    Here is my second ever flight on my Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D(I have owned Phantoms for over a year and quads for almost 3 years though). The P2 is extremely stable and the Zenmuse H3-3D is seriously amazing. I have a Zenmuse H3-2D and the stability of having that 3rd axis makes ALL the difference. All these shots are completely un-stabilized RAW, straight out of the camera(other than a little color correction since I shot in ProTune). There was also roughly 15MPH wind, which with my H3-2D would completely ruin any shot I was going for.

    Here is the video:

    This is awesome! No more needing to film at a Wide FOV, or slow down the frame rate in process, or fly backwards for a smooth shot!!!! woot woot. Good job mate! Keep up the great videos.

    Laselvasurf,

    Looks great. Questions:
    1) is your H3-3D on the new P2 or old P2?
    2) are the legs carrying the new gimbal old P2 stock, new P2 stock (no idea if those differ) or aftermarket?
    3) how is the clearance below H3-3D and camera?
    4) does there appear to be any programmability to the new gimbal (e.g.: roll lock or modification of yaw strategies)?
    5) do you every shoot Steamers Lane? If you don't mind a little salt water spray on your lens, you could get some epic footage there!

    Thanks!
    Some Answers...

    1. It's on a new P2, purchased with the H3-3D.
    2. The legs are stock, it appears as though they are the same as the original P2 legs, but without an original P2, I can't be sure.
    3. The clearance is close to the same on the P2 as a H3-2D on a P1. If anything there is a little more more clearance with the new gimbal.
    4. Yes, there is. However I have not played with those settings at all, so I can' comment specifically. I may have some time tomorrow to dig a little deeper.
    5. Yes :D I fly there all the time. Actually, when you posted this, I was there flying this morning. Got some pretty sweet footage. Here is a quick edit from this morning's shoot.

    Are you shooting in medium FOV? I've tried wide and am having issues with leg interference when rotating clockwise. Have you shot in wide?

    thx

    Nice work on flying and editing your Lighthouse / Steamers clip. Liked the tunnel fly-thru, the speed play, and the down-the-line-at-sunrise shot. Very photogenic part of the world. Thanks also for answers re leg height and belly clearance.

    I was using 2.7K Medium 30FPS. I hate the distorted horizon look of the wide angle settings on the gopro, so I also shoot medium or narrow.

    The song is called Sail, by Awolnation. It's been used for quite a few redbull promo videos over the years, so many have heard it.

    I'm copy and pasting my post from another thread, but thought you might be able to answer better since you have flown with it.

    "No,the OP is talking about the securing pins. They're in the way. Mine too. OP did you figure this out? I don't want to screw it all in until I know what to do. Maybe only put the pins through on the front? I know it shows only putting 2 in diagonal on the diagram, but I'm thinking about maybe just putting two in the front and ziptie-ing the back. Or 1 in and 1 zip tie on back. Any ideas?"

    The securing pins are blocking proper gimble yaw turning (left to right).

    just 1 question, are you able to adjust the tilt to move slower than the default setting? does the gimbal tilt gain settings in the software work for the h3?

    Laselvasurf,

    Love to hear your answers to two questions below: 1) what are the installation details/experiences w.r.t. the securing pins? 2) does tilt gain work on the H3-3D?

    Bag the pins, if they are getting in the way you have them installed wrong. Your suppose to use two of them. Myself and many others don't even use them. Use a small zip tie, dental floss etc… to attached the bottom to the top. Leave it loose enough so it won't bind
