    A 360 degree GoPro brushless gimbal

    What is the distance between the upper and lower plates on your frames? Wondering if can adapt to taller frame with spacing.

    What are you thinking to recommend for motors since the problem with the one?

    it's 35mm. I don't have any different motors in hand so all i can suggest is to buy from a retailer known for good support. RMRC has replaced puffed lipos that are over a year old for free. They would have no problem exchanging a bad motor for a good one.

    When I get the gimbal working on a test frame(next week) I'll post videos, settings and tips. I will be getting 3D printed parts over to RMRC. At that point I will begin looking at conversion kits for other frames(TBS, QAV, etc.). I really think this is how Hero3 gimbals should look and perform. Larger cameras(DSLR) have the motors in reverse because the moments are completely different around each axis.

    Also, cutting the clean plate is not necessary. Just rotate it around. Use the extended section for a larger/longer battery, or to correct the CG.

    Looking good, have you determined what is causing the slight vibrations, Frame or Gimbal Tuning?
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    it's just the gimbal PID settings. it could also be the low quality print used for this test gimbal(not as strong). the official shapeways one is very solid. this was printed on a cheap makerbot

    These setting are getting better and better. Im re printing the main arm to see if the slight vibrations are from the arm or settings. Will keep everyone posted.

    What gimbal board/firmware is driving it?
