3-Axis Gimbal Controller BaseCam Simple BGC 32-Bit


The Simple BGC v.3.0 32 Bit Gimbal controller can be used for building high-quality 3-axis camera stabilizing systems which can be mounted to UAV and for building handheld camera stabilizers.


BGC 3.0 32-bit 3-axis Brushless Gimbal Controller Specifications
Firmware V3.0

  • 32-bit MCU — ARM Cortex M4. Effectively calculates the complex tasks for 3-axis stabilization.
  • Allows camera control with the RC or analog joystick.
  • Use several switchable profiles for different modes of operation
  • Supports variety of RC protocols: PWM, Sum-PPM, spectrum and s-bus.
  • Battery voltage monitoring, compensating voltage drop in the PID-regulator.
  • Low battery alarm (output to 5V active buzzer).
  • Increased number of inputs for controlling signals + 3 additional reserved input/output AUX1-AUX3.
  • Can supply up to 1A current for external devices on the 5V power line.
  • Dedicated UART-socket to connect optional Bluetooth module
  • Reverse-polarity protection, overheat and over current protection
  • USB interface for the PC connection, to configure, control and upgrade firmware.
  • Graphical user interface to manage the settings. Windows / OS X / Linux versions.
  • Control through the Serial-protocol using dedicated API.
  • Improved attitude estimation algorithms
  • Optional second IMU, that will increase the short-term precision of the stabilization 10x-30x times and  will make stable work in any frame position.
  • Size of the board: 50×50 mm
  • Distance between the mounting holes: 45 mm
  • Diameter of the mounting holes: 3 mm
  • Power supply voltage: 8–25 V (3s-5s LiPo) Not Included
  • Maximum motor current: 1,5 A
  • 5V output current to power external devices: up to 1 A
