Has anyone used an X3 or X5 on a non-DJI aircraft or RC vehicle?

    Has anyone here used an X3 or X5 on a non-DJI aircraft or RC vehicle?

    I'm imagining building a sort of a smaller version of the Freefly Tero rig:

    freefly tero - Google Search

    If I could mount and remotely operate an X3 or X5 and send video back via Lightbridge, I'd be delighted. I'd also like to explore the idea of doing this on a non-DJI aircraft. Not sure how I'd go about it however... I presume that the camera needs to be connected with an N1 flight controller, so it might require scavenging some parts from a crashed Inspire1. Before the Osmo came out, I had hoped that it would allow second operator control of the gimbal (like the Ronin and Ronin-M for example) but unfortunately not.

    So has anyone already hacked together something like this?

    Thanks!
