Homemade Drone Gimbal (WIP)
My brother and I sought a way to capture aerial photography and video using products most people have access to. Using a $65 drone and homemade vibration reducing gimbal system, we were able to capture clear footage and live transmission using a second cellphone for video calling. By isolating the phone from the body of the drone using layers of foam and spring-steel we eliminated most of the vibration. I envision this inexpensive approach for mapping or survey work in third world nations where access to an expensive drone is not financially possible.
