FPV Gimbal – Camera Mount Options

Many of the open source gimbal designs share the same 20mm bearing housing, this means that for most designs the only frame-specific part is the base, while the top/camera mount is cross-compatible between all designs that share the 20mm bearing housing. This doesn’t mean that they will all work perfectly on any base/frame, this justContinue reading “FPV Gimbal – Camera Mount Options”

Universal Head Tracker V2

Prebuilt head trackers available here: https://medlin-drone-store.myshopify.com/products/pre-built-head-tracker This is a case and mount for an Arduino based Open-Source Head Tracker. This is the the version two based off a different design. There are mount designs for both Fat Shark and DJI, as well as a universal mount.

FPV Gimbal – Xilo JB Freestyle – LDX-218

This frame design forced this gimbal to use a 18mm bearing housing meaning it is not compatible with the standard camera mount options shown elsewhere on the site. This is the base design and is intended to be used with the 18mm Universal Camera Mount. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here. Files onContinue reading “FPV Gimbal – Xilo JB Freestyle – LDX-218”

FPV Gimbal – Diatone Taycan – LDX-218

This is the base design and is intended to be used with the 20mm Universal Camera Mount. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here. Files on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4957897 The following is a link to a text file that contains the dimensions entered into the parametric design:

On-Servo Design

I have started tinkering with a design where the top “hinge” rotates directly on the servos axle instead of having a secondary axle and linkage. This would provide some advantages if it were able to produce smooth movement but will also have some notable disadvantages, worth testing though. Will update post after initial testing. Update:Continue reading “On-Servo Design”

FPV Gimbal – Shen Drones Geyser/Squirt – LDX-218

This is design for the Shen Drones Geyser and Squirt (V1/V2/V3), for the Squirt there are no standoffs that could match the rear screw holes are just zip tied down, this has worked fine and I am yet to break a zip tie despite some hard crashes. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here.Continue reading “FPV Gimbal – Shen Drones Geyser/Squirt – LDX-218”

FPV Gimbal – TBS Source One – LDX-218

This is the base design and is intended to be used with the 20mm Universal Camera Mount. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here. Files on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4941753 The following is a link to a text file that contains the dimensions entered into the parametric design, this will allow you to modify the designContinue reading “FPV Gimbal – TBS Source One – LDX-218”

FPV Gimbal – Shen Drones Ichabod V2 – LDX-218

This is a design I made for the Ichabod V2. I am including a version that has a built in TBS Crossfire Immortal-T mount, as well as one that doesn’t. This is a specific offshoot design where I removed the bearing housing and separately created a bear housing in a different CAD model. I amContinue reading “FPV Gimbal – Shen Drones Ichabod V2 – LDX-218”
