After months of extensive testing and fine-tuning at the flying field, we are excited to offer a fast, precise, reliable head-tracker to our customers. It will come preconfigured to work with Motionsic BAG and will be as easy as plug n play, just need to confirm the output channel numbers for pan & tilt in HT GUI is the same as the input channel numbers for trainer setup on RC transmitter.Check it out:How to setup with Spektrum Transmitter:

I guess there’s no way to get head tracking working with the standard DJI FPV RC?

Introducing Motionsic B.A.G. (BadAss Gimbal) – the most practical pan & tilt making head-tracking FPV easy!

Designed for use with DJI FPV Air Unit camera and FPV cameras 20mm width or smaller including Caddx Air Unit, Nebula Pro, Polar, etc. it fits easily under most RC plane canopies 40” wingspan and up. Can also be installed on RC cars, crawlers, boats, or copters for use with a head-tracker to give realistic in-cockpit visual experience.

Attributes:

Compact – fits under most RC plane canopies, needs only cylindrical space 40mm diameter, 50mm tall for full movement with the FPV camera

Easy to install – use included screws and nuts to affix camera and platform to plane in minutes

Smooth/precise movement – includes 2x all-metal gear, digital, premium ball-bearing servos made by Savöx in Taiwan (compare with sh0257mg, $35 retail each).

Check six for bandits – custom servos allow the camera to pan 280° to see 360° (with camera field of view), tilt up 80° down 45°

Easy to adjust camera height/level to scale pilot eye position by adding/removing foam pads and adjusting the tightness of individual screws on corners of the platform.

Dampens vibration – foam pads also dampen vibrations from runway or road surfaces to make the visual experience pleasantly smooth.

UV resistant frame – impregnated with anti-UV polymer so gimbal frame stays robust with prolonged sun exposure.

Shock resistant – built to withstand minor plane crashes and keep on working!

Patent pending, Made in Taiwan

* DJI FPV Air Unit/Camera not included

Over the years, many fellow RC pilots have asked me where I get my pan & tilts. I assume many would like to fly scale HT FPV like I do, but commonly available P & T’s all seem to have obvious faults. So for my 2021 new year resolution, I set out to develop and produce one for sale that solves all the common faults. After much delay, I have achieved that goal!Introducing(BadAss Gimbal) – the most practical pan & tilt making head-tracking FPV easy!Designed for use with DJI FPV Air Unit camera and FPV cameras 20mm width or smaller including Caddx Air Unit, Nebula Pro, Polar, etc. it fits easily under most RC plane canopies 40” wingspan and up.
