Kyosho Zeal Vibration Absorption Sheet Z8006

I cut 4 squares and mounted the APM to the frame.  The APM is on there solid and minimizes vibration.  YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS.

What are the best mounting tape/foam or method for mounting a pixhawk? (Mounted it backwards at first with the original foam squares).

Pretty sure cloverleaf antennas on 433 or 915mhz is not the best option. For 433, you should use a Dipole or a Monople like the one linked below[1].

The antenna in the pic looks like a 5.8ghz antenna, which will probably perform horribly if it's plugged into a 433 or 915mhz tx.

I am a documentary photographer, I prefer to use damping to obtain subjective images. Gimbal will bring another kind of vision, need to more load.

To mount the gimbal shown below I printed a small bracket but it's probably easier to just bend up a bit of ali or similar...

I managed to attach my Tarot gimbal to the top plate using the (more recent) Tarot anti-vibration mount.  There's just enough room so the gimbal "floats" without touching anything...
