After combining my retracts from my previous blog post and my conversion plate to turn the 2-axis into a 3-axis gimbal

then also adding a mounting plate for the Storm32 BCG controller, further testing and setup goes great so far

Also did some tests using the spektrum sat option for the second operator to control the gimbal movements remotely (with possible future retract control also)

further settings to be done to fix the tilt upward issue I’m having yet
