    I received my order from Banggood.com the other day and decided to do a few videos. Everything I got was really of great quality and so far I have almost all the items installed. These Carbon Fiber battery holders not only work well, but add some style. I also added the extra long landing gear which gave plenty of room for my gimbal. I have some really cool videos now that things don't shake all over when filming. it takes a bit of time to receive your order from them, but if you are not in a hurry you can save some money. Even the Blackmagic 2700mAh battery turned out to be a great deal. At $24 I am going to order a few more. I will list a few links and if you have time check them out.

    I am going to show later this week some really cool video that I took with my Gopro Hero 3+ Black I am really excited I got the gimbal working.

    Nice catch on the LED Light. I'm getting one.

    I'm wondering how one the link of the first videos I ever did was amongst the four links you listed in this post>

    I left a comment on your video.

    Be careful with those battery mounts. Many people who have used side-mounts, especially with the 9" 9443 props, have experienced accumulating oscillations and loss of control, particularly on fast descent. More than one have crashed because of them. The external mounts place the batteries in the propwash and reduce the lifting area available for the props. If you really have to use them, I would urge caution and extra vigilance, and make sure you descend no faster than 1m/sec.

    That is good to know, I always try to descend slow as I worry about the prop protectors causing a parachute effect. I drilled a lot of hole in them to let some of the air pass. I will watch for what you said if I do put the 2 batteries on it. I may try it with my other phantom without the gimbal and camera. I don't want to ruin that, or my Phantom for that matter !!! Thanks again for letting us know.
