I put the gimbal on my chesty with the custom mount I had printed.
I’m still waiting for the 3D print mount and I had this type of mount in mind as well.
I fabricated it today with some scrap Fast and Furious speedrail.
It worked well and I can’t wait to try it out on the bikes and skates!
I swore off posting test footage, but found the necessity when I was making the decision to buy this thing.
It was fun to try different positions. It will be much more smoother when I can manage fixed positions and/or use post software stabilization.
I started including about 4 tablespoons of coconut oil each day in my diet for the last week.
It started with bullet proof coffee. I liked the idea of drinking coffee that has a time release effect. Plus it tastes like a frothy latte’. Once I read about all the biological benefits of coconut oil I was hooked, bought a couple gallons.
The popularity of quad-copters has brought the price of gimbals down, so I now have a Feiyu Tech Ultra 3 axis gimbal for the GoPro. I’ve been recording hand held test runs on commutes.
I found two malfunctions: First my bottom motor would glitch out and the LED would go red – I opened it up and found the cables were folded harshly. Re-folded them and it works fine. Second the switch on the bottom malfunctioned – as soon as I inserted the batteries the device would start and not shut off until I removed the batteries. I turned the coil in the switch cap a bit and that has been working fine since.
I have several mounting ideas, but the only mount I could find was on Thingiverse. A 3D model of a snap mount designed to slip into the GoPro foot.
I took two files, one straight and one angled mount, to the library for my first 3D print. We had a setback at about the 20th layer, could have been the bed temp – could be the machine/software – could be an array of things. The library staff are hashing it out and they’ll email me when it’s done.
So, after about 6 months – I have a functional card that can handle all the GoPro3B formats. Now I’m trying to cram in these lost months of trial and error.
Lesson one turned out to be CineForm, GoPro’s post production software just cant handle 4k Cin processing.
Lesson two turned out to be that Polar Pro’s snap on GPH3 polarizer filter looks like hazy crap.
