    V-Tail motor mount un-happyness

    So, bought the V-Tail motor mounts, had a hell of a time getting them onto booms that I painted, which resulted in one of the bottom sides that goes on the bottom of the boom breaking.

    Anyone have experience with the Super Simple Gimbal (SSG)?

    I've recently built a super simple gimbal (link), for use with a GoPro 2. I've had some strange issues with it being rather "twitchy" using the gains suggested in the article.
