I came across StabilGo on Kickstarter this evening. It looks like many of the brushless gimbals out there right now, with the added opportunity to pay 3x the…Continue

I just finished my first actual useful flight trying to do something productive with my DJI Phantom. Very impressed with how it works, although I've done a fair number of modifications to it. Everything you see in the video was shot with a GoPro Hero 3 Black, 1080p30. All the flying was done in ATTI mode, except the exterior shot which was in GPS most. Wind was at…Continue
With a brushless motor and a TRex tail rotor mechanism I could assemble a simple variable pitch system. I measured and it generates 700g with the TRex 500 tail rotor blades.
I tried the Trex 250 blades from the main rotor but although they are longer the thrust is smaller, just 400g. This is probably because the motor doesn't have enough…Continue
As you all know brushless gimbals are the future, and we've just tested our first small BG for our SteadiDrone QU4D, here are some quick clips, much more to come soon. You can check out…Continue
As I progress with my build I am doing research into building my own brushless gimbal frame using spare carbon fibre and control based on the Alex Mos board http://www.simplebgc.com/eng/. I have spent the last week looking at suitable motors.
Video Series on how to fly rc helicopters / quad copters. The video above is one of the last videos in the series. Maybe a little basic for most here but good for beginners.

Since I've had such problems with buying a brushless in-runner, I've got brushless outrunner instaed.
To mount it in the plane, I've used motor mount (that was a problem to find in my country too) from the twinstar,
Pictures will tell the story.…Continue
