35 G2 produced in 2017, that's 15 less than 2016 (34 R22 produced in 2017).
The launch of the G4 program is not planned till one year or even two.

,...and note, Gimbel actually wants to sell the G2, Robinson on the other hand, would be happy if the R22 went the way of the dodo, and everyone started training in the R44 Cadet.

Royal Aero Society Lecture

During his lecture last year at the Royal Aeronautical Society, Bruno actually said that there are no fixed time scales for the G4 yet and he is very undecided about engines. The company is focusing on the drone first.

The G4 is likely to be quite a way into the future I'm afraid.

Of course it is. That will make G2 sales look like a drop in the ocean.

Camera Mount

Anyone know more about the camera mount as seen in this Cabri photo from Heli-Expo? ShotOver is the camera company. Looks like it would go in place of the lower left plexiglass piece.

Also, with the so the R44 will continue to have no direct competitors then, that's a shame.

The Royal Aeronautical Society does have an audio of this but it is not possible to find it easily from google.

The Royal Aeronautical Society's video/audio index page is not being correctly scanned by google. I think they would assist their mission if they got that fixed.



1.
Searching google for -

royal aeronautical society guimbal
does not return a page with the audio on it.

The page -

is not found.

2.
The "title" on soundcloud does not contain anything about the content of the talk.

AeroSociety Podcast
Cierva Named Lecture 2017
No mention of Guimbal.

Can someone please pass this to the relevant Royal Aeronautical Society webmaster or other authority? These issues obviously apply to all of their talks, not just this one.

Thanks.

Not sure where you got "TopShot" from, but the correct company name is visible in a bunch of places..

The camera gimbal company is Shotover (Shotover Camera Systems). They are one of the leaders in gyrostabilized gimbals. They're NZ-based with offices in the US as well. They currently offer larger gimbals (K1 for large lenses, oversize cinema cameras, the F1 for smaller cinema cameras and ENG use) and smaller gimbals (G1 for drones, cable cam and remote head use).

This new gimbal is believed to be called the B1. It hasn't been officially announced, and more information will be coming out at NAB (Nat'l Association of Broadcasters) conference in Las Vegas next month.

Actually the M1 is going to be unveiled at NAB not the B1. The B1 was something Brad came up with and decided to just put the mockup on the G2 at Heli Expo to see what the interest was. He also has the U1 which is the drone.

I think Bruno should first correct all the mistakes on G2 before thinking on any other project!.... I couldnít believe if not witnessed the several ridiculous and danger mistakes from a manufacter like guimbal maked on Cabri G2!
For a quick example the oilseal from the MGB not having a all or a stoper...and being possible to came out in mid flight and losing all the oil on MGB....
another example the manifold pressure hose fittings smashing the nylon hose and gets lose and leaking ...

He is in almost flat calm conditions and doesn't mention wind until he has been round the peak several times - he should do another video with 20 kts of wind and see how well that profile goes.

Seems that the pilot flying judged the altitude better than the instructor.

I can't find any video of that lecture. That's too bad, it seems that during the presentation they were able to see some sketch or rough ideas of the G4.
Is the video available somewhere?

I had the dilemma of cost over safety and decided to go with the Cabri and after a 12 month break, Iím just about to restart and hopefully complete my training at Helicentre Aviation in Leicester.
