
the prototype is showed as below…Continue
The GoPro Hero 3 is the newest series of the popular GoPro hero Camera which has already gained wide popularity for use in RC planes, helicopters and multicopters.
It is an amazing little camera with incredible video and photo capabilities and the WiFi up and down link and remote provide an excellent…Continue
If you have ever watched a motorcycle race on TV you would have seen some fantastic shots taken from the back of bikes. Part of what makes that view so stunning is the realistic view you get of what a rider sees when the bike leans over at high speeds through corners. You may not have noticed that what makes these angles so realistic is that the camera stays level…Continue
Making a 3D model of something with pictures isn't something new to most of us, but there have been a lot of people getting into drones recently and I wanted to show something useful you can do with your drone. Autodesk's 123D Catch has a very useful feature not everyone knows about; Once you have your 3D…Continue
Here is my FPV Village Video with my FPV-Raptor
This is an awesome compilation of my best FPV flights from the first half of the summer since I moved home to Colorado after graduating from law school in Virginia. Lots of low-level proximity action and beautiful scenery from the Colorado low lands south of Denver. Highlights include Daniels Park, Mount Herman in Monument, Castlewood Canyon, and the new…Continue
Everyone needs some time to relax ...
I hope this helps you as good as me ;-)
I recently noticed these cameras in one of my local stores. By the looks of it they are basically built along the same lines as the GoPros. I'm not sure how they compare, but if anyone has any experience with these little cameras, please feel free to post you comments. You can find more info on their website here: …Continue
Our first FPV team flight try.…Continue
JVC and Sony are taking on GoPro with new small HD "action cams". The shape of these will possibly have much better aerodynamics than the GoPro... more in line with Contour's cameras. Notice JVC's is already "quad proof". I'm sure they had quad copter drones in mind. :)
