Does anybody know if the BGC2608-70T yaw motor from Goodluckbuy comes with the slip ring? It’s not shown on their site, but it is on the DYS page for the motor.
Is there possibility to re-organise the setup so that the tilt motor is on the left hand side for the GoPro3+ or 4?
I presume that OlliW’s GUI allows for the StorM32 board to set the orientation of the IMU on the camera mount?
From pix of the wiring, do I understand that the wiring of the IMU to the board should be randomly placed and as far away from the motor wires as possible? I assume that the wires supplied for the slipring are all insulated!

The two SlipringMotors comes incl. The Slipring!
Of cause, The laserframes are Symetric. You Can change The side of the arms as you want, the only thing is, in case dir the Gopro You have to avoid the LenseRing of the Xiaomi Frame, thats all.
And The Imu You Can Place in all directions, You just have to change in The GUI.
Yes for The wiring, it is important to Keep distance between The IMU and Motor cable. Also The IMU and The Motor cable should ne twisted too. At least, You should use one small ferrit ring as in my Pictures, so You Can kill all IMU-Errors!

Hi Benny et al
I have attached a 3D drawing of the parts for the 360 altered to suite a rail hanger system.
Perhaps this will be of use to anyone wanting to 3D print the parts.
The .rar file contains the file in .stl format and the other is in 3dm which can be imported into Autocad.
I hope this helps.
By the way Benny where did the retractable landing gear on the Quad in the video come from. Tarot maybe?

Having just had to replace the faulty pitch motor on my EI 360, and in so doing rather damaged the arm, I thought it might be sensible to glue a 10mm ID aluminium sleeve into the arm rather than gluing the motor bush itself.
The motor can then be fixed using two grub screws or cap screws, top and bottom, enabling easy removal of the arm motor without damaging the arm. See the attached.

thanks to share us your refined solution for this problem.

That’s real DIY! Great Idea!28. September 2016 um 16:43 #3431
Hi Benny and George
It looks as though the Globe Flyer has matured into a very neat little quad!
I was interested to see that Dji is about market their ‚Mavic‘ quad, which looks remarkably like the GlobeFlyer….. They must have been watching.
Anyway nice work. Congratulations.

The next GlobeFlyer clone is the Gopro Karma 🙂9. Oktober 2016 um 17:16 #3444
I have finally rebuilt my quad after a bad crash, which destroyed the roll arm. So I had the parts 3D printed and glued them together with Loctite 401. Seems to be fine, if expensive.
I now find that after about ten minutes the gimble has an attack almost like epilepsy, rolling around uncontrollably, mainly in the roll axis. Otherwise it behaves very well indeed. (RCtimer yaw motor, Walkera pitch and roll motors)
I suspect it might be that I had the motor power setting dialed up too high.
I have now set them all to 150.
Could somebody post their PID setting for reference please?
Would be much appreciated.
By the way I have the power from a 3S/4S regulated so that it is a maximum of just over 10V.

Sorry should have looked on the forum….
Found the PIDs.

Hi Benny and all..
I’m still having problems getting the STorM32 board set up so that it works consistently.
Having just flashed 2.20 firmware I see that all the stock PIDs for ‚D’are set at 4, but the motor power settings are quite a bit lower than I have been using (150)..Seems to be more stable.
What voltage is commonly used to power the board using the gimbal motors that you recommend? Maybe my voltage is set too low?? (±10V)
Dave P.11. März 2017 um 20:55 #4270
nice to here from you, but not that you having trouble….
Mhhh… All my EagleEi Gimbals was configured by just 2S -> 7,2V!
Why? … because the I2C Errors coming from the IMU while the Slipring.
Few month ago, I build my RunCam2 Gimbal firsttime with the NT-IMU Setup, meanwhile I can go with my direct 3S Setup – around 11V! without any trouble from the IMUs!
So, my suggsetion, if your setup is runing with more than 2S without IMU-Errors, try to use around 12V, so you can reduce the Motor-curent because the higher voltage, taht should reduce problems with the PIDs.
What kind of EagleEi Setup you have? … please send some pictures/videos, maybe that could help for finding the bugs.
all the best!

I’m running the Storm32 V1.3 board flashed with NT217e and an Atom 3CCD Imu.
The gimbal seems to work fine except for the fact that it doesn’t start in a consistant forward yaw position.
It seems that this is caused by the failure in the last stage of the configuration to set the yaw position and then save eeprom to the board.
I get a fail every time. Very odd.
I will try powering the board with a full 12v to see whether it makes a difference.
Video to follow.

Your piece about the joys of building a flying machine versus buying a Dji Mavic or similar, is really heart felt.
Even though I have been in this hobby for a relatively short time, about four years, the technology has progressed recently at an exponential rate.
We have seen the cost reduce, and the sophistication of these craft increase to the extent that one wishes one had invested in the hobby latterly, rather than before…
However the joy and frustration of having been through the loop of trying to understand the tech, even in a superficial way, makes up for the lag behind the cutting edge, in the form of Dji and others.
It’s impossible to keep up.
In that spirit is has been a real privelege to have been part of it, especially in this forum and that of OlliW and the StorM32 gimbal, irrespective of how little I know about code and electronics in general.
My respect for you guys is immence.
All the best for the future.
