Hey guys,

i was just wandering - isn't it possible to use other type of stepper motors?

I have a spec here on hand for a certain stepper motor.
I work in a company which uses all different kinds of steppers (from 5 to 24v) for which i have specs.

If someone smarter than me can calculate what is needed or something i can share a specification that is matching and then of course - i have unlimited supply of those motors - i am willing to ship to anyone free of charge (only transport will be paid by whoever wants it).
There are bigger and smaller motors, i have also all kinds of gears, so if needed we can even make it geared or something.

Come on guys - i really want to make a gimbal looking like the original and am willing to help with whatever i can (solidworks, 3d printing, parts).

Whoever is interested - just let me know.

Regards,
Rado

So, i started looking around and found out which is the strongest motor compared to the size - i got the one in the attachment

I would really love to use those - very, very small and with a runcam split system i think we can even use the original gimbal cover.

Motors are brushed, but whatever - if it does the job i dont see an issue.

And a camera i just found and am wondering if it is what it says it is - couldn't find much about it anywhere:

If someone knows it or has tried it please share some info about it, it has not been mentioned here anyway.

Thanks.

I did a bit of reverse engineering and created the Gimbal files a second time. They are now available as IGES files and you can edit them with Fusion 360.

I couldn't test it yet. But now it's possible for all to extend the arms if necessary :)

I like that camera.. looks really compact. It only has 90deg FOV which might be a little tight.. something like 130+ would be better I think.
