ATTENTION: After experimenting with this setup, I noticed, that the two magnets in the CUBE action cameras caused the magnetic compass to fail. Therefore it is advisable to remove the magnets from the cameras, and to mount the cameras in a different way (double sided tape?)
See here a video on how to take the camera apart: http://youtu.be/TCc3k9c4AVU
Here is my latest 3D setup for the DJI Phantom with the cheap gimbal from China.
I bought two Polaroid Cube cameras.
They have strong magnets, and the original packaging contains a metal plate, that I fixed on my gimbal arm with strong double sided tape. Both plates fit here on the arm side by side.
I stick them on there and align them as good as I can. I flew around already, and they did not fall off.
They are both together only 0.6 oz heavier than one GoPro Hero 3.
I am going to show you how this gimbals, when the aircraft is moving. I took the rotor blades off for this test.
Tell me what you want, but this works just great. I can’t wait to shoot a real 3D video up there in the sky.
Please let me know, what you think. Rate, comment and subscribe!
Tilts like a charm!
Thank you guys for watching my DJI Cube video!
