Nobody has tested it, and it's hard to tell from the pictures

The video out cable will add weight in the back, forcing you to move the Mobius forward to balance things out. There might be enough space for a 90 degrees video out

But, unless you build a custom video out with super-flexible, thin silicon wires, the video out will completely upset the gimbal

On a side note, that gimbal will require you to permanently bond the Mobius to the support, since it does not use the Mobius holder. And, before you find the right balance, expect a lot of experiments and frustration. Even if you use a removable adhesive pad, it will take so long to find the right spot that you will not want to swap the camera out

The right design for a Mobius gimbal is one that uses a Mobius holder (either the original one, too heavy, though, or a custom-made one. Once you balance that setup, you can easily remove and reinsert the Mobius as many times as you want

the video out I use, I have stripped the black plastic covering from the wires so I just have the small video wires only. then I would route the wires so that they are across the pivot point of the motor with enough slack to allow for the rotation of the motor. I haven't done this, but I would think someone has.

I've done this with a Mobius on a modded Tarot 2d gimbal and it works well. Rather surprisingly, there is less jitter with the wires attached, they seem to have a damping effect.

Do you think this would be able to be mounted on a TBS Disc Pro (not mounting on the undercarriage)?

Should be no reason why you couldn't mount it with the damper plate orientated to the vertical position or even through 180 degree so the damper plate is on the bottom.

I bit the bullet on this one so I should have it within a couple of weeks and I will try all ways of mounting as I want to use on both planes and multi's,

I will wait for HK to stock in either EU or UK warehouse - delays and tax are a nightmare.
