    Dang and I did multiple searches for this prior to posting, mostly centering on the TARCO-RC/TACO-RC terms and it returned nothing. :roll: ... apologies.

    I've emailed the vendor and asked:

    1. Is it plug an play? If not, what is required?
    2. Can the mount be swapped for a gopro mount? If so, which mount?
    3. What is the weight of the device?
    4. Do you have any further video footage? Especially in flight...
    5. Does the mount retain the full functionality of the DJI App?
    6. Does it reduce the wifi range of the Camera?
    7. Do you have any written literature on the device?
    8. Is the item shipping? If not, when...

    I'd like to see if I get any response...

    Thanks tizzl10 for the link, did the vendor send it to you?
    And I see the product is now listed as a pre-order...
    Still not clear from the images linked here, how or where exactly all the wires connect. Specifically the black/red lead as show in the lower right corner of this image:

    I've not yet received a reply to my email. :|

    yes, he sent it to me..they are very slow to respond to emails..and when they do, they never answer all of the questions. language barrier i imagine.

    Right - it takes days to get a reply if you even get one. I don't think it is a big company building them. Looks like an employee has access to a 3D printer and now is overwhelmed with orders.. Just my opinion. If they expect to sell a lot, they need customer support.

    The black/red lead as shown in the lower right corner of this image is for the pitch control.

    Sure would be nice to at least see them respond back to those of you that have emailed them. I see where some of the guys in the linked thread have actually ordered one. I'm sorry but I need an established tech support especially where a completely new product is involved. I'm not meaning to place fear in those that made an order, I just want them to know their balls are much larger then mine. :lol:

    You and me both, tizzl10! Hopefully, the package won't be a box of rocks! Excited to test it out.

    did you get expedited shipping? we are both on the east coast so we will probably get them at the same time.
