Looking forward to the footage.
I use a piece of servo tape, or thin double sided foam tape and then make the top a little less sticky by touching it with my fingers a few times. Then it won't come off attached to the camera.
Tabb you mentioned 'metal clamps'. Are these a replacement for the standard plastic clamps for high stress areas? Hard to see them in the photos.
Tabb has the coolest job on the planet! Wish I could just test fit stuff and design cool things all day... then fly on big sets... shooting awesome stuff... oh what a job.
Looks awesome Tabb! Thanks for sharing the pics!
Hi Gary, yes Aluminum clamps for high stress areas. I mainly just use them in the roll cage where the roll cross bar attaches to prevent slipping with a heavy camera
You can see a pic here:
They will be sent to resellers soon!
Hi Josh, It is pretty fun I must admit!
Hello Tabb or anyone else. Making a rig to fly an Alexa and wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions/modifications for the 3 Axis Gimbal.
My quick thoughts are to:
- replace all clamps with aluminum ones
- replace carbon tubes with 3mm ones that are longer to get the depth
- carbon mounting plate 3mm (waterjet cut it)
- make new longer landing gear (again waterjet) or maybe see how the heck to mount the new droidworx retracts
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I thought water-jet cutting CF caused it to delaminate and that CNC milling was the preferred (but dusty) way of doing it?
You won't need to replace all the clamps with metal ones -- just those that hold the booms in relation to each other. So no need to change the clamps that hold servos, etc.
Thanks, I'm still researching & will ask the milling guys about the delam. Ill let ya know how it goes over the next few weeks
