In my previous video” Test 1 ” I have used to soft rubbers and strap as a DIY gimbal for Hubsan H501s. After my flight, it turned out that it wasn’t a good idea; small vibrations has been suppressed, but bigger ones increased. This time I have used standard rubbers, which came with an ┬áanti vibration plate and a super mega adhesive duoble tape 3M. This time everything works smooth. I can even say that this cheap gimbal works much better than expensive one for 40$ ­čÖé

Please notice very important for H501s is the weight, this could happend when ESC is overloaded/overheated when we adding to much extra weight.

My set weight is about 57g ( camera + gimbal ), but after the flight I felt that battery is super hot, what means it’s draining battery super fast to┬áachieve stable fly ( but nothing bad could┬áhappen, just don’t excised 60 grams of extra weight ) . So if we add more than 70g we can just burn a drone in mid fly ( battery on ESC is not ready for an additional weight). ┬áNext time I will try to remove battery from runcam v2, this will save about 15g ! ( I will power up camera from Hubsan battery ).

To attach gimbal to drone I used the 3M double tape. If you want to ask ” What will happen if tape falls off??? ” , I can say ” There is no way ” – it’s even hard to remove it by hands, so no worries. Next great extra freature is that we can put H501s without a camera on a flat ground with no worries, that gimbal will be destroyed by rubbing against the ground -it will be a free space about 4-5mm !! ­čÖé ┬áSo there is no need to remove the DIY gimbal.

Just for safety use a small line  to attach a camera to drone as I did.
