Car gimbal failure

Car gimbal failure

To be correct this is not gimbal but grip failure. Check the video and analysis below.

video: Camera gimbal fails

We don’t know the case from the inside but as it related to accident we will try to make analysis by the video.

  1. First of all, we can see that gimbal is sliding to the right and left like it was not properly fixed in the gymbal lock.
  2. On the base part of the gimbal there two mounting eye which act as backup connection in case when lock fails.

If gymbal would be attached to the mounting eyes, even after lock fails, gymbal would hang on the belay.
