GoPro just announced its new camera, the Hero3+. I am really interested to see how much smaller it really is than the hero3. Longer battery, sharper lens, smaller, 720p at 120fps sounds really good to me.…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..
Seems legit, found it on SlickDeals. I have no affiliation with either sites. Thought everyone would be interested in this at the price.…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
I'm pleased to report that after an initial successful flight at Easter I have my plane back in the air (helped by finding somewhere in London to fly it), this time with the full weight of the GoPro and corresponding ballast attached.
Its a stock EasyStar with added CF in the wing spars and up the tail to strengthen it, with the addition of APM2.5+3DR and a GoPro hung at the root of the port wing. To balance some lead shot is in the starboard wing towards…Continue
Hi there is my smallest gimbal project for GoPro. The weight is 135g, carbon 3k, for pitch I've used motor from CD.Continue
It was a last minute decision and I could have been closer but I like how it turned out with the perspective of the entire town and all of the "private" fireworks shows. Filmed with my DJI Phantom, GoPro 3 Black and FatShark Attitudes.
I am a member of a French yahoo group on 3D printing. Today a member posted a link to this nice brushless gimbal that he designed for the GoPro hero3 and posted on Thingiverse. he did not reference the controller he is using but he published the design files …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
Check out my 3d printed GoPro Hero 3 lens mount
Works great on QAVs, TBS Disco etc
Planning to add some protection (something like a…Continue
I have been wondering about how to mount my GoPro camera to the 3DR Camera Tilt Gimbal and found a solution so simple yet so ingenious (if I may say so myself) that I thought it would be worth sharing.
This is my second GoPro camera. The first one broke as it fell off the Gimbal during rough…Continue
Chasing RIB boats with my FPV quadcopter.
I was sitting in the yellow boat. Pretty scary, flying over waves while holding the transmitter.

I've managed to get everything up and running again! This is my newish hexa from uDrones (I've decided to forgo a rant on that subject for now). After working around my PDB issue (still unsolved) and engaging in some…Continue
Ok it was a very long wait for those of us who bought the wifi back pack to see our GoPro video on our iphone (and other devices too)
But it's out today.
I've tested it and there is like a 3-4 seconds delay so no live streaming that could help us to do…Continue
If you have a GoPro HD HERO2 camera there's a free firmware update that doubles the video bit rate, has a neutral white balance, and disables internal noise reduction, contrast adjustments, and sharpening. This dramatically improves the quality of the video and opens new doors for…Continue
As some of you might remember, I hit a tree on my first flight and broke a wing.
Thanks to Gorilla Glue and some carbon fiber reinforcements the Bixler is up and running. I put 3 small carbon rods to reinforce the wing.
After some flights I decided it's time to attach a GoPro to it.
I have …Continue
After coming back from my honeymoon I finally found some time to get some real flights. 3 weeks ago I flew my copter for the first time but it was just a few minutes on a very low altitude in front of my block. Today I went to some open space. Unfortunately, the wind was very strong so learning changed into fighting with the wind. Still managed not to crash the…Continue
For the launch, GoPro created this…Continue
