3 Axis Gimbal question
I'm relatively new to FPV and stability gimbals, so bear with me if this seems like a newbie question.
I am looking at purchasing a 3 axis gimbal for a quadrotor I'm building. I wanted to incorporate a design with the gimbal mounted in front to prevent the propellers and landing gear from interfering with the image.
My concern is that the gimbals yaw axis will not be parallel with the vehicles yaw axis.
Does this matter, am I thinking all this through for nothing?
Please see my crude MS Paint drawing
Oh also... Can anyone recommend a good 3 axis gimbal?

It's not optimal but in reality it does not make any noticeable difference.
The aerial camera is almost always pointed at such a long distance that it can be considered as infinite so it is still tracking same point in azimuth axis.
Now if you expect the gimbal to track an object 3 feet away while the multirotor spins that's another story...
