    I wanted to install a gimbal on my Phantom 1 but it was hanging down a bit too far. So not to damage it I looked for some options. Some were upwards of $50 and some just looked bad. I came across these at Bangood.com and placed my order. When they came I put them on the scale and they were about 2 grams heavier which really is almost the same. But as you can see they add a lot of stability and look cool. They also keep the gimbal from hitting even when it is tilted! So for me they get a big plus. I will try to post some photos of them being weighed and also with the gimbal mounted. Here is the link if you want to buy any:

    And here is my video if you want to see them mounted.

    They gave you another $1.50 off that is not bad if you are in a hurry. When I order from Banggood I usually put a list of things together and then order. Most of the time I can wait, but if it is urgent paying a few extra dollars is the only choice. You will enjoy them I know that for sure.
