Mirror test 2, now with the 14x140 zoom lens on the GH2, OIS on.
That's eerily smooth.
That's better Mario. You need the weight on the gimbal. The GH-2 is a light camera. Try something heavier.
Bill have looked at post 80?
What does the heat sink do to the Alexmos board?
Heat sinks on the board help to dissipate heat better from the chips, so the board runs cooler.
how do you power the reciver from the alexmos
is there a output ??
i use 4s batt on my setup,can i use one motoroutput the get power to my graupner r 16 reciver??
do it take 14,8 volt or is it a 5 volt output from it
i thougth the reciver got power from the tilt out put or the yaw output but no?
On the Alexmos board there are 2 small pads labelled JP1. If you solder the pads it will pass 5 volts from the board through the rc inputs that you connect your receiver to.
I personally use a bec to give 5 volts to my receiver and to have 5 volts for video converters. I was using the power from soldering JP1 but didn't want to run converters from it.
thanks for the tips matt
Hi Guys, Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I am very curious as to how the brushless belt-drive setups have worked out for you? Did you manage to get around the amplified cogging issue?
Or perhaps all this has become moot with release of much bigger motors?
I have an old servo gimbal I'm thinking of converting
Oh and hello to all the regulars this is my first post.
Mine worked well, but now I'm running direct drive GB85 motors.
I only ran into issues with cogging on the pan with a 5208 motor, but I swapped it with a higher pole count and it smoothed it out.
The large motor direct drive gimbals are heavier than a belt setup, but they react faster and are easier/faster to tune.
(In my Opinion)
I think it mainly comes down to budget/weight
Thanks for the update Matt, most appreciated!
Ya, I've got an old Tarot 5D servo gimbal and I thought I might try running brushless motors on the belts to save weight. I've got it mounted on a Hexa and the copter is at the max comfortable weight. So going with one of the new large-motor gimbals will put me over the 50% hover margin. I'd need to dump the Canon 5D and get a lighter camera, or build an Octo... both options get a bit pricey lol.
Thanks again. I may just give this a go
Thank Josh! The information is very interesting. I like your post.
