Feet mounted and front legs smoothed and stuccoed now I'm waiting for the plungers I think these are good for you to say?

They seem ok, 6mm diameter x 7mm long is what you need.
I got stainless ones as well, the first ones I ordered came wrong so I got some more from Amazon, there's are the ones I got,

thanks for the answer Kananga I have already ordered them I hope will arrive soon so I can see if the legs can lock well. I am also making a list of components but I am very indecisive, then I will ask your advice from you experts thanks

I don't know for certain but your list seems ok, I don't see any major conflicts anyway.

Decide which camera you want to use first then look at your options, I'm going to use a runcam split 2 and design and make my own gimbal but you may prefer to buy a ready made one or there maybe a design on thingiverse for the camera you choose, the gimbal mount might need to be altered to suit your application.
Decide on your camera first.

ok for now thanks I think I have to put together all the parts needed to fly the mavic then I start thinking about the camera but I think a runcam split 2 is very beautiful even the runcam 3 should not be bad what do you say?

Post by: Kananga on December 29, 2018, 05:05:04 PM
I could be wrong but I think the split is the runcam3 but split up, runcam were court ordered to stop selling the runcam 3 as it was too simular to one of the gopros, I read that may have changed now but I'm not sure.
I chose the split for its form factor but also because it has built in fpv, I don't know if the runcam 3 does or not.

No problem, there's you, me and foldinglama active and building at the moment, we're also all doing a f3/4 version so we can help each other at this time. I will always jump on and help if I can but I'm no expert on this newer stuff.

I made an attack for our mavic for gimbal this is the result, I mounted the gimbal with two screws but I'm waiting for the rubber cushions

It looks very simular to the one for the runcam split I was going to use but it has issues so decided against it. Let us know how you get in with it.

I would like to disassemble it and put the objective externally and inside the card

It depends on which design it is, it looks very simular to the one designed by someone on here, was it razor maybe?, anyway, it says either on the thread here or on the thingiverse page that it over heats, one of the motors isn't big enough to hold and the whole thing is unbalenced so not only gives jello effect but also causes the previously mentioned issues.
Hopefully yours isn't that one though, I'm sure you've done your homework.

I saw this that looked good I just redesigned the piece that connects the gimbal to mavic do you think it's wrong?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkElyRgdvtI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkElyRgdvtI)

I don't have the experience to know if it's wrong or not, maybe just try it.
I'm only going off what I think I've read about it on here. I haven't the time to go back and re-read it all for you but I'll have a quick search to see if I can quickly find it otherwise search for gimbals on here and have a read.
