Yesterday I pulled the trigger on a Cinestar 3 Axis gimbal to do AP work with. I thought seriously about designing my own loosely based on the Cinestar platform. However, in the end with my busy schedule traveling this year and all the other projects on my plate I decided to buy a gimbal instead. After months of research the Cinsetar was chosen to compliment my MonsterHex. I chose not to purchase any stabilization system for the new gimbal. Instead I began working on using one of my Quadrino Zoom boards. After some digging on line, a little code editing and more reading I got it to work and very well too I might add. I tested the platform on my small gopro gimbal in my hand and so far so good. Once I get everything working on the Cinestar I will post the final working code for others to use. More to come on that later..
I have also decided to devote some time into the the ArduRover project via my trusty FPV Summit. The Summit hasn’t graced the pages here lately but it is about to return soon with a MinimOSD, 3DR radios and APM2 w/ GPS. The Summit will be receiving some other goodies too. A new body has arrived that will be modified to house all the electronics making the Summit waterproof once again. Watch for the Summit to return very soon.
