Like a TBS Discovery Pro




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.


The first flight with this custom


Thank you for reading

  • 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?

  • @Gary, Thanks, keep in touch for the video

    @Taylor, good luck

    @Euan, I dont understand you Euan !?
