I have been using a standard Goodluckbuy GoPro gimbal on my multi-rotors for a while now and I wanted to upscale it slightly to allow me to use my Cannon Powershot cameras to see if the video was any good and to also take some good stills.
[Spoiler Alert] My ELPH 300s is useless for video :(, the optics are fantastic with a really wide angle but none of the distortion you get from a GoPro but the framerate is 24fps for 1080 and not much better for 720. It takes fantastic stills though!!
So anyway, I was let lose with solidworks for a while and came up with this:
The motors are 2804-210Kv Brushless Gimbal Motors from Hobbyking, the rest is 10mm aluminium box, 2mm glass fibre plate and m3 hex nuts/bolts.
So I fired up my CNC router and threw a sheet of 2mm glass fibre plate.
And the finished result attached to my FPV quad (article to follow):
It works really well for both the Cannon and GoPro but a little more tuning is needed.
