Mount Camera Gimbal on Mini Quadcopter - Feiyu Mini3D 3-Axis Review. To do aerial filming it doesn’t have to be a large multicopter, let’s push the limit of mini quad and mount a 3-axis camera gimbal on it, see what we can do.

Mount Camera Gimbal on Mini Quadcopter - Feiyu Mini3D 3-Axis Review

I chose the Feiyu Mini3D gimbal for this aerial photography platform, because of its small form factor and light weight. Get your Feiyu Mini 3D 3-Axis Camera Gimbal from Banggood. I am quite impressed with the end result. For someone like me who doesn’t have extensive experience in using a camera gimbals, I find this Feiyu Mini 3D gimal really easy to use!

Everything just works out of the box! The stabilization was working great even when it was windy, and my quad wasn’t properly tuned either which wobbles a lot during flight. However I do find just a little yaw vibrations in still shots, and sometimes a slight wobbles in sharp bank turns. I built a 2-axis camera gimbal from scratch before , even though I was using plywood sheet for the frame, and there were only 2 motors, it still weights quite a bit. Related 21st June 2014. 250 grams or less flight weight brushless motor multirotor thread. Discussion 250 grams or less flight weight brushless motor multirotor thread The threshold requiring R/C pilot registration in the U.S. is the outdoor, remotely controlled operation of anything that flies that is over 250 grams in mass.

250 grams or less flight weight brushless motor multirotor thread

I specified brushless motors here to avoid a thread filled with a bazillion toy grade suggestions. Suggestions for RTF, kits, and scratch builds wanted here. Aircraft must be available in the U.S. or via very cheap shipping from elsewhere, such as China. SOME of the links below might be over the 250g flight weight limit, especially the 180 size quads.

The radio communication is done using the Nordic “Enhanced ShockBurst™” packet protocol in PTX mode with acknowledge. Variable sized packet, from 1 to 32 bytes, can be send and acknowledged by the copter. The acknowledgement packet can contain a payload from 0 to 32 Bytes. This page documents the protocol used in version 0.52 of the Crazyradio dongle. Future version (up to 1.0) will be kept compatible. Radio configuration Crazyradio is configured in PTX mode. PRX mode One active pipe with the address configured in the Crazyradio dongle, by default it is 0xE7E7E7E7E7 5 byte address Dynamic payload length enable Payload with ack enable The Crazyflie is already configured that way.

USB protocol The USB devices has the VID/PID couple 0x1915/0x7777. Data transfer When the radio dongle is configured to use PTX (emitter) mode it sends a packet to the copter and waits for the acknowledge. Send the packet to EP1_OUT. Set data rate. Bitcraze Crazyflie frame by VGer. v1.7 - See v1.6.5 - This frame is similar to v1.5 with some minor alterations to the motor attachments and thicker/stronger outer rings.

Just make sure not to "break" them off, since this kind of force might affect the MEMS sensors. Answered by Marcus Eliasson | 2014-03-18 No, it shouldn't since there are no signals routed out onto the arms that holds the motors. Is this compatible with the JR DSM2/DMSS transmitter? It could be compatible with a transmitter using the Nordic radio chip (like the E-Sky transmitter). What is the best joystick to control a Crazyflie? The best one I've seen is a USB PlayStation 3 controller.
