I have been searching high and low (I believe) for information on how to connect an control high end gimbals for DSLR cameras that only support PPM/SBUS/Canbus etc. for example: https://www.gremsy.com/gremsy-h7

I need to be able to control the gimbal FROM the pixhawk not just passthrough from the remote control.

Any pointers are welcome.

Thanks, Peter

  • Enable sbus out, should be straight forward
  • Should be fairly easy. Just uncheck stabilize. Check documentation http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-camera-gimbal.html

  • Hi

    No answers to the issue but i need to join in as i have exactly the same problem.

    I have a pixhawk powered X8 controlled via a gruapner 8 channel TX'r. I now also have a Gremsy H3 gimbal that will need a PPM input and this appears to mean 2 transmitters.

    But, i also want to fire the shutter on a Nikon D90 DSLR. I could do this via the Graupner/pixhawk and a passthough channel but that means the camera shutter is controlled by a different person to the one controlling the gimbal. This is not ideal .

    Are there connection options i am not considering here by any chance ?

    Regards

    keith

  • I agree. However if available gimbals only provide the above: PPM/SBUS etc. is there a way to achieve that?
  • Truly high end would speak mavlink, check out http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-storm32-gimbal.html
