Has anyone tried fitting this inside a Go Discover FPV Plane lens or a Skua FPV Plane lens, with a hole cut in bottom of the fuse and hot glued lens to fuse and the gimble suspended above it? I was hoping to get enough of the camera to get about a tilt angle off 30-90 degrees down and maximum pan angle.
yes,,Its true, & i use this In kit form ,with Hk servos.tho In that form. its $13.50 as kit. so You would expect Metal Gears in this, but no ,.I found Good fit, but tight, Makes Hard to Get to Buttons, So I hang it upside down, in front of plane,, tho not the best Place If it gets to touch the ground .id mount next up in front able to still see down at 45* at minimal. & pan is exceading Makes it touchy. well suited , i got now 2.i want to Mount Mobious ,after Lens change i will make a Mount tray to fit, after servo movement limiting , and speed slower to Movement,in Setup of 9xR,
It's best to limit servo movement using the Mixer function in your radio. You just reduce the min and max values to less than -100 and 100. The tilt servo on my unit was burnt/buzzing when i got it, so I replaced that servo. Now tilt is nice and smooth but pan is very jerky. I don't know if replacing the pan servo would resolve that. It looks like the gearing is one-to-one, and gears were only used to shift the rotation point to the center. There are other pan/tilt units that may fit a Mobius better, and now you can load Mobius guts into a "GoPro-style" case (look at New Items pages). Overall, that would probably be better for a Mobius than adapt this as it is not really a stellar product worthy of that much alteration. I'd be very interested in just a TILT mount. I have rudder! What is the value of PAN?
yes . if your Like Myself . you dive on New Items such as that ,, I tell you Mate ,i just had a fly in FPV using 130* on the turnigy recorder camera. it s realy nice view with that lens and new Sky zone goggles ,its amazing better diversity head set, with the range i get now if good increase all Up value. As I was first worried they didnt seam better quality than the Older range Preditor. kept coming back out, untill i worked out the best Lens Combo. And did you get the New 32ch1500mw VTX ,,in new items. is Ausom ,it stoped me getting a Plane this week. Upgraids all round Instead. good stuff
nice to chat with you ...
There is no real vibration isolation with this. The rubber "gasket" is pretty stiff. The holes do not line up with anything standard I've found. Not even the 60x10mm Tarot hanger arms. It would be good if HobbyKing found and offered a ball-isolation plate to fit this and listed it underneath. None of the ones they sell really fit this at all, so this is something you have to MacGyver yourself. Of course, the HD19 is not a stellar FPV cam anyway as the real time video frame changes aspect when the camera is recording! If you are going to fly with one, use a switch and fly mainly with something else, like a "board cam". I think this is an adequate solution if you address vibration yourself and the tilt feature is useful. I have made the channel control work too. That just isn't documented at all. The whole idea of the three pins on each side of the camera is ODD and totally unnecessary. This system should have had 1/4 inch threaded mounts on three sides. It was an engineer not reigned in by marketing!
This mount uses the three pins on each side of the HD19. The TR1 has the same bizaar 3-pin arrangement, so you can use this mount. The problem is that the antenna connector on the TR1 is near the bottom of one side so as you pan, you will be swinging your antenna around! As long as your antenna is pointed down (and you don't use something like a circ. pol unit) you just have to make sure nothing is in the way of where the antenna is going to go. You can use an SMA extension cable and hard-mount your antenna but the extension may reduce the pan range.
Sorry , I can only give this a 3 overall. Both servos chattered and were moving on their own. save the extra cost and buy the kit without servos on amazon.I replaced the servos with these. Turnigy TGY-R5180MG 180 Degree Metal Gear Analog Servo
