    I was wondering if a 2D or even 3D gimbal for the FC40 camera exists, or do people just put a GoPro on their FC40 quad?

    Yes , I got it at heli direct, cost $250. I have the möbius camera on it, and it works great, very easy to set up , all most p&p just need to put ends on wires, no need to do any gains , very we'll made. Would highly recommend it for the FC40 cam, and it's great using the mobius, just push button to set . As soon as I learn to post pictures I'll post some, :oops:

    Just to be clear, there are no gimbals designed for the FC40 camera that I'm aware of. Any gimbal mentioned in this thread would have to be modified for the FC40 camera.

    I have a Tarot and a 3+ Black which is pretty nice.

    We have prior posts with pictures showing the install of just about all the gimbals, just let us know if you need any help.

    it cost a bunch, but I didn't want to mess around with gains and stuff, lazy, and it looked like the Mobius would fit, sure enough it fits , and with very little mechanical mod got it working just fine, very good quality, but its a bit costly . so if you want a gimbal that's ready to go, no mucking with settings , this is the one to get, for the fc40 & the Mobius :idea:
