Building a Gimbal (Part 3)

We continue to use the Storm32 board, version 3.2 to get our gimbal going. We managed to dramatically reduce the jitters by moving the IMU closest to the motor controlling the pitch of the camera. What was happening was there was a positive feedback loop where vibrations from the motors were picked up by the IMU and amplified. This caused the unwanted jittering of the gimbal. Now the IMU is placed in the location were it experiences the lowest amplitude vibrations from the motor.
