First i'd like to thank all of you for your comments regarding our first post (http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/fpv-gimbal-for-zoom-camera?xg_source=activity). Your comments helped us with technical issues and got us really positively…Continue
A couple months back someone posted a pretty cool controller they had built which used a wireless link to feed gyro data from a remote handheld device to a Alexmos/Basecam gimbal controller... It was obviously targeted at the higher end film-maker space, and had a pricetag to match - but it caught my fancy and I had already done a bluetooth gamepad…Continue
Here is a video from our testing of SPECTER 360 prototype gimbal. Until now we have eliminated all those vibrations seen on video. I will be posting new test 3 video soon.…Continue
On INDIEGOGO is a brushless gimbal for a Gopro
which is controlled with a smartphone
Can also be montiet on a Multikopter !…Continue
I just finished making a tutorial on how to build a Arduino gamepad-based controller for any of the AlexMos-based gimbals out there with Bluetooth. The build itself is super-easy to do, probably taking about an hour or so, and the parts can be had for under $100, so I think it's a great option when you want to have one person control the camera while another controls the…Continue
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…Continue
Not so much related to drones but I dabble with gimbals, and I would assume some of you do too...
There is some interesting tech in what they are building.
Beeworks manufacture what is in my opinion the better of the build quality alexmos 32 gimbal…Continue
This is the first post in what I hope to be a series of posts on exploring the possibilities in using the Oculus Rift alongside a UAV. The plan in the long run is to create a GCS for the Oculus Rift or other HMDs that gives you a feeling of actually sitting up in the air being able to look…Continue
We teamed up with Bercom makers of the HANDy Paint Products to create the world's first residential and commercial Drone Painting Company.
Check it out!
"Tongue in cheek" this was a lot of fun and very scary at times putting a 4' pole with a roller and trying to fly it around painting stuff. It was…Continue
Norwegian Film company presents the owl cam. Basically, a brushless gimbal mounted on a helmet.
Iam wondering if such a system could withstand the shocks of a skier jumping and going full speed (impacts +…Continue
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.
You can see more about the project…Continue

Nice upgrade for those flying a Phantom 1, 2 or Vision. Gives the Phantom a wider stance as well as additional height for camera gimbals. No more legs in the shot when aggressively flying :)
You can find them HERE

Hey everyone! In case you haven't been following us on our website or here on DIY Drones, we are two guys who have been tinkering with gimbal design and other aerial photography related projects. Over the last few months we've…Continue
Just finished assembling the frame. looks like a tank! lol.Continue
Bending the parts.
Test fit of the stacked up plate and Centerpiece. I really have a hard time bending the parts. I made a sheet metal brake made of wood! Checked the distances from the CAD drawing. everything seems ok. +/- 1mm-- good enough for me.…Continue
Just fresh from the waterjet cutter..
- from my blog hobbyuav,com.
For the techpod 2.0, I want to have a high precision camera gimbal capable of continuous rotation in two axis. I have always likes the brushless gimbals that are…Continue
I wanted to design (actually took reference on a couple of existing design) my quadcopter frame. My main purpose is to have a quadcopter carry a gopro for…Continue
