    This is handy if you're flying a 3-axis in a single operator setup and have disabled the pan axis. The standard tilt bars are perfect for locking the copter to the gimbal. :) 20130404_SingleOp_Lock_0001.jpg

    Good way to recycle those standard tilt bars!

    I haven't flown with it like this yet. I'm hoping that vibration doesn't travel through the tilt bars to the gimbal....

    You are correct Jose. It might send vibrations to the gimbal. I haven't tested it yet. I'll leave feedback after testing.

    I guess if the bracket had a little of slide up and down freely it should work....Freefly will come out with bracket for that you will see
