I have made a test of a NEX5 brushless gimbal used on my X8 Arducopter platform.
The video is raw and has not been post-processed.
For the more technical among you:
-Arducopter APM2.5 platform, firmware V3.0.1
-2-axis (tilt/roll) Brushless gimbal for Sony NEX5 from altigator.com (it is in fact a (re)labeled RC timer aluminium gimbal), using white labeled GBM5010 brushless motors (150 turns, able to hold 500gr cameras)
-Sony NEX5R with 16-50mm objective. This big sensor compact camera delivers 50 frames/sec video and 16 mios pixels pictures. It can be radio remote controlled through APM and a IR trigger (i used stratosnapper)
It is a second episode of the X8 series of Summer Flights in France and will soon be continued with a third...
