A Gimbal

Sorry, what?

Well, i just bought a Gimbal. For those who have no clue what i am talking about: A gimbal is a technical device that keeps a camera stable. With the gimbal i hope to get a new camera perspective at the race track.

I decided for the WG2 from Feyiu Tech, because the price is just really good. The first impression after unpacking the WG2 is, that it looks like a top-quality product. The supporting arms are mad of black (anodized?) metal. The gimbal just has one button to switch on/off and offers some other functions as well.…

New Mounting Stand

..is now ready to use!

The idea is basically pretty cool – unfortunately in the real world there is a lack of quality. The mounting stand itself is very stable. But when it was delivered, there was a  wrong item and after i complained and got the correct one the accuracy of the bore holes on the baseplate is really bad.

Since the MT09 is a low flying vehicle i am convinced that i did not misapply this little gandget.

Biggest Advantage: This Logging Tool is small, really …

Finally i found this little USB Stick. Simply to be connected to the iPad / iPhone and now we can easily exchange data between the i-World and regular PCs, but more important the Tripy!

Money well spent…

New Toys

This one looks almost like a rear mirror, but it is more like the extension of my Smartphone display. Since a couple of days i am a proud TOMTOM Vio owner.

TOMTOM sells the vio as Navigation system for Scooter. Well, the Hornet has two tires, one engine and a handlebar. But i will not call the Hornet a Scooter likewise i call this round something a Navigation system. HOWEVER: It is waterproof, does what it is supposed to and left a good impression after the first couple of days playing around with it.

The installation of the App was …
