Question
Mounting gimbal on F450

Hi,

I have a stock DJI F450 with standard DJI landing legs and a goodluckbuy 2 axis gimbal for gopro currently mounted with zip ties to the base plate overhang at the front.

I've also ordered a DYS 3 axis gimbal for gopro.

I would like to tidy up the gimbal mounting when I put the DYS on, preferably using screws to attach to the base plate rather than zip ties as it looks like a bit of a bodge job at the moment.

Is there any standard mounting plates out there that will allow me to mount the DYS?

I saw this for the zenmuse but not sure it will work with the DYS:

Thanks

How are you getting on with it erik?

Do the screws on the dys gimbal fit the holes on the landing gear base plate?

HobbyKing Quanam 450 class retracts

Sorry folks, have been too busy flying and building my new craft. They were relatively easy to install. I have a DJI 450 so I did not want to drill through the plate so I used 20# double stick tape and wire ties. I now have 45+ takeoff and landings on the gear. You do need to keep up with maintenance and inspect the wire ties, tape and set screws, I recommend at every battery change because they do loosen up, even with locktite.
