3D-Printed DSLR Camera Gimbal

Vince Hogg’s pan and tilt system for his oct-rotor. It weighs only 900 grams including the camera, carbon rods, iPower 4008-150 gimbal motors, AlexMos motor controller and mounting bracket.

One fascinating aspect of the build is that Vince printed the parts with different densities, depending on how much of a load it needed to bear. The octo-rotor he’s building was designed with a vibration isolation system to keep the camera mount steady. He chose 8 motors to keep the bird from crashing if one of the motors dies.
