SkyFish Smart Gimbal. It totally lives up to its name.

Smart Gimbal’s encoded motors connect to SkyNode, our powerful onboard computer, to deliver unique precision angle measurement and dual multi-sensor control that fully expands to your specific project needs.


Complete control in planning and real time

With SkyNode and Smart Gimbal, you can program or manually control everything from camera apertures to LiDAR data capture optimization for more efficient processing. Program data capture on and off to get all the rich data when you need it, and drastically reduce redundant processing when you don’t.

A special gimbal demands special cameras

Few optical cameras have sensors powerful enough for commercial projects. That's why your SkyFish Smart Gimbal ships with the incredible 42MP Sony Alpha 7R, along with thermal imaging from the FLIR Vue Pro. Explore other compatible cameras in Tech Specs below.

Add your own sensors

Use the supplied Sony Alpha 7R and FLIR Vue Pro, along with your own additional sensors to create hyper accurate layered 2D maps and 3D models.

Perform intricate inspections and surveys

Powered by SkyNode, Smart Gimbal responds to all available data sources, generating intricate inspection and survey data across a wide range of situations and environments.

Automatic tracking on steroids

Supported by our planning software, SkyControl, it’s easy to identify target subjects, avoid visual distractions and generate precision orbits for complex moves.

Smart design you can feel on the ground

Smart Gimbal's uniquely located radio means ground control enjoys faster responses, higher bandwidth and even longer range depending on power and antenna.

Try out Smart Gimbal with your current drone

SkyFish was built to be modular. So SkyNode and Smart Gimbal don’t only work with SkyFish products. You can also bring SkyNode’s precision control to any Pixhawk 2.1 or DJI A3-based machine.
