"Hello David, I have already done what you were trying to do an it does work. I have a 3 axis gimbal with a Storm controller. The only input I have wired is RC on the tilt. I control cam tilt with a TX pot or the AP can take control of…"
"I like the Storm32 controller. You can get one for ~70 - 80 USD from China, that's with a gopro sized gimbal! I haven't really used other types. There's lots of gimbals that size for ~ $200, if you want motor encoders you will…"
"Well, you have some reading to do! Gimbals don't just work you need to calibrate the accelerometers, physicaly balance the gimbal mechanism, do an auto detect to get all the motors going the right way. And about the connections, I really…"
"Yes the mode channel must stay in RTL. If the mode channel changes the new mode will be selected. If RTL mode was the result of a low battery or radio lose it will stay in that mode even when the radio is working again. The mode switch must change…"
"The clockwise motors,1,3,6 are less power than the counterclockwise,2,4,5 motors. It is compensating for an inherent yaw in the airframe. I am assuming you have clamp type motor mounts and tube arms. Check that all the motors are on the same plane,…"
"From your picture I can see that it is installed correctly with the yellow arms being the front. Also the fact that is flying means it is the correct orientation, otherwise it would flip over. I think what you need to do is reverse the pitch…"
Hey Greg ! It hit me while I was sleeping tonight and woke me up ! Getting baby scale is an Excellent idea! not just to weigh the plane but if I get one that shows ounces and fraction of ounces I can weigh each item and figure it's moment before I put it in the plane and help figure the best spot for it from the COG + or - and keep the trimming ballast to a minimum. the rest of the plane will be foam I have been looking at power plants and might do Something Novel ? I am aiming for a take off weight of 4 1/2 to 5 pounds if I get a power plant out of something 7 to 10 pounds it should be lots Thanks! Have a Great Day!
I read your posts that you have made a camera gimbal stabilizer. I work on Arduplane source code, with the APM-1 board, attaching 2 servo to work out solution for 2-axis stabilizer. It will be helpful if you could share your source so that I can have a look at it to get a better idea !
