    Tarot T-2D Gimbal Mounted on my QAV400

    Here is my attempt at mounting a tarot gimbal on my QAV400 as a removable unit. I wanted something that didn't stick out to much or block my flight camera which is mounted underneath the frame. The gimal unit is removed by undoing six screws.

    Hopefully the photos have uploaded correctly and I will post a video when my new props arrive. Enjoy!!!

    Dude, wow! I am looking into getting a gimbal for my QAV400. Could you add more detail how you managed to mount the roll motor to the frame with a block? Was it hard?

    It's just a wooden block which I cut and drilled. I then just glued the roll motor in. It took me about six hours to make. I don't really recommend it because I don't think I'm ever getting the roll motor out. I saw somewhere on facebook that someone is making and adapter for fitting the tarot gimbal on the QAV400. I wish I had found that out before I made mine. I also wish I could find the post on facebook again...

    Yup that's the one. It looks like a really great product. I would buy one if I hadn't already glued my roll motor in. Oh well.
