    Caludio assuming it has the same exact hole pattern then it should work fine. Since 1001copters is a Freefly distributor why don't you ask them if it will work?

    I use them on my Cinestar. It has the same hole pattern as the FF four-pointed star.

    Thanks Andy, do you add 4 more dampeners when mount this plate ? what was the results? Just considering this mod but original freefly dampeners looks bit overpriced for me.maybe wire rope vibrations isolator instead.what do you think?

    Yes. This uses eight dampeners. I just went with the FF dampeners. For me, the copter actually turns out to be the cheapest part of the whole aerial videography process -- but I realize that's obviously a personal choice so I don't mean to criticize your line of thinking at all.

    Hi There :)

    Thank you Andy for the answer you gave, it's perfectly right.
    The puropose of the enhanced plate was to distribute the global weight on more dampeners. The point was that these dampeners were very costy.
    It appears that the 6 branch star plate works also very well.

    Best regards,
    Cedric

    Thanks guys, just wondering what results do you have with switching from standard ninja plate for 6 or 8 branch star?Is it worth to upgrade?I'm experiencing micro shakes with standard ninja plate and i'm thinking that more fixing points could help.
    Andy, I got your point but as Cedric said I believe that 75 dollars http://www.quadrocopter.com/FreeFly-CineStar-Vibration-Dampening-Brackets_p_399.html is too much for it. It's not about $$$ but a ratio price/quality.
    I may have this one for a tests in near future: http://www.dalesgear.com/vibration-isolators/dmc-mini-quad-vibration-isolator isn't cheep but I will see how it handle vibrations.
