DIY kinetic/motion gimbal controller

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...

DIY Bluetooth AlexMos/BaseCam gimbal controller

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…
