Real nice job. Looks good and functional. Have you tried it with the camera pointing straight down?

Here are some updated pictures of the gimbal guardThe gimbal guard will not be seen from the camera at a complete downward angle! The guard can be put on either way (name facing up or down, facing up it is more flush with the ground and facing down it leaves a little room from the ground. I can aswell redesign it completely to have the name on either side and sit more flush with the ground. ) Some more test flights and time will tell!

Shots of lens hood concepts. (They slide over the camera due to having a standard model)

Once you have your way with redesign, do post it on http://www.thingiverse.com/, unless of course u'd rather print it and sell..

It would be very cool to see a large printed personalized launch/landing pad.
Perhaps with your own company name printed into the unit. For an advertisement piece.

That's an impressive 3D printing 'lab'. I'm sure there are many things you could design and print with that setup.

Thanks for the follow up, & glad to hear the awesome guard, works as you planned. ;-)

Please print mine in red, with my phone-number... Hahaha

RedHot,
The landing pad is a good idea! (It will have to wait until i finish the big printer, I would want at least a 2ftx2ft pad, in one print.)

Now onto your gimbal guard, do you want it visible when its in the air or landed? Then do you want it visible from standing looking from the front of the drone or back? Red will be no issue.

Thank you for the compliments on the lab! It's my getaway from the business and it's all pleasure, no commercial/retail work really.

Let me know

I think a Red guard would be quite visible from a distance, helping maitain VLOS.

Nice design.
If I had a printer the first thing I would try would be to design some higher easy snap-on-off leg extensions.  The ones being sold commercially that I've seen don't raise the Phantom very high...Less than an inch from the original height.  Two inches would be ideal to keep the gimbal away from stones and give the Phantom something to break off lessening the impact when the ground suddenly decides to raise up and crash my Phantom...Or those pesky limbs that suddenly decide to grow at the speed of light and grab the undercarriage.  It's a dangerous world out there.

RedHot I can't get a PM to go through to you!! I can see the three you sent me and I am assuming the number you wanted on the guard is not a cell phone? I tried to text you! Shoot me a cell number (My plan is atleast free to Canada! lol)

Might have to contact a forum rep and look into the pm glitche the forum has been experiencing.
Sorry, I don't have a cell phone, no need... But you can use that number to call me.
Hopefully we can get this problem eradicated soon.
But that is the correct number to place on the guard.

@DJI Ken, please see if there is a problem with the PM feature on the forum.

Some PM messages between members aren't going out to the recipient. Can you guys please fix this?

When you type a reply, on the bottom line, then tap return or tap enter on your key board, what happened?

I know I have had to resend a PM, to several members here, as the first attempts failed.

Correct, I hit enter/return and it "sends" but you never respond... So I refresh the page and its gone and just back to what you have wrote. I made a thread in forum help/fix. So hopefully well be up soon!

RedHot... I saw your messages... I already put it on the printer... It has your number facing up and its embedded into it. So it has a lot of definition to the phone number....I started designing a whole new landing gear and gimbal guard combo. Something with more height and wider legs for better landings. When I finish that we can put your forum tag on it as well... Cool?
