Using the latest brushless gimbal motor and controller technology, our gimbals unlock your camera's full potential to create extremely smooth aerial footage, by seamlessly stabilizing pitch and roll axes.
Loaded with the latest firmware and PID settings that we know work well with the Hero 3, you'll be able to use the gimbal without ever connecting it to a computer. Using official AlexMos/BaseCam gimbal controllers means that their team of designers is working continuously to improve/add controller features, rather than open source controllers whose development are community-reliant. *SEE NOTE #1 BELOW*
No adjusting arms back and forth. No fiddling with sub-millimeter camera-position adjustments. Our gimbal frame has been designed and manufactured to ensure the Hero 3 is perfectly balanced in both axes, with no user input necessary.
When new 3-axis upgrade modules are released (soon, we're told!), a 3rd motor can easily be installed to allow full yaw stabilization and manual control. *SEE NOTE #2 BELOW*
Our Hero 3-specific mounting system allows quick, easy and secure camera installation and removal, while still allowing full access to both main buttons and the USB/SD card. The mount includes an integrated IMU mounting pad
Instead of leaving the controller exposed to the environment, we have encased it in a lightweight, custom-manufactured, plastic case. Embossed labels on the case indicate the roll/pitch motor, power, and IMU locations.
Constructed from a combination of aluminum and ABS plastic, our frame is both very lightweight and very structurally resilient. Unlike carbon fiber and G10 gimbal frames which tend to fracture when violently crashed, the aluminum components on our gimbal will instead simply deform, and can easily be bent back into shape. The frame, motors, vibration isolator, controller, IMU, and hardware weigh 200g.
Using a high-quality wire isolation system, the Hero 3 is kept isolated from typical air-frame vibrations which cause the dreaded "Jello" effect in videos. Additional silicone damping grommets are included to allow further isolation, if necessary. *SEE NOTE #3 BELOW*
Our Hero 3 gimbal was specifically-designed to be mounted directly onto the DJI Phantom's existing screw holes - with no landing gear extensions required Additionally, care was taken to ensure that the center of gravity (COG) of the entire gimbal assembly can be placed directly under the Phantom's COG, eliminating the need to adjust NAZA COG settings.
The top mounting plate has plenty of holes/slots to allow mounting of our gimbal on most popular frames. All necessary mounting hardware and tools are provided.

1. Pre-tuned for Hero 3 with 3S power supply. Using a different power supply will require tuning adjustment. Firmware updates, GUI, tuning information, wiring diagrams, and other information about the gimbal controller can be found at www.simplebgc.com.
2. Landing gear extensions may be necessary to use a 3-axis gimbal with small air-frames, like the Phantom.
3. All vibration frequencies/amplitudes require a different vibration isolation system for perfect vibration attenuation. The materials we've chosen work for the airframes that we've tested, but it is impossible to accommodate all frames and vibration characteristics. It is STRONGLY recommended that vibration reduction procedures be followed prior to mounting any gimbal. The less vibration that the isolator has to deal with, the better!
