Can any brushless outrunner motor be used as a gimbal stabilization motor? Answered
From looking at the construction of the gimbal motors, they do not appear to be much different than a standard brushless motor. However, they are able to be controlled like servo's, and I do not understand how. Does anyone have experience at these? I do not understand how a motor ment to spin fast with lowish torque, (high KV, as some may call that, or think of that) can be used to precisely control position, other than downwearing and feedback control.
Here is a video showing what I mean. Notice how slow that motor turns without gears? and I know they must have a lot of torque to be stabilizing a hefty camera.
