I just ordered one couple of days ago, should arrive tomorrow. I think it look like a very good mount. 4 lb payload, more than enough for most HD cameras

They are heavy, but look strong. Looks like they would be best used for underslung mounts

Is that the price 49.99? If so looks like a pretty good deal. may have to get one. Looks like it has lots of headroom larger cameras

Yes, 49.99 for the frame. Great deal. I can afford to crash a few them.

Dang, can't complain about the price for sure. I have one of their other mounts with the 360 comtinuous pan so I'm good to go there. I could take it off and put it on this. Maybe get some isolation dampers from MC Masters to mount it to minimize vibration. Hmmmm, something to think about.

This information was found on a home built stabilizer website for Cranes and Jibs.
The new aluminum units are done and are now being anodized a flat black. Not too much longer, we promise. We are now working on a roll attachment for the new aluminum units. We also just finished up web pictures showing our test rigs so you can see how we test each unit when the aluminum units are launched.
The long wait will be worth it. They can move extremely slow and butter smooth but also run up to 50 degrees a second! They are really something to see in operation.

We will have two versions.
One version with geared HS-785HB servos on both the pan and tilt systems. This system is very good and smooth. External potentiometers are not needed yet still offers 360 degrees on each axis (5:1 ratio). The gear ratios can quickly be changed for various speeds but the 5:1 ratio gives very good slow speed and up to 30 degrees per second running full speed. This system assembled will be less than $500.
For those shooting broadcast quality "live" video where it has to be ultra smooth from start to finish with no steps we will be offering the same system but with other servos with 8.6:1 gear ratios. This system runs external potentiometers with full metal gears and should be less than $600 fully assembled. Note that even the first system with the 785HB servos can eventually be upgraded to the "live broadcast" unit. All the corresponding mounts are already there. This is what took us so long, designing a system that can be easily changed to fit various markets and price points.

Not sure if they'll sell the individual parts.

Maybe shoot them an email.

There's a smaller 550 version $39 as well. 4" wide instead of 6.25"

I have the 550 mount, with some trimming the A640 will fit. I havent tried modding it so the downlink will fit though.

Mounting to an undercarriage

I just got off the phone with them and they recommended the following for the capability to munt up to 4 lbs.

1. 1 DDT560 w/ mounts for HITEC servos $50
2. 1 SPG785 Gearbox w/ 5:1 metal gears assembled $146
3. 1 HITEC 5985 MG Servo w/ 180 Rotation $100

Then you would need to choose or design a mount for the undercarraige.

They are very helpful and willing to talk the technical specs of their product with potential customers. They indicated a 3 t 5 day lead time to build / configure and then they ship and they are out of Kansas.

Can anyone suggest a mount system for this?

Leon

I know if you do front mount it's pretty easy to mount it.

Nice looking mount the 550, could be what I am looking for on my next build. I will be using a Quick Japan-8SP, 425mm blades with a fwd mounted gimbal, tilt axis servo gyro stabilized and the roll axis gravity stabilized. What mean is the roll axis will be allowed to rotate and because it will have low C of G it will hang vertical unless I pull G’s in the corners. I have done some thing like this before it works pretty good. I am hoping I will be able to balance the gimbal so the camera lens center is at the point of roll and tilt axis. This will be single person operation heli by doing this I am hoping to reduce pilot work load. First I will have to do some flight testing to see what the machines payload is and build from there.

Streetwize
What is the weight of that unit as it sits with camera?

Hard job competing with gravity.

Wouldn't the direct drive tilt function be a bit too fast for smooth video? Seems like you'd want it geared down.

For stills it wouldn't be an issue, but video.........

That's what I thought about the tilt, grear box would be better, but I worry about the weight. It's heavy to begin with. I ordered the 560 from them 2 Fridays ago and they just notice me that the mount are shipping yesterday, after I given them a call this MOnday.

What if you ran alot of "expo" should slow your movements down.
