You'll probably have some degree of pendulum effect, but perhaps not too much.

Hope it flies better then my version of this that I tested! Mine had an annoying wobble problem with the low CG. I think the front mount flies sooooo much better.

My number one biggest fear. Had the same type of thing with a logo10 and home made pano mount.

The camera gear is a good 7 inches higher up in the heli than when running a full joker frame

This mount rides on a silicone gel suspension but i have really no idea how its going to handle until i fly it.

Yes, that should help. The HPX is lighter which hopefully will help also.

What silicone gel are you using? Sounds interesting!

The suspended top plate of the mount uses 6 silcone gel grommets. The whole suspension system is 1/4 inch tall.

With the roll axis of the camera being so far lower than the roll axis of the heli, IMHO, its impossible to get rid of the 'swing' / pendulum effect.

For video work, front mount wins hands down.
However, your mount design looks to be front-mount-friendly. Great work!

Today was a good day!

First test flights today and the heli flys very very well.

Smooth as can be. No sawying or bobbing. Great power. And best of all no dreaded wobble.

Decided to go with a 6.5LB dummy camera load for testing as itll be carrying an EX-1 half of the time.
This put the AUW at a scant 23.5 LBS

I really have hi hopes for Georges IMUs he`ll be shipping.

Cant wait!

Heres vid from the second flight with the gimbal gyros (401s) off and a douche bag running the gimbal (not me ). And yes...its deshaken.

Looks good!

You might not have pendulum because you managed to set up that mount lighter than stock and have a fairly light camera.

Congrats.

Tested in the 90 degree heat of the Coachella Valley this weekend.

No heat related issuse thus far. Think i will swap out the RT830s for the 790 NHPs the joker came with. Its a bit flighty at this wieght with such large blades.

Heres another test vid

You must have done something different on your heli set-up or in post, as the second video is not as smooth as the first.

What post stabilization are you using?

I could be wrong but the heat may have softened the G-10 top plate and made the mount kinda bouncy.
I was very paranoid about weight when i built this so now ill be doing some structural mods to most likely get rid of the bouncing

Will post more footage soon.

Vortex, can you post some pre-deshaken video? I'd like to see examples before post-processing occurs. I know it's not at its final stage yet of course.

Pretty sure this is getting sorted out. Fabbed and installed heavy duty mount plates. Looks like it may have done the trick.

The raw video looks really good even without a deshaker pass. I do notice a very very slight vibration sometimes during a few of your turns. I only notice it if I focus on the outer edges. Is that coming from the whole chopper body or is it a slight wobble amplified from the give in the silicon grommets?

[edit: I don't think anyone who wasn't flying choppers and dealing with this a lot would ever notice that vibration, by the way]
