Pronunciation: /ˈdʒɪmb(ə)l

A device for keeping an instrument as a compass or chronometer horizontal in a vessel or aircraft, typically of rings pivoted at right

Origin:    Late 16th (used in the plural denoting parts in machinery): variant of gimmal . itself a variant of Middle English gemel hinge, finger ring can be divided into two rings’, Old French gemel ‘twin’, Latin gemellus . diminutive of .

Ah …. don’t ya just love a bit of Yes folks, the word of today is and after a bit of thought yesterday I got mine out and played with it.

So does this gimbal-thingy do Well, in a nutshell, it holds a camera perfectly steady in and roll while the mounting is moving around. These are intended for use on drones, those helicopters that you see flying but one look and the old grey matter in …… wouldn’t that be fun on a bike!

And that brings me to yesterday a half-hour blitz in the barn had a plate made and another had the whole thing fitted, up and tested on the left hand – which isn’t too bad given the gimbal has sat in its box since delivery two ago.

At lunch time the start-up was well under way …… pat down the ‘testicles, spectacles, wallet’n – check . key-on and wait for the to finish its self-test – check . up the motor and before the gloves go on – to record! And this m’dear is an edited video of ‘Tarot Test 1′ – I like the sound the disks make at the end of the video!

Now the keen eyed among you notice that in bends – constant radius bends – the begins to roll in the same and this had me stumped for a while. I it might just be settings in but not being sure I decided to on it.

In the end I think it’s to do with the that ‘verticle’ changes the bike is in equilibrium in a turn whole ‘leaning’ thing) and tricks the sensor into that ‘up’ and ‘down’ moved – so the camera begins to into the turn. Anyway I you enjoyed watching some or all of the as much as I did filming it!
