Heck, so this little thing could easily carry a FujiFilm W3 or more!

Do you want to balance your props? First you need to get a prop balancer. There are numerous videos on YouTube that can show you how. If you are talking about calibrating your compass the manual will guide you through that process.

Tony, now the customizer of the Phantom, can you show me the connection on the GPS to the remote compass? I would really appreciate that. Thanks.

Is the Phantom good for newbs? I have flown a Parrot AR Drone 2.0 with the Macgyver RC mod and do pretty well. Is it anything like that or much more difficult?
My goal would be to use this for 3D movies I make, holding 2 GoPro's filming.

I would say yes for newbees. I am not sure about the weight of two GoPros in the 3D mount. It may be ok but the balance would be off.

I am sure it could hold 2 GoPro Hero 3 black editions, as they are pretty small and light. I'd just be worried about jello.

It looks so plastic and easy to break apart in crash, I wonder how much is that body frame cost alone!

Have you looked at the video that I shot, there are two posts in this thread. One at 1440 and the other at 1080. You decide. There are isolation mounts being worked on as we speak. Several will be available in the next few weeks.

Very nice, hopefully by the time I buy they will be out. Would be nice to have jello free video.
I am sure my wife could even sew something up to fix the problem also. Shes amazing at sewing and making things. Shes going to make me a GoPro protective cover soon, so when I fly my cams always safe. I'd use the clear case cover but it's a bit heavy attached to my AR Drone.
