GoPro Drone Multirotor Gimbal Camera Mount
Since this entire blog is about Drones with Cameras, but many of the drones featured here don’t have internal cameras, here’s the equipment to add a camera such as the wildly popular GoPro to your multirotor copter. Most drones have some room underneath for a camera mount, but if yours doesn’t you’ll need to fabricate and extend the legs and feet to accommodate for the camera. Likewise, you can’t just put one of these on a toy drone. You have to have at least a hobby level drone that features interchangeable parts and allows for add on attachments.

What does a GoPro Gimbal Camera Mount Do?
Simply, if you mount the GoPro directly to the drone, you’ll get a lot of vibration and shake in the video as the drone flies around. This is caused by the rotor motors, wind and many other natural factors, but having a GoPro gimbal camera mount greatly reduces the shake and also keeps the GoPro level. Here’s a simple video demonstrating how the GoPro Gimbal Works:
Immediately you can see how important it is to have one of these units if you’re serious about taking great video with your drone.
