FAQ

Is the SD card provided?

Yes, a 16GB, U3, micro SD is provided with the camera

What are the rotation angles of the gimbal?

Evolve uses a 3-axis gimbal for an optimum stabilization of the camera.

The gimbal has a mechanical pitch of -135° to +45° operates at 1.5 to 80 °/s with a control rate of 1000Hz. The pitch is controllable through the ground station at a range of -100° to +20

What is FOC?

The motor controller features a Field Oriented Control (FOC) whose driver provides numerous advantages including:

– Faster response time

– More power output (10W)

– Reduction of power consumption by 70%

– Decreased motor temperature

– More stable performance in wider temperature environment
