Question
DJI F550 frame and Quadframe's 155mm landing legs

I plan on using Quadframe's 155mm landing legs together with Quadframe's Gopro 2-axis gimbal on my DJI F550.
What I want to avoid is drilling holes into the lower plate of the F550 in order to hook the landing gear. I'm looking for a solution which
  1. does not require drilling holes in the F550
  2. allows to easily remove the landing gear so the F550 can be put in a flight case for transportation

Would you have any suggestion ?

Thanks !

Hi there,

I'm designing a set of legs for the F550 to work with our gopro gimbal. Are you interested?

Thanks

It would depend how long you plan before releasing your legs and if you find a way to mount the legs on the F550 without having to drill holes in the bottom plate. If drilling is needed than I wouldn't see any advantage versus the quadframe legs and gopro mount.

Jakub,

in a few days you'll have a surprise allowing to hook your 155mm landing legs to a F550 bottom plate without having to drill in the plate ? If so, hell yes I'm going to wait a few days

Theres no drilling involved. This is a custom design specifically for the F550. The legs are similar to the ones on our Quad-670, allowing the camera to be position far forward on rails, counter balanced by the batteries.

It will be available within the next 10 days.

I would like to buy the legs also, and the gimbal for the GoPro (or one for a Sony Nex5n if I can get my Nikon D5100 sold.)
Would buy pretty much immediately if there's fluid motion in both the roll and pitch utilizing the NAZA gimbal connections and servos to make it have fluid movement aren't too expensive.
