    I picked up the GoodLuckBuy gimbal but am somewhat stuck when it comes to figuring out how to mount the FC40 camera to it. Any thought starters or good example how-tos?

    You are going to have problems with ground clearance. Unless you have access to a 3D printer, I'm out of ideas...

    If you have any worry about the camera getting loose I found that a paper clip, with one end cut off, fits nicely into the slot on the top of the fc40 camera. A little piece of string tied to the leg or something and the paper clip works good for me. (although I am still inside of the fc40 original camera holder which seems to pop open kinda easy)
