FeiyuTech MiNi 2D Gimbal

FeiyuTech MiNi 2D Gimbal & Camera

The gimbal is available from the manufacturer and many online retailers, including B&H Photo & Video. In addition to the FeiyuTech MiNi 2D Gimbal itself, you’ll need some other parts to mount it to your ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter.

It is designed for a GoPro Hero 3, 3+, or 4 camera. Much less expensive cameras with similar form-factors are available, including the SJCAM SJ4000 Action Camera.



To install the gimbal, you will need some additional hardware, and connectors. You will need hardware for one of the three options for the "Replacing the Power Connector" step - see that step for details.
