Why do all this gimbal reversing? It works so nicely now, and I didn’t need to design the whole thing from scratch!

Smart Camera Gimbal Bot – scanlime:027

In this episode, we’re building the Tuco Flyer bot itself, and giving it the power of computer vision so it can look around and follow my cat.

Feiyu Gimbal Serial Hack – scanlime:021

Join this reverse-engineering journey where I wind through software and hardware in a Feiyu Tech Mini3D gimbal, in order to give it serial controls more suitable for my Tuco Flyer robot project. I start out by taking apart the wire protocol used by the settings app, then after accidentally breaking the gimbal we have to dig deeper into the firmware to fix it again.

This edit has been compiled from live streams between April 8 and May 12, 2017.

scanlime:019 / Gimbal SDI Camera Mod

This is a mechanical and electrical modification to the Feiyu Mini3D 3-axis brushless gimbal, so it can hold a Crazyfire HZ-100P SDI camera and LIDAR-Lite distance sensor. Now I can use this small and inexpensive gimbal for the new live streaming cat robot!
