    Search has turned up little information. I am having trouble keeping the go pro 2 balanced in my gimbal. Anyone have any ideas on a solution to keep it from shifting during flight?

    I can only relate to a Phantom 2 with H3-3D and GoPro 3. I use filters and such so I had to balance mine. I will say though even in pure stock form they are NOT balance like you would think they should be. With that in mind I tried to balance it the way the stock one balanced (slightly heavy on the motor side). Just get creative with weight placement I guess. I even have a small balsa arm off of the tilt motor with a weight on the end...

    Double sided 3 m tape did the trick! Pro tip
