Super Simple Gimbal

This was posted over at RCG, the OP crezzee was not not interested in starting another discussion here but I think he came up with a brilliant idea for a simple gimbal mount that many would be interested in here.

See thread here>>

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1793759

The question is will his mount work in APM code since it uses a V-tail mix on the gimbal??

Possibly the mount could be modified to use a standard gimbal mix by moving the tube and servo.

    Guys, my current quad setup is running on some stable research firmware, so I cannot test my own SSG control code. Is anyone who already has an SSG setup on their quad willing to test out some of my code to enable support for mixed gimball?

    I can provide a quick and dirty snippet of code which you'll have to put in usercode.pde and upload to the APM using Arduino. If anyone is willing...?

  • Has anyone successfully used a V-Tail mixer to make this work? I have tried everything I can think off but can't get it to work correctly with a mixer!

    I have the SSG plates, but have not yet installed them yet. The APM code should be quite simple... Just need a developer to integrate and push to Git.

  • Looks like a perfect solution for many of us,

    Wonder how difficult it would be to get the APM to handle this.

    Worst case scenario, could just use a KK2 for the purpose of gimbal control only. Still very much worth it for 20 quid or so.

  • I would really like to know if it will work. If so I am gonna add it to my tri.
