Near to building an Octo . tho a DSLR is overkill .. whats wrong with the waterproof AW1 (apart from discontinued) always liked AW1 camera controls .. anyone dealt with a remote interface for it ?
Rus Talis .. WU-1b wireless adapter. typical backward functionality stuck in FBook mentality to share share share, when will manuf learn , users want camera control .. oh well .. back to the dumb & dumber channel .. Nikon sure kno nothing about feature access .. button only for AW-1, except shoot ( 50foot range can be circumvented , but its a non starter
thanks Nikon ..
Wi-Fi Shooting: Images can be taken remotely using a compatible smart device using the camera's Live View preview on the smart device to frame and compose the subject.
Note: Smart device is used to remotely fire the camera, maximum distance is up to 49 feet and the smart device can’t be used to adjust settings on the camera.
Hi Ishfaaq, some thoughts on your request.
You want a multi rotor that you built yourself to lift an expensive camera in a stabilizing and vibration controlling gimbal.
The short answer is - yes. The Pixhawk AP is a mature system and is extremely reliable - in my experience. There are very few AP's out there like the Pixhawk in its open and large user group and dedicated dev team.
Now, understanding this, you must ask yourself if you can scratch build a heavy lift unit, do the connections, soldering, insulating, weight reduction wiring ect. ect. to the point that you can send out the copter for 20 minutes with the huge investment hanging off - or might it be wiser to look at a commercial product with all the features you want already built in like a Inspire or the bigger units.
If you insist on doing your own thing, use eCalc to check your setup for endurance and optimize the parts. Can not go wrong with Pixhawk - make sure you buy good quality electronics.
