    I just wanted to see if anyone had any tips about mounting a 360 rig under (or above) the Alta. Is it worth balancing under a Movi, or just hard mount? Any common pitfalls/issues I should be aware of?

    Thanks!

    hard mounting should be okay with the dampening system of the Alta.
    the problem is the landing gear. you need to build a custom folding gear system.

    We've been through many types of 360 rigs for aerials and the main situation is being able to stabilize cameras and horizon whilst inflight.... email us if you want more info on this subject...
    In the meantime here is some footage of us flying 360, as you can see you need to completely stabilise the horizon for it to work.

    That's some of the smoothest 360 aerial footage I've seen! If you don't mind sharing the details of the setup, I'd love to know more. Do you have a preferred 360 rig?
