Does anyone have a recommendation for a 3-axis gimbal for an Iris+?
The only option I have found out there is the DYS 3 Axis. Are there any others that work with a GoPro Hero 4 Black?
If someone who owns a DYS and an Iris sees this, I have a few questions:
Feiyu G3 gimbal
Here in Canada i am having a hard time finding the DYS gimbal for sale. And many of the sites outside of CAN are sold out.
Correct me if i am wrong but i thought i read somewhere that the tarrot mounting plate works with the DYS gimbal?!? I ordered the plate with my iris + in hopes that another gimbal can use it. (it was only for an extra $10 anyways).
How heavy is the whole setup?
Would you be interested in sharing your PIDs / settings?
Also what firmware revision are you running?
Embarrassed to say that I don't know.
It is definitely heavier than a Tarot 2D gimbal.
I have had one flight in cold weather that lasted 11 minutes and about 45 seconds. I've had other flights longer than 11 minutes. For the kind of filming I do, its fine. I usually plan the shoots ahead of time. I send it out, get what I need, bring it back within 6 or 7 minutes, swap the battery and send it back out for additional takes. I expect to get longer flight times when the weather warms up.
I would be happy to.
I will have to cart out my PC to connect and check. Probably will be a while before I get around to that (within a few days at most).
I did not actually configure much myself - thats why I went for the more expensive xproheli version. There was a warning in the instructions about NOT using the latest firmware and not updating whenever firmware comes out until they have a chance to check things out at xproheli.
Thanks, that would be much appreciated.
For the most part, following the settings in Kerry Garrison's video (RocketVideo / RCGroups), I've been able to get a fairly stable image. The problem I have been struggling with is getting YAW to operate properly in the "Follow" mode. Mine always seems to drift a few degrees to the left when moving in the forward direction. There is a YAW offset, but it doesn't seem to help much.
Just curious what settings you are running, then I can compare.
Well, I decided to jump on this now.
The following screen shots should answer all your questions. I grabbed a screen shot of each Tab in the configuration software. The PIDs are in the Basic Tab.
Since my DYS came pre-configured and pre-programed, the only changes I've ever made are to the Pitch Min and Max angle on the RC Settings Tab.
