I want to stabilize MOBIUS camera for smooth aerial video, So I start to build gimbal for it.
At this time, 2D brushless gimbal is cheap but also have good performance.
and these are my choose for build my 2D brushless gimbal.
+ Turnigy 2D brushless gimbal frame kit for MOBIUS
+ AX-2206 gimbal motor (included with Turnigy gimbal frame kit)
+ Martinez V3 gimbal controller

Start date: Aug 6, 2015
I assembly TURNIGY gimbal kit that included with motor AX-2206 in kit.
and i use MARTINEZ V3 controller for control gimbal motor.

Aug 18, 2015 Build ND filter for MOBIUS lens that use for reduce JELLO effect.

Aug 20, 2015
SUCCEED !!! Finally I can kill all JELLO from video of MOBIUS @1080p 30fps
KILL all jello by use ND filter and set camera exposure+

Aug 22, 2015 build tool for balance propeller for decrease vibration.

Aug 22,2015
after do propeller balance, my tricopter was less vibration, MOBIUS+2D gimbal working very well. NO JELLO

Aug 23, 2015 MOBIUS – Auto Exposure Lock (AEL)

Aug 27, 2015 === FINAL SOLUTION ===
I use CH6 switch to control camera pitch angle
CH6 OFF, camera pitch -15 degree (for flying)
CH6 ON, camera pitch -60 degree (for look to ground)

To do …
+ Wiring CH6 signal from receiver connect to A1 pin of Martinez V3 board
+ Config gimbal to work with RC_PITCH control
+ Setting min-max angle of camera pitch to defined degree

Test MOBIUS aerial video at pitch -15 and -60 degree
