something similar to dji spreadwings s900

Hi im looking for a quad or hex that could hold a small mirroless camera like the panasonic g7 with a gimbal. I like the dji cuz of the folding arms and the retracts but its a bit overpriced, also not sure if i need something that big. if anyone has some inexpensive suggestions pls let me know. maybe something from tarot?

  • A little more research will reveal that there is a version - NovaX Plus Aerial Photography Set available with a G3 Pro Gimbal that includes a 5.8Ghz transmitter integrtated into the gimbal attachment platform.- you supply GoPro or Yi camera - http://www.rclogger.com/NovaX-Plus-Aerial-Photography-Set.html

  • That looks pretty cool but it's missing a camera live feed which makes it essentially useless for areial video.
  • I think that if you study what the RC Logger NovaX 350 has to offer you will find it to be a price value leader which offers you everything you are stating you would like to have. It also offers full autonomous pref light planning, a smart phone configuration application with your choice of GoPro or Xiaomi Yi cameras.

    I am not a vendor nor employee of RC Logger just a happy customer.

  • If you are still looking for a way to carry your s7, this could be an option and meets the rest of your requirements: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/aperture-rtf-m1.html

    The Aperture is a new professional 800mm wheelbase hexacopter drone designed for aerial photography. It features all that you want in a large camera…
  • damn the new phantom 4 pro is killin my diy ideas. i feel like there is no way to get something like that with all those features and compatability for a lower price.

  • Agreed

    eCalc is a great place to start. The thrust/power calcs are quite a bit off if I compare the computed values compared with real, measured values. eCalc is usually conservative, but it relies on manufacturer's marketing data, not real-life tested systems.

  • I have designs to suit, but as I said please PM.

  • Hmm ok do u have any reccomendations as to parts? And what a final product might look like?
  • A reliable frame, motors, props, pixhawk, gimbal, batteries etc - - around $2500 for a professional grade system. 

    Closer to $1500 for a hobby grade system

    PM if you need specifics such as designs and technical details.
