Testing X468 Frame with GoPro mount


Here is a test of the X468.com Frame with GoPro mount. The setup uses the stock gopro mount on a quad frame setup. I am flying a new flight controller on this so it is boring footage until I get a few more batteries under the belt. You can see the footage is very smooth with very little to no jello effect. Weather didn't help either - You can see by the footage I am using the Sunex lens on the GoPro

Very nice, I'm going to order one soon to build for a customer. I'm happy to see very little vibration transmitted to the camera.

Thanks, Micheal64

12" boom - 3S 2200 MAH lipo - KK controller should work I would need to see dimension of the board to verify it -
I will try to get some pictures together of the mount - Basically I have replaced the carbon shafts that were mounting the camera with bungie material to eliminate the hard mount to the frame - The battery is on this same mount to absorb the vibes -

Now that does not much sound like "stock" - does it ?
Can you show pictures of this please

When I read your first sentence I was looking forward to see Mr. Jello buried with my soon to arrive "stock" X468 frame

+1 I'd love to see how you used bungy material. I haven't put my gopro mount on quite yet.

Yes you can still achieve it with the stock frame but you had better balance everything - props, bells, etc... No frame is going to guarantee vibration free setups - it will all be based on your setup -

what I might try is filling silicone caulking into the x468 gopro mount.
