DIY 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal: Acrylic, SimpleBGC, GoPro

Much better unit:

Hannover Maker Faire 2016:
I’ll be there on Saturday 28 May, testing out this weird contraption …

This video is mostly about the mechanical parts needed for a single handed gimbal. I bought a finished controller to get this done in time for the Maker Faire Hannover. Once I have all quirks figured out I might make another, better version.

De rossz a kivitelezés.. hát ilyen instabil műanyaggal az életbe nem fogja bestalilizálni ha 6 axis van benne akkor sem

Bobby Richardson says:

Excellent video! When you mentioned Hannover I had to smile, because back in the 70’s I lived in Shoeningen. I could look out my bedroom window and wave to the guards in an East German guard tower across the border. Yeah, I lived inside the 1k Zone…. 🙂

Oliver Carr says:

2:13 When you value the quality of your work more than your fingers

Michael Rinkle says:

+1 for narration! Subscribed because you show the failures as well!

Chris Leech says:

@Marco Reps, Sure this is a year old but I didn’t know about you then and plus now, I cannot comment on your scientific instrument repairs like the Keathley(sp?) . I made an EDIT: less is more>> I suggested that you might have overlooked the excellent opensource STorM32 BGC, using the ultra fast NT sensors and now the new encoders of the T-STorM version, plus!!! they are still actively upgrading enhancing and releasing firmware and hardware implementation. For handheld or RC use it is unshakable. Basecam is then much more profit oriented, but still chugging along nicely, I was surprised to find out :O
Whatever., in the larger picture it doesn’t matter unless perhaps budgetary constraints or you like the new developments in something that the average consumer takes fore granted largely until it fails

Hilldu Tech says:
