    It seems like 90% of th egimbals on the market are designed for the Hero3 without a case. What happens if I want to run a Hero2 in a case, or a different camera entirely?

    Will I need to modify the mounting to align the CG, or will it work without a perfect CG?

    there is a reason why nobody has really put out a gimbal for a hero2 with case.
    (or hero3 with case), - added weight, and height restrictions. just won't fit under a Phantom
    plus you can't do FPV with a gopro in it's case, so you're forced to cut a hole int he case, making it un-waterproof anyhow.

    if you've got a Hero2, best option is to get a Arris for Hero2, and then never fly over water on a low battery.
