    Taranis Q X7 Gimbal Not Working

    I have a Taranis Q X7 that I use to fly my race quads and tiny whoop. I noticed the problem when flying my tiny whoop, after flying forward for a while, it would start to go to the left or right. So I've narrowed it down the the transmitter. When ever I move the pitch forward or backward, the...

    Storm32 Board V 1.3 not getting out of "level" mode

    hello everyone, I built a 3 axis gimbal for my sony a6000. Unfortunately it is kind of stuck in the "level" mode, because the roll motor never reaches a level position, as he is tilting in a slow periodic way... I wasn't able to get control over the roll motor problem, tried all PID settings...

My take on a hand held 2 axis gimbal, re-using a...

    Super simple and cheap gimbal system

    I was wondering why everyone needs gimbals with motors/servos and a electronic circuit. Why don't people just put a weight on the bottom of the camera to make sure it always points up and doesn't flip over? With good axles (or whatever the camera would turn on to keep it level) that don't have...
