Controlling CC3D gimbal movements using esp8266
« on: August 17, 2019, 04:34:31 pm »
Hello I just wonder after playing with my newly build CC3D 2 axis servo gimbal, if there is a possibility to control movements using esp8266 module instead traditional radio receiver as a PWM signal provider to receiver port.
Thank you

Hi,

A esp8266 can output two PWM signals (like ESP-01), control can be done using a small web page with sliders or input values (no need to develop a small app in this case) periodically or on demand sent to esp.

I think the easy way is use arduino for coding but can be also done using nodeMCU and a LUA script.

There is plenty of IOT examples on the internet used for RGB dimmer like this one

Will need a small amount of changes to match your needs.
