This is what they meant when they say a GoPro can minimise vibration.

Here’s the same area at around the same time, flight of an Immersion RC Xugong 10 that we were having issues with for quite some time on the vibrations and we’ve tried:

– Earplugs in dampening balls
– Red dampening balls
– Black dampening balls
These dampening balls from Hobbyking
– Adding a Tarot T2D gimbal with foam to the front
– Removing the gimbal again

It is the same. Then we popped in one of our damaged GoPro 3 that can’t do video out when the mobius* ran out of battery. We flew line of sight.

and we found out the GoPro indeed can take away vibrations in the video with the exact same motors, lipo, propellors…

*Our Mobius is converted to a GoPro form factor with these thus was able to use the gimbal.

Mobius to Instagram

When using mobius to record, if the video recording is set to .mov, it will not load into Instagram, crashing Instagram app, forced close the app on your phone or an error message saying “We could not proccess this video”. To make it compatible, use mp4 (H.264) instead.

RCX GF223 Build

This is one fun build by The Mrs. She took her time and meticuliously tidied up the cables. The difference between men building a quad in the team and women building it.

Men in the team are untidy and get it to fly first then worry about the looks of it. Women seems want to build it tidy from the get-go hahah
