Yuneec Gimbal on DIY Multirotor

#1
Hi Everyone,
Even with years going by, Josh Bixler's Dragonfly has always caught my eye. Something that has always bothered me is how he got that Yuneec gimbal working. Are gimbals and cameras so interchangeable that you can just pick one and fit it to any flight controller? Does anyone have any idea how he rigged it up? Here's a link to the video where he introduced it. It takes center stage around 14:28:

Thanks everyone!

I have limited experience with gimbals so take this advice with a grain of salt. Yes, to some extent, they are compatible. There are size and weight limits to be aware of. You can't take a large camera and put in on a gimbal for a Mobius. Likewise don't put a Mobius on a gimbal built for a large camera. So long as you are reasonable and can get your camera to balance in the gimbal, it should work.

You may need to retune your FC to compensate for the added weight.
