If you can understand 1/3 of the title of this post, you are a heli-geek. Yesterday I picked up the camera I will be using with my big hexactoper. The copter frame is a Tarot T960.
The Sony NEX-5T (a mirror-less high quality camera) is mounted to the frame via a auto-leveling device called a “gimbal.” That’s the Arris Zhaoyun (Chinese name of course).
I flew twice today. The first flight was pretty smooth and the jello effect (vibrating video) was hardly there. That’s what my current mode is, jello-reduction. Actually I should say jello-elimination.
This afternoon’s flight was more in focus as far as the camera went, but there was way too much jello. Post flight I looked at my remote and it looks like I had my gains turned down, which might have caused the jello. Gains are a fine-tuning setting for the motors. Also, the winds were up, which can also cause vibration issues.
