Hi, im looking into how easy it can be to mount this gimbal on other things other then a drone. I sent an email, but I was wondering if the community has some thoughts on this or tried it themselves. Can you safely power the gimbal waterproof or can it be made such. I really want to attach this to a pole to then attach it to the back of my catamaran. Mounting the pole is not a problem, but I need some unit to contain the battery and a sturdy connection to the pole.
I am curious to your experiences or pictures that you can provide.
Hi Delboy, thanks for the response. thanks for the tip, but cant find Craig's post (https://www.facebook.com/SplashDrone/) nor in the section 'Visitor Posts'.
I forgot about the control of the gimbal. Does the splash drone controller allow to control the gimbal?? I guess I need some sender receiver for this. I'm really new at this, but I only would need a handheld control for the gimbal. I don't know if there are smaller remotes that can communicate with this gimbal if a receiver unit was attached?
Hi Daniel, yep there are a couple of splashdrone facebook pages and its in this one www.facebook.com/groups/SplashDrone/ it is a closed group page so you will have to join the group.
You could control the gimbal with most controllers with a variable switch or a stick which is not centred just connector the receiver to the gimbal controller and you will be able to change the roll/pitch setting. If you don't need that facility then I think the gimbal defaults to horizontal/vertical when no rc input connected. So would look straight ahead.
If you wanted to use the same controller then you could just buy another receiver for it and I'm sure you can bind multiple receivers to the remote and switch profile to which ever device you would be using!!
Simple way for fpv when just using the gimbal with no drone is the wifi on your gopro with the app.

tyuyrt: Hello, I just installed a new GPS with lid - it only works when the lid and cable are dangling down the side of the drone; as soon as I close the lid the lights flash yellow red and green and I cannot take off. I'd appreciate any insights.

chris: I had to go through all the settings in the app (computer) and reset some settings as well as reset some of the defaults. After that I was good to go again.

chris: marksdrone: just had the same issue with mine. It may be the accelorometer that you need to calibrate first and then do the compass after that.
