FPV Gimbal – Rotor Riot CL1 + HD1 + XR – LDX-218

This is the base design and is intended to be used with the 18mm Universal Camera Mount. It will fit both the normal and XR versions, the base is specific to the CL1 and HD1 as they have different bolt patterns. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here.

FPV Gimbal – T-Motor FT5 MKII V2 HD – LDX-218

This is a designfor the T-Motor FT5 MKII V2 HD, I have chosen to reverse the drone and use the back as the front in order to not move the DJI Air Unit, but I am including options for both normal and reverse orientation.

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”

FPV Gimbal – Shen Drones Terraplane – LDX-218

This is a design for the Shen Drones Terraplane. Guide for 3D printing the gimbal design here. Files on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4964713 UPDATE: This design is compatible with the 20mm Universal Mount. If the Universal Mount doesn’t work with this base or for your application this design is compatible with the 20mm GoPro/FPV Camera Mount Options:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4983596

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.

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.
