Generic Camera Gimbal - Hexacopter / Quadcopter / Tricopter.
by JakeKing, published
You will need :
8 x M3 / 20mm phillips head nuts and bolts
2 x M4 / 15mm nut and bolt for mounting to quad.
Micro servo ( I had a spare metal gear servo, China branded one)
Regular servo ( Again, had a spare so used it)
Some glue for securing everything!
I directly mounted the servos without servo horns using some glue, however if you would like to use standard servo horns I am sure the design would be easily modified.
If there is enough interest i'll put up a video as to how it performs, very simple to build once printed. I used PLA, printed 0.2 layer thickness on a printrbot Jr.
It might need a bit of tweaking, but I think it is a good basis to build from. Attached to my F550 first attempt. Using it with a KK2 board from hobby king.

I am trying to modify this gimbal to fit with my servos and a 3DR quad. Any chance you could post the source files?
tarek : )
How wide of a camera can you put in it? I'm looking for a gimbal for my Sony RX100 and connect it to my DJI Phantom using the built in gimbal interface to power and run it.
