One of the biggest obstacles to capturing polished video from a multi-rotor RC aircraft is camera shake. Wind turbulence buffets the aircraft, and even on a still day there is always rotor-incurred vibration to contend with. If you are recording with the GoPro HERO4 Black and using a multi-rotor with a DJI flight controller installed, the Zenmuse H4-3D Gimbal is the solution. This 3-axis, brushless motor gimbal corrects for pitch and roll, and allows for tilting of -130 degrees to +45 degrees. It can power from the flight battery, and for Phantom 2 installations uses the aircraft's integrated GCU. An optional GCU is available separately for other models. The H4-3D is compatible with the A2, WooKong-M, Naza-M, Naza-M V2, and Phantom 2 flight control systems.Pre-CalibratedThe H4-3D arrives pre-calibrated for the GoPro HERO4 Black camera - once installed, no additional configuration steps are requiredNote: The H4-3D is specifically balanced for the GoPro HERO4 Black -- it will not work with the HERO3, HERO3+, or HERO4 SilverAircraft CompatibilityThe H4-3D works out-of-the-box with the Phantom 2 as the Phantom 2 features a built-in gimbal control unit (GCU). In addition, it can be used with many other aircraft when combined with an independent GCU module (available separately). The gimbal can be used with multi-rotors that have the following flight control systems:A2WooKong-MNAZA-MNAZA-M V2Note: The NAZA-M LITE is not supported. Additionally, the NAZA-M V2 PMU must be used if using a NAZA-M V1 flight controllerIndependent IMUThe inertial measurement unit (IMU) is essential for the gimbal to be able to stabilize the camera. It senses motion, using this data to instruct the servo motors which direction to move. For maximum precision, this data gets updated every millisecondFirmware UpdatableAs software updates get released, DJI will make them available to end users in the form of free firmware updates. Simply connect the H4-3D to a computer running the assistant softwareOptional GCU ModuleFor use in aircraft that - unlike the Phantom 2 - do not have integrated GCUs, an optional GCU (gimbal control unit) is available separately
