Messing around in CAD this morning and designed up a hard camera mount for my F550. Already thinking about a gimble set-up for pitch and roll compensation. I have a Go Pro Hero 2 coming, so I am going to work on a mount for that with the gimble. I am limited to using wood, due to only having a laser cutter, but if designed correct, I think it can be plenty strong. This was made from 1/8" ply and I bought a different brand of wood and as you can see in the pictures when pulling the tape off after cutting, pulled some of the wood fibers with it, no big deal just cosmetic.

A few other tweaks required after fitting the prototype, but it works and is very solid. Got one flight in with it and works well. Just thought I would share, take care guys!

Not the greatest video, but this is my second video with the camera installed, just messing around in the back yard. The first video was too wavy, I guess the best way to describe it and I deleted it. I turned off the camera auto stabilization for the second flight and it was much better. I can really see the utility of the gimble, especially in my multicopter novice hands, but I am hoping with practice, the filming will get better. This is in 1080p and I think the Sony has a good picture. It looks best in full screen and 1080 resolution. I am going to work on a gimble setup, wood of course. Boy do I need to buy the CNC router soon. That is next on the list of shop equipment. Talk to you guys later.

Thanks, The mount works out great. I am working on another mount for the Go Pro and the RC Logger Pro I have. Going to use the RC logger pro for the FPV portion and the Go Pro for the filming. Take care and thanks for checking out the thread.

Your video looks really great for early work.
There is a free program called "de-shaker" which can really smooth out the kind of bounce you are seeing in that video.
I added an EagleTree data logger with an altimeter sensor to record flight info for later review.
Anyway, thanks for posting.

Edit: Here is one of many links to how to use deshaker.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Here is a video I took today with a new fixed mount on my hex using NAZA controller. I thought the wind was calm but once above the trees you can see how much the horizon is tilted to hold it in one place, and the wind noise begins once above the tree tops.

Couple of spots that look like shadows, need to clean the cleans.

GyroFreak,

Thanks for the link and info, it is much appreciated! I am thinking about selling my F550 to help pay for the S800. I am really liking this multi rotor stuff and want to buy a bigger platform. If anybody might interested in my F550 RTF with RX and batteries, let me know. I will post a ad a little later.

WOW, that is a big hex. 15inch props, 10,000 mah 6S batteries. I really like the easy take-apart for transport. Mine with 10 inch props and 50 inch across (prop tip to prop tip) is rather clumsy to handle.
Keep us posted on your progress with the S600 or your current work.
