XK Detect X380 Drone Generic Gimbal Electrical Wiring Setup
Here’s how to wire up a cheap $45 gimbal to the XK Detect X380 quadcopter drone. Although these cheap gimbals are advertised for DJI and GoPro, they also work with a little adjustment on just about any gimbal capable quadcopter, such as the XK Detect X380. It also works with just about any small sized action camera, such as the Runcam HD http://shrsl.com/?~b43z, Mobius, XiaoMi Yi, or even GoPro ;-). Find the X380 here http://shrsl.com/?~9j3z
and find the gimbal here http://shrsl.com/?~9j40
Or find the complete setup here http://shrsl.com/?~9j41
Here’s the configuration software for it http://www.basecamelectronics.com/files/v10/SimpleBGC_GUI_2_2b2.zip
And instructions for it http://www.basecamelectronics.com/files/v10/SimpleBGC_manual_2_2_eng.pdf
Here’s the X380 pinout for connecting the gimbal http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/266239X380ports.jpg
And this fellow shows how to configure it. But all I really needed to do was just reduce the pitch/roll power settings to 110/70, then write the settings, and mine worked fine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clX-FC7m13Y
