HD Air Studio is a leading developer and manufacturer of custom drone gimbal stabilizers, designed to meet the unique requirements of aerial cinematography, inspections, and other commercial and industrial applications.
In addition to single prototype units, we provide a complete design, testing and production service, including small-scale production of gimbals. We also offer a range of off-the-shelf camera gimbal stabilizers and a foldable octocopter UAS. All our solutions are designed, assembled and supported from our headquarters in Poland, EU.
With extensive experience in developing for the broadcast, energy & utilities, mining, logistics, and surveying industries, we can provide you with a bespoke solution when nothing else on the market suits your needs.
Enhanced capabilities with Serial API
All HD Air Studio gimbals fully support Serial API, which allows the controller to communicate with the gimbal’s on-board computer and perform commands defined by the gimbal operator. With Serial API, sophisticated functionality such as active object tracking can be performed, during both remotely-piloted and automated drone missions.
Custom multi-sensor gimbal development
Gimbal for radar
We can design custom gimbals that house two or three different sensor types, such as thermal cameras, LiDAR scanners, FPV cameras, lasers, or radars, allowing users to capture more data in a single flight.
All multi-sensor gimbals are designed to achieve an optimal lift-to-weight ratio, allowing you to enhance data collection efficiency which impacting flight time as little as possible. Gimbal enclosures can also be seamlessly fitted with IP65-rated protection against low-pressure water jets, condensation and spray.
Our expert engineering team is highly skilled in a range of production technologies, including CNC machining, FDM and 3D printing. We can design and manufacture any gimbal camera stabilizer according to your specifications, with adjustable parameters including:
Size: the gimbal size can be adjusted to suit the sensor and the drone platforms
Materials: we can suggest a variety of materials according to particular applications
Motors: we select high quality motors that will carry any payload
Sliprings: motor sliprings can be customized with number and diameter of wires
Weatherproofing: we can design your gimbal to be resistant to water, dust and humidity
Anti-vibration: we can ensure that your gimbal will be unaffected by even the smallest of vibrations
Step-by-Step Custom Gimbal Development
We undergo a comprehensive development process to create your custom drone camera mount and gimbal solutions, with every step carried out according to the strictest of quality requirements.
Project Analysis – we gather your requirements and the specifics of your drone platform and application, and create a precise product specification
Prototyping – we undertake all electrical, mechanical and software engineering under one roof, rigorously test the prototype, and adjust as necessary
Final Production – we work with you to ensure that the final product meets and even exceeds your needs in terms of functionality and appearance
Onboarding & Evaluation – we provide you with all required information and documentation, and continue to evaluate the solution in the field and suggest improvements
Custom Gimbal Applications
We have developed high-performance custom gimbals that allow users to gather vibration-free video footage for autonomous inspections of critical infrastructure, wind turbines, offshore oil & gas platforms, and more.
Opting for a custom gimbal stabilizer, ensures compatibility with an existing drone platform and allows different sensors to be selected depending on the project requirements and environmental factors.
Our gimbals are fully compatible with third-party software, allowing you to easily perform tasks such as real-time data retrieval, live object tracking, and parameter adjustment.
Our custom gimbals for aerial film and video production allow you to capture undisturbed 4K footage even with long lenses, with excellent resistance to electromagnetic radio interferences often present in TV & film studios.
We developed a heavy-lift gimbal for a Sony P50 box camera, with wireless zoom-focus control, for a filming agency. Designed to work seamlessly on a 3D cable system, the gimbal was designed with a long operation time on a single battery allowing it to work smoothly throughout the duration of the shoot.
Robotics and R&D Projects
We can deliver unique stabilizing gimbal solutions designed from the ground up for innovative projects such as robotic eyes. Gimbals are programmable via SimpleBGC and ROS (Robot Operating System) software.
The Infinity MR-Pro is a lightweight UAV gimbal camera stabilizer with powerful motors that is ideal for carrying a wide range of DSLR cameras. Featuring unlimited 360-degree pan rotation, the DSLR drone gimbal can be attached to either the top or underside of the drone.
The Sonda X8 is a versatile octocopter UAS with coaxial rotors and a convenient folding design. With the ability to carry a variety of different cameras and other payloads, the multirotor UAV is ideal for a range of missions, including BVLOS flights.
