Gimbal Operation

At the heart of the Vector Kite revolution is the proprietary Premier Thrust Gimbal. The Thrust Gimbal provides two important functions:

1. It enables the motor's thrust line to be completely maneuverable in relation to the kite's centerline. By placing the motor in a specialized assembly that provides full two axis pivoting, powerful thrust can be instantly directed by the pilot. Pitch, yaw, roll and forward speed are achieved by the combination of up-down and left-right thrust positioning along with fully proportional speed control of the brushless motor.

2. The Gimbal absorbs the high stress and induced strain caused by the gyroscopic movement of the motor and spinning propeller. Servos are thus protected and provided with a long-life environment.
