    I bought the rubber ball mounts on carbon plates and the wire mount of plastic plates, both carrying the gopro. Did the same video with each system, also stabilized in Final Cut Pro. Wire comes out ahead, and I think it is equal to a good gimbal without the extra weight, cost, and performance issues. Check it out:

    Nothing beats a gimbal, but after shelling out $1000 plus bucks on the quad and gopro a guy just wants some ok video for awhile. Especially when the risk of crashing or losing the quad is at its highest. So spend the $30 or so on a wire isolation mount, then get a gimbal in a few months.
