    Just set up a quick release gimbal on my FC40 and mounted the FC40 camera to it for FPV and recording... Still in the tweaking phase but so far I am very impressed with the results from a $100 gimbal off of ebay... I have it secured with 3M super strong velcro that can hold the weight of a dropped bowling ball and have it wired to the NAZA to have the ability to pan down from my controller which is a great feature!! I also pulled the spare power wire down so I will have the ability to power it up through my quad battery instead of a small battery..

    The board says BASECAM but you can go to simplebgc.com for schematic information and it purchased it from rcmodelpart.com on ebay so the brand is one of those I'm guessing.. lol..

    Why Velcro? Can't you mount it to the body with screws?

    I use velcro to have the ability to quickly remove the gimbal. My brother and I often go out for night flights and taking the gimbal off allows for longer flight times...
