The original Phantom v1 version of the DJI Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal for the GoPro HERO3 & HERO3+ is a 2-axis brushless gimbal for the GoPro HERO3 or HERO3+ action camera. It allows you to shoot ultra-smooth aerial footage with your GoPro HERO3. It features a lightweight aluminum alloy design and a built-in IMU module. The Zenmuse H3-2D inherited the core algorithm from the Zenmuse Z15 gimbal, and it's compatible with multiple DJI flight control systems. Its functionality can be updated through firmware upgrades as well.
Note: This version of the Zenmuse H3-2D is not compatible with the DJI Phantom 2; for the Phantom 2 use itemcode number DJPH2O. Additionally, to use the Zenmuse with the stock Phantom an upgraded kit must be first installed, and installation of the upgrade kit will require soldering. The kit itemcode number is DJUPGRADEKIT and it is available from B&H.
2-Axis Brushless Gimbal
The Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal is designed for the GoPro HERO3 or HERO3+. It's widely used in film and television productions, advertising aerial photography, etc. Even if the aircraft is in high-speed flight, it can still stabilize and control the GoPro camera precisely with the highest stability. The precision of control angle is within the range of ±0.08°, so picture or video output can reach the best quality.
Customized for GoPro HERO3
The H3-2D gimbal supports remote start/stop shooting and video transmission (video downlink required) for the GoPro HERO3. More features will be supported by future firmware upgrades.
Compatible with DJI Flight Control Systems
The H3-2D gimbal is compatible with many DJI flight control systems. It can adjust the roll and pitch angle according to the accurate control of the Gimbal feedback and communicate with the MC in real-time. It supports WooKong-M, NAZA-M V1, NAZA-M V2, and Phantom. It will also support Ace One, WooKong-H, and NAZA-H. It doesn't support NAZA-M LITE and in order to work with the Phantom, an upgraded kit is required. The kit itemcode number is DJUPGRADEKIT and it is available from B&H.
Core Technology Inherited from the Zenmuse
The H3-2D gimbal inherited the core algorithm from the Zenmuse Z15 gimbal and the unmanned aircraft flying attitude stability control algorithm. Combined with the high precision sensors and brushless motors, the DJI Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal provides pixel level stabilized footage.
Independent IMU Module
The independent high-precision IMU module provides precise attitude data and the closed-loop control gives improved control accuracy. Without the requirement of complex installation and connection of many wires, it is also easy to assemble and remains stable when in flight.
Lightweight Aluminum Design
The aluminum alloy material and innovative mechanical design makes the gimbal lightweight. It weighs only 8.1 oz with the GoPro HERO3 attached. The structural design of the aluminum frame guarantees the strength of the gimbal.
Works with Phantom & Flame Wheel
The mechanical design, weight, and power supply will match the Phantom and Flame Wheel perfectly. The Phantom transmitter can be easily upgraded to give the pitch (tilt) control function of the gimbal, with a customized slider. No additional receiver channels are needed; it just uses the additional MC channels.
The functionality can be easily updated by online firmware upgrades.
