The GoPro is now slung from a Camera Gimbal, there are plenty on the maket for the DJI Phantom this is just one from the lower end of the price bracket.
Here it is before I added the extended landing gear.
I had to fit longer landing gear because the Gimbal would foul when going through its setup procedure with the standard legs.
Here's a flight in strong wind, I've fitted the prop guards to show how hard the gimbal is working to keep the camera steady.
I have also fitted Fat Shark FPV (first person view) transmitter and goggles so that I get a birds eye view from the copter, hopefully this will help me when framing shots.
Hope to use it this summer out on the boat
As for what caused the Compass to fail? I have too many idea's but no hard facts???
All I know is it flew fine for 3 batteries then on the 4th it went bad on me!
got the whole thing on Video though.
Here's a few of stills taken from video footage shot.
