At last totally jello free for about 1 dollar 1080p at 30 fps

I decided to make a wire suspension with solid electrical copper wire.
It is very soft and should dampen vibrations well.
Also the rubber/plastic insulation won't hurt.

I attached two bits of foam to the Phantom and ran the wires in between making sure they would not touch the screws running through the foam and the plastic plate that holds the foam to the Phantom.

The GoPro goes on top of the platform. In this way the wire can be longer and the GoPro won't stick out under the landing gear. The platform is a plastic end cap of a carton tube, the kind you send posters in. The GP is attached to the platform with 2 rubber bands (in case one snaps) running through 2 slots in the platform and held in place by half a clothes pin.

The whole setup feels solid and flexible at the same time

Hmm, I added 4 attachments, photo's, can't see them anywhere...
I'll put them on my ftp server in stead...

I'm very pleased with the result:
