Servos and gyro for a camera gimbal

Recommended Posts

What kind of servos and gyro combination for a camera gimbal

Why does everybody use Futaba S3003

Some help please

Personally I'd use HiTek digital servos - what kind depends on the camera mount and the weight of camera. Ideally you should also convert them to use toothed belt rather than gears as the action is smoother.

Futaba gyros work well out of the box - GY 401 single axis or possibly GY 352 dual axis - but if you're really serious I'd recommend CSM SL 720 gyros. They are highly programmable with an easy to use Windows interface and you can set them up just the way yoiu want them. Cheapest place for them is probably www.aerialsystems.biz (UK based)

Good luck!
