Ican3d, what kind of pan/tilt bracket were you using for your 808? What did you use before the 3d printed one? Thanks!

I didn't use any bracket for 808, i just directly screw in pan servo horn below the 808 casing, thats it. Just pan around.
But now i got this:


NEW LIGHWEIGHT PAN-TILT FOR DRIFTER. SUPPORT 808 #16 HD.
I just finish 3D printing and assembly yesterday. Did some two days test, great FOV view up to landing gear side which give me great low altitude viewing. My total flying weight still at 660gram with installed pan-tilt. Finally i enjoy full view without having to bank around to check the ground. I will make this file available for free download for those who have 3D printers which you will download at my website: http://www.supermotoxl.com after i finish with the documentation page.
Small size, compact and lightweight.

I would love to have a smaller version of the Drifter. Or a similar ultralight.

Making one from parts like this Beaver would be great at about 800mm.
