Hi all,

 

I have a TBS Discovery for some time now, very good quad.

But when I saw arriving Discovery Pro I said I want it!
I almost had a heart attack.
So I decided to custom mine.

I had to make a well-considered simple and removable system.

So I bought a cheap gimbal for testing, this:

Here is my first test, I posted there some time.

 

 

Considering the quality of the nacelle (plug & play), I decided to keep it and modify it to TBS.

 

I wanted to have a system in line with the Discovery, so I got started in the measurement and design to allow this.

 

I removed the unnecessary things.

 

 

 

Then I printed my adaptation in 3d printing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The advantage of this system, I unscrew a screw and two cables unplugged, gimbal power supply and servo wire gimbal, and I can remove the gimbal to go for a real FPV flight.
That the Discovery Pro does not allow, because the gimbal is unremovable.

I am very satisfied of results.

Great adaptation Polak74 and a really nice description of the conversion.

I look forward to seeing your video.

Thinking about doing something similar for my Flip.

That's a CoG nightmare, surely?

Having the camera that far forward will interfere with your centre of gravity, surely? Ive got a disco and its just ok with the gopro in place - you must have quite a forward lean?
