    This is looking awesome Chris! After taking my statics course last year, this design actually makes more sense than current ones. If you have any prototypes you want to get rid of, I've got a long arm 400Q that could use a little love

    Gimbal is mounted, just waiting on my alexmos board to run some test. Chatch is in Europe right now flying his spanky around, so im not sure he will be very active for the next few weeks.

    Here is a picture with the motors mounted:



    Im new to gimbal boards so hang tight... hopefully i can get it up and running and report back soon.

    Love your design Chris - i tried a similar design a few months back & although it worked well the gimbal goes nuts when i pan down via RC control. Its definately the 'reverse' gimbal design because my other regular home-made gimbals work ok with the same electronics (AlexMoss).
    Is it a firmware limitation?

    Will be interesting to see how you get on.

    It definitely seems like a software issue. It seems to skip a beat on pitch axis

    So you are getting similar results?
    On my 'regular' gimbals I can hold the rig & roll it by hand until im tired but on this design the pitch freaks out at 90 degrees?
    Shame cos this design is lighter & stresses the motors less.

    False alarm... It works amazingly. I had a bad pitch motor


    we went through 4 motors but now it is LOCKED IN! I'll be posting sample video after I update the design files to make slight balance adjustments
