I would like to lower my Gopro gimbal on the IRIS+ quadcopter by about an inch so that I can take straight-out videos without having the front two propellers in view. By shooting videos with the Gopro pointed straight out, I will also be minimizing the undesirable fisheye effect of these cameras. Can anyone suggest an effective method they used to lower their Gopro gimbal on the IRIS+, without creating noticeable vibrations in their videos from the modification?
Thanks for your help!
I did it! I used a Glad Container and lowered my Gimbal. I had to use wooden rods on the legs to make them longer. Not a fan of that, but this will work when I need it.
Here's my test video
I use some larger carbon fiber rods and just slipped them over the legs and taped them to stay on. I drilled holes in the container to help reduce wind resistance. It works, but I'd really like a way to reduce the weight of the legs.
I'm trying to do the same thing, but haven't quite figured it out. Will let you know if I do.
Jan and Gordon,
Which gimbal are you using?
Also please check out IMP Concepts
I have tested the suspension plates for the FY-G3 gimbal and the tension plate version will lower it.
Using the Tarot. I'd love to lower it about 4 inches.
