Rc-Drones PhantoMounts Carbon Fiber Camera Gimbals for DJI Phantom & More

We are getting ready to release a new line of carbon fiber camera mounts w/integrated battery tray for the DJI Phantom. Mounts will also work for DIY setups.
I will use this thread to update new developments, pics, vids, etc..

We are hoping to start accepting pre-orders 1-22-2013.

Here is a short vid we shot today.
As you can see it was a little dark and snowing.
I will update with new vids as we get it fine tuned.

Pics are of the 2-axis prototype and not the final version.
We will also be offering a 1-axis and mounts wide enough to fit the GP case.

Once final version is finished we will post pics and remove these pics

I had to load the raw video on Vimeo because last time I tried to load the same vid on YT I was not able to do it.
The Vimeo video only uploaded at 720 though

Looks good!

Can it be assembled the other way around so the gopro lens is more in the center?

Also what is the gimbal only weight with servos and without?

Cheers.

No the stock Phantom TX does not have a knob for moving the camera.

You can easily setup the camera stabilization to keep the camera level though.
We will be offering a version with a differnt TX/RX that has knobs for pointing the camera down once DJI releases the Phantom only kits for $580.
Customers that already have a Phantom can buy a TX/RX combo from us for $170 and do it themselves or send us there Phantom and we can do it for a fee.

Scale is not good enough to get an accurate AUW weight but the gimbal+battery tray w/servos is 127g.
I will weigh the Hyperion battery I am using and post it.
Once I get a chance I will get flight times with everything.
Its been windy and 17 degrees here today.

Yes I forgot to flip it around.
We like it with the tray upside down and the GoPro mounted upside down.
Then the lens is in the middle but lower and farther away from the props/arms.
I will take some pics to show it can be mounted both ways and keep the lens centered.

We now offer a carbon fiber battery/accessory tray for the Phantom.
This will allow you to better balance the Phantom with a GoPro attached.
Use 2 stock batteries or a bigger battery like a 3300mAh.
Also has room for an FPV TX as shown in pics.
They are now in stock-> http://www.rc-drones.com/rcd-phantomount-acc.php

Looks nice, I just posted it up on PhantomPilots.com, hopefully you'll get some sales from there, too.

Can you tell me which of the GoPro camera's you used, and at what settings? I am very impressed with the footage.

Also, does anyone know what weight the Phantom can carry with this gimbal installed. In other words, can we use other camera's?

Thanks
