    if it fits, then that's great. I modeled the gimbal assuming everyone flies with 2216 1100kv motors. the 2212 980kv work too I guess. If the prop doesn't hit anything then you don't have to worry about changing motors.

    I test flew the gimbal setup last night, using a cheap SBGC board.
    The gimbal was working nicely, tuned adequately but when the quad is flying vibrates horribly. I added ferrites everywhere, moved the wires around and balanced my props but didn't really get anywhere. Finally I turned down the D values 25% in the FC (a Vector) and it seems to be able to hover with only a few slight shudders.
    I know a few people were getting a lot of vibrations with the printed versions (Chatch kindly provided mine). Did anyone get better results with stiffer parts? (ahem! I mean stiffer 3d printed gimbal parts)

    I was finally getting some good footage from the gimbal and it fell apart!!!

    Sections of the 3d printed arm separated in flight, I guess it's back to the drawing board. I hope you get a chance to get some proper moulds made Chris!

    Everything I've printed and put on a multirotor not in compression has come apart eventually. It's a bummer when it happens.

    Changed over my gimbal to aluminium arms. It's working quite well now!
    I'm not sure if this project is still a thing, I suspect not, it would be a great product though!Click image for larger version.

    Hello , thelast hours , I have read this post and I am impressed by the design! Really good innovative job!The last months I 'm looking for a gimbal which can be 360 ​​degrees ROLL axis . Have any of you havea video that shows this? I'm also curious about the board and softwarethat's used. I planning to build one next week so any help would be great. Thanks!
