Disco gimbal

Shamelessly copied the gimbal from Mark with some minor changes (dumpening rubber).
Works great :-)
Dampening brackets for new version from ebay:

the rubber I think is not a rubber but silicon much softer that rubber so hopefully will work better :-)
flight test coming in spring LOL, maybe sooner if I get some time to finish new disco.
I forgot to add that with new gimbal I will have too cut down the bottom plate (shelf for gopro) since the motors and dampening plate are shorter

Looks good. Can you add some pics of it assembled to the disco I plan on building one soon it'd be good to see how it goes together?
