Hello, Has anyone found a way to plug an angled lightning connector in an iphone plus while it's mounted on the Osmo?
I own the first Osmo mobile, if I want it to be balanced, I have to let it touch the tilt motor roll, so there is  absolutely no room for a connector...
I was thinking to upgrade to Osmo Mobile 2, I never had one in my hands, but i'm afraid the problem is the same...

As an alternative, is it possible to mount a counterweight in order to balance the phone away from the motor?

Thanks..  Adolfo

I do have many, but there is no place to plug them in, as I wrote above...

I use a right angle charging cable with my iPhone 6 on the OSMO Mobile 2 all the time with no problem.  You just have to balance it with the phone shifted slightly to the left to make room for the connector.

Hi, sorry for the troubles that it caused. I'm afraid that the cable will still hit the motor of the Osmo mobile 2 unless you move the phone a little bit, or you could put your mobile device on vertical position to charge your phone while it is installed to your Osmo mobile 2. Please let us know if you have other concern. Thank you for the support.

Yup just as LouisP said
Place the phone slightly to the front so that there will have place for the connector, then try to balance the phone again by adjusting the arm

You all are suggesting actions I've obviously tried, otherwise I  would net be here to ask... I  see I keep being not understood, maybe because of my poor English knowledge... I apologize for this..

so.  let's summarize:
Mine is iphone SEVEN PLUS,, bigger  than iphone 6..
Mine is OSMO MOBILE first version, not Mobile 2

I have extended the arm of the gimbal completely out, and nevertheless, the phone can't be balanced unless it's pushed completely against the   "rubber guide" ..

Doing this, the lightning connector is obstructed by the rubber guide itself...  absolutely nothing can be inserted in between...

if I try to leave a little clearange between the phone and the motor / rubber guide, there is no way to have it balanced...

I find strange I'm the only one having this problem..

Cheers,,

what do you mean by "to the front?  if I keep the phone inside the "grooves" it can be moved towards the motor or backwards..  but the only position to keep it in balance is pushed competely towards the motor, even with the arm fully extended...
