    Please can someone help me. I'm going mental.

    I bought this

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/17137718 ... 0&ff14=108

    I also bought the phantom 2. Just the quadcopter. I have a go pro 4. So wanted to use this with the gimbal I linked.

    However the bottom of my phantom 2 has 4 screws holes see pic here:

    The mount for the gimbal looks like this:

    As you can see the holes just don't line up.

    I have watched you tube clips of people using this combination so what am I doing wrong , do I need another part that sits between the drone and the gimbal and will allow that cross bit to fit ?

    I have watched tutorial vids and other phantoms seem to have a different undercarriage that supports this cross shaped mount , please please help me. Do I need a new gimbal ? Or just an extra part?

    Someone mentioned this

    but If I mount this part can I then fit the cross shaped mount of my existing gimbal into it?

    Does this make sense, can anyone help ?
