GoPro Wire Rope Mount with Furniture Coasters



 I built this Wire Rope GoPro mount out of a couple of Furniture leg coasters, a Bicycle Brake cable and some electrical brass wire connectors removed from their plastic housing. Test flown this morning and here is the result.

I'm very pleased with the video as I have tried many ways to remove the rolling shutter effect previously and this is by far the most effective. The video is shot on a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition @1080p 60fps. I have also briefly tested it on my old GoPro Hero 1 @1080p 30fps and got similar results.

I'm flying the wire mount on a Reptile 500 quad Frame from and its on the APM2.5 stock 2.91 quad firmware.

Heh heh, I was thinking about how to adapt this wire suspension mount into a 2 axis gimbal myself! I have some ideas floating in my head at the moment. Will definitely let you know once I come out with it. BTW, your personal blog is pretty cool! You have very interesting projects going on.

Here's the video after applying Deshaker V3 filter on it to remove the jitters.

I decided to get a ready made 2 axis gimbal.
