Introducing the Flying Monkey Mini Camera Gimbal!

I've been messing around with video on the Blade 400 for some time, and through several iterations I now have a completely custom gyro stabilized pan + tilt wireless camera. This design allows for the flexibility of our larger heli but with the expendibility and saftey of our wicked witch planes
This is the camera itself. Mounting it on the front of the heli allows for a good range of motion. It can even point upwards without begin obstructed!
Here is the control box. The whole assembly is very lightweight and designed to stay well out of the way of the helicopter mechanics.
The battery is mounted underneath the main rotor. It can power both the camera and the rc system.

The entire assembly. Two people are required to operate the heli and camera. Thankfully, the VR goggle video downlink system from our large camera system is also compatible with this system.

Video coming soon!
