of course, since the gimbal part will be changed to CNC type, the part list is not ready yet, but so far in the tests, we didn't find any vulnerable part yet.
the part will be available soon.
thanks
Fu

the weight is around 800g including the gimbal
it can carry a camera less than 400g
you can use up to 12inch propeller on this frame.
we offer a setup of T MOTOR 2216+ 1038 propeller.
acceptable efficiency, stable fly performance.
thanks
Fu

if you'd like to do that ,you can adjust the cam to point downward before taking off,
we may offer an upgrade kit to make it possible to control by a servo .
thanks

The Raw video looks very stable good work on the frame. It would be nice if it could accomodate a small fpv camera without many mods since most of the new Mirrorless dslrs do not offer av out option.

It would be nice to list some weight ratios between battery and camera in order to achieve some nice stabilisation.

Fu,

Max prop that can be installed on the frame is 10"? do the T motors you sugest can handle 14.8v spinning a 10" prop?
