This is the PARIS Sirius™® Gimbal control board v4r6 - PARIS Sirius™® 2 +1 axis outputs - Used to stabilise the gimbal - this board is preprogrammed and calibrated. Requires 5v 3amps to operate. Power can be supplied via the Primary PARIS board TRG PIN or via aseparate uBEC 5v 3amp.
Uses the IDG3200 Gyro and BMA180Acc to maintain the Gimbal in a level position - NOW (April 26 2012) also INCLUDES 5883L MAG ! this gives the option for Heading lock of the gimbal when the board is mounted on the gimbal - Overall the PARIS Sirius™ is in auto leveling mode - smoothing any suden yaw movements using the servo output PIDs (yaw) for PIN 3 - but from radio switch setup and selection the pilot and a 2nd person controlling the 3 axis gimbal can now achive YAW lock - rotation of the gimbal is not tied to the rotation (YAW) of the copter - this does require retractable landing gear for 360° panning and lock to be 100% useful. Requires a knowledge of Arduino code to program the servo travel, direction (see below) - use of the JAVA GUI etc.... PARIS v4r6 features onboard USB mini connector.
Does NOT require any connection to RC Rx to function - Providing it is kept LEVEL for 4 secs after power up will function independantly of any RC connection. The Roll function of a gimbal is the primary tool - Pilots skills can minimise any sudden pitch movements of this can be edited in post production easily with good pilot skills in the first place. Yaw axis control requires a dedicated receiver be attached (for 2nd Pilot) to use his Tx to fly the camera.
In this video you can see Tretch5000 (USA Multiwiicopter Pro-Pilot) panning around himself using a PARIS Sirius™® GIMBAL controller - normally (without a gimbal control board) the video would be tilted to achive sideways flight - the PARIS gimbal is holding the camera/horizon line level in this video above - and has 2 axis active here. He has also mixed the Tx Aux channels to allow him to use his Tx to swivel the camera down at the end. So he has a separate flight control controlling the helicopter - 6 channels from his Radio Ch1-6 go direct tot he Flight control CPU (not to the gimbal board) - then he has a single ch7 wire going from his Rx Ch7 - a longer wire - going down to the PARIS ELEV input - to the PARIS Sirius™ controll board - it is mounted on the gimbal. Then to tilt down - as you see at the end - he set servo speed to 3 secs in his transmitter end-to-end - when he flicks the Ch7 switch on his Tx - it sends an elevator input to the PARIS Sirius™ gimbal - and the Tilt servo travel thru 90° (this is not autmatically 90° - the pilot set up the servo travel and the Tx programming of ch7 to achive this effect). To calibrate the LEVEL position - Gimbal must LEVEL at power-up for 4 secs.
Gimbal Software is Open Source Code(below) - connect the gimbal servos to Cm1 (gimbal pitch) and Cm2(gimbal roll) - Then alter the values for TILT_PITCH_PROP and TILTROLL_PROP until your gimbal remain level - reverse the servo by using minus (ie -10) - the default values of 10 needs to be changed to 22 for a Scarab Gimbal.
