This camera gimbal tilt mount makes for stunning video recording capability with your Bumblebee Quadcopter. It included a pre-mounted metal gear mini servo which allows for tilt action.
This mount is constructed of high quality carbon fiber and features rubber grommets made of a special vibration-dampening compound which makes for superb video quality.
Max camera width: 120mm
Max camera height: 183mm (measured at center of mount)
It seems decent and does the job, though to take my Canon S100, which just fits, I had to swap out the servo, which couldn't handle the weight. I installed a Corona 939 metal-gear servo and now the gimbal works fine. I also attached two rubber bands between the sides of the gimbal and the legs of the quad (an Alien 560, also swapped out the attachment hooks for ones from Tarot). Without the rubber bands the gimbal frame jiggles around too much.This gimbal was specified under the acc part of the x650f so i assume this is compatible with the x650f so i immediately ordered 1, to my dismay when the package arrived, the hooks are far apart and are not designed to be used with x650f! wth hobbyking. why would you specify this on the acc tab of the x650f if it isnt designed for that frame!Ho una Go-Pro3 e dopo averla montata sul mio Bamblebee ho avuto soddisfazione nel constatare che ci sono poche vibrazioni ed il filmato ottimo. Buon prodottoI Love this gimble. It has isolated the waves in the HD footage and works a treat. If you watch the test video, you can see as you thrust forward, the camera stays level so you do not miss any footage. This is evident in the movie when the Habu jet is hand launched and the copter chases the jet as it picks up speed. Without the gimble, all you would see is grass as the copter tilts forward but it stays locked onto the subject (the jet ). I will be replacing the servo as it is a little jerky as can be seen at times in the vid. I have a JVC Everio camera mounted on the gimble lifted by a Dji F550 Hex. All up weight with a 5000 mah 4S is 2.6Kg. <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7uM3PAfmkc>

I have just unpacked this product and I have to say it is of the highest standard. I have done a lot of testing to isolate vibration waves from the footage of hexacopter filming and I have not found a gimble type mount, UNTIL NOW, that has addressed this issue. This mount has a two point isolation system. The first is the set of blue silecone isolators
at the mounting point and the second is a set of black isolators at the camera mount itself. This totally isolates vibration and is big enough to fit my JVC Everio HD video camera. I have seen many mounts this size for over $200 and they still have not addressed the vibration issues like this product has. The mount is also VERY LIGHT. Awesome product HK and thanks.A good product. The servo needs to be replaced as the rotation angle is less and it is very jittery!!! Use MG90SGreat Camera mount for a GoPro unit comes 100pcnt ready to use out of the box. all you have to do is hookup the servo wire to a free channel and adjust your setting, I used a velcro strap to hold my GoPro in place here is the video
