Universal Adapter for DJI Cameras / Gimbals

Hi, guys,

We'd like to update you on what's happening with our universal adapter for DJI cameras (see here for more info in case you've missed it).

While developing our tethered drone system AirMast, we've also put work into designing a universal camera adapter for DJI cameras. What this means is that using it you are able to use DJI cameras and gimbals on almost any drone or even without the drone itself.

Currently the following camera gimbals are supported: DJI Zenmuse: X3, X5, X5R, XT, Z3

We do not plan on selling the hardware so we've made that open source and have created a GitHub documentation for assembling it: http://doc.airma.st/camadapter/

For controlling the camera you need software for the onboard computer and the web-app for controlling the camera. We've made it available for purchase from our site here: https://www.ugcs.com/en/page/airmast-camadapter

If you want to get in touch with us or have some questions regarding the camera adapter, either leave a comment below or drop us an e-mail at ugcs@ugcs.com

Wishing you a warm and happy Holiday Season,
UgCS Team

  • Hi,

    yes, but you will need to write couple lines of code.

    You can modify this module - https://github.com/airmast/attitude-feeder - and trigger camera using CamAdapter API.

    Application that gets data from AHRS and sends it to CamAdapter - airmast/attitude-feeder
  • is there any option to control trigger using Pixhawk on mapping mission?
