    I have had my V2+ for a few weeks now and would like to be able to drop my camera down so when i'm flying forward I don't see the rotors. I realize you can just fly backwards or tilt the camera, but it'd be nice to have the full range of the camera tilt without having to worry about the rotors (props, whatever).

    With the existing wiring, i'm not sure you could drop it down or forward far enough to solve this problem... has anyone tried? I haven't taken the time to take apart the current mount/shock dampeners but figured i'd float this out there to see if other people have tried anything.

    So are you going to extend the legs too?

    I was thinking I'd just do a release and catch. Not too worried about the legs. Could just take them off but wouldn't have anywhere to catch it by.
