The Blade 350QX are hitting the streets this week. What is going to be the brushless camera gimbal to install?

That's a nice looking gimbal especially for the money.

Works well . Check out YouTube vids on it. And beauty of it is you can get it as RTG which means assemble, supply power and go it comes pre setup. ( software )

Can this be used in conventional RC helis as a stand alone gimbal (just connect power)?

Can anyone verify it fits the blade 350? How about the weight, will the blade fly level?

Yes all it needs is 12v and you can mount it in anything. I'm not sure the bolt pattern but I would imagine its pretty universal. Little bit of mods it will fit any ship

Thanks. Will it still work with 2s - 7.4v?
I am installing in a Gasser with Powerbox Systems 7.4v 4000mA battery.

Inside the blade 350 there are two sets of servo pins that have been tested to drive servos from the mixing board for a servo style gimbal. As a newcomer to these gizmos, I wonder if a brushless motor gimbal can be used with the built in gyro controls if they are servo outputs.

Can anyone comment on brushless motor vs. servo driven gimbals from a signal source and performance perspective?

Servo driven outputs are different than brushless gimbal outputs. Completely different setup. Would not work. In my opinion the servo driven gimbal is a thing of the past. Brushless is the new norm.

Doesn't a brushless gimbal controller still accept radio inputs? Wouldn't these be the same inputs that rx's send out to servos?

Yea but like any brushless motor it needs a brushles esc sort of output. Servos are driven differently.

Tyler is trying to say that whatever gimbal is used may be able to use those two servo type outputs as the control input. Not what directly drives the brushless motors on such a gimbal, but what the brushless gimbal controller uses as the pan/tilt input.

Jkos, you are correct, and Thanks for the interpretation.

Some thoughts that come to mind...

The Blade processor already sends out gyro command signals using the built in control board. I assume most brushless gimbals come in two flavors: those with just motors, no control board, OR, gimbal with motors and control board with built in gimbal gyros.

I wonder how these components with interface and work together.

I'm interested in getting a camera into action ASAP. A call to Horizon did verify that the servo pins are controlled by the Blade ghost, but no further details could be shared. A future Blade gimbal is in the works. I don't like to wait for unknown product release dates and the video footage without a controlled gimbal leaves much to be desired.

Tyler,

Yes.

For practical use, you should match the Rx inputs to the gimbal movement.

As an example, use the Rx collective (up/down) to manipulate the gimbal tilt (up/down). Use the Rx aileron (left/right) to manipulate the gimbal pan (left/right).

This makes gimbal movements easier with much less thought.
