Stabilizer For Remote Controlled Airplane for FPV and Aerial Video
So many cool things about this project I don't know where to start.
This (if I understand fully) is a beautifully designed pan-tilt-roll gimbal for a GoPro HD camera to attach to a remote control airplane and stabilize the footage.. Ok, already very cool. SFX is using servos from Hobbyking (MKS470) or other places, and you can use a remote control with v-tail or elevon mixers to drive this as a 3-axis pan tilt unit. For the gyro stabilization you'll need some 3-axis gyro and micro-controller to generate the servo signals.
Plenty of things I know nothing about but get excited when I see a video of the unit in action like this.
What a month March was for the Shapeways community.
We started the month with an invite to join us at Makerfaire UK in Newcastle, which turned out to be a great success with Ralph and Bart joined by community members Euphy and Stop4Stuff who had an awesome time talking until their throats were hoarse about 3D printed coolness.
We launched the ICFF contest to give you the opportunity to have your 3D printed designs on show in NYC, already the contest is hotting up with some great entries, make sure you get yours in soon.
