This is a replacement frame for a cheap Ebay Gopro Hero 3 stabilization gimbal. the original version was all metal (aluminum) and I wanted to create a 3d printed version to save weight. Plus add some mods. Specificly a mount for a small FPV video cam and a slot for the accelerometer instead of just having it hot glued to the bottom of the camera platform. I also included a second Plain Camera arm that will use the included Velcro camera lens strap.

UPDATE: After testing I added cable hooks to the base plate. (baseplate3)
UPDATE2: After some flight testing I moved the pivot point on the camera housing so it wouldn’t catch against the back motor. The Camera housing will also fit the ISAW action cameras.
Also added some trays to the baseplate.

Printing Instructions
When you print the gimbal make sre to print (2) of the motor housing cans. They’re both exactly the same.
