  1. Hi, am looking at the Whitesheep frame myself, interested to know more about how you mounted the gimbal. Where did you get the carbon tubes from and what was the mount attached to the end with the gimbal? Interesting build! Thanks, George

      1. Hi, yeah I found those after posting, looks like a good solution with the camera out front like that, must give a great field of view without props visible. Do you have any problems with jello?
