    I usually take off and land from grass. I've never liked the stability of the craft as it is. So I decided to design something that would help the stability and protect the camera. I built it out of aluminum and stainless steel screws as to not affect the compass. This is what I came up with.

    How much does it weigh? Sure looks like it would help in the stability dept that's for sure. and provides a great spot for a tracker to e mounted.
