    Hi... I would like more space for future gimbal and mobius camera...
    there are cheap landing gear skids, they would be perfect, but problem is lastest phantom versions have integrated compass.

    I found this alternative, but I don´t know if someone tested.
    It seems for old phantom (maybe less weight)

    could be compatible with phantom vision? (and "bad idea" integrated compass?). In this way I think can avoid that problem.

    do you know other option to rise 4-5 cm my vision to get more space?

    thanks¡

    The integrated compass housing will get in the way of mounting those extensions...

    I have an IRC 600 vTx, so I'm using these extensions with integrated vTx housing.

    Hi, yes, you are correct, but I was thinking install in alternative way: two screws up landing gear, and two screws under. I think in this way, compass doesn´t interfere.

    but maybe I will have new problem: when recording or photo... could be I record too these extensions...

    thanks... this option would be perfect¡¡¡¡ https://www.shapeways.com/product/45SWF ... d=42189154 but price is crazy.

    I´m thinking about 2-3cm, at least, because my plan is use a gimbal for Vision camera, and under it, attach a mobius camera (2cm) to record video and photo at same time (and mobius have a fantastic video quality).

    other options seems ok too, but I will need (to use that extensions) extend compass cable too inside (for sure it´s short)

    thanks¡¡
