    I thought it would be a good idea to make one, This is the prototype, I think it will work good, will print one in black and give it a try.

    Nice work ! Be interested to hear how the testing goes. I've been looking for exactly this kind of thing, I'm surprised DJI don't offer one.

    Very cool. Will you be selling these or releasing the stl file for those of us with a 3d printer?

    Any thoughts about aerodynamics--the airflow around the camera? Might this cause camera vibrations when requiring higher speeds when shooting?

    As good as it looks, I don't think this will be good for the cams aerodynamics. Especially when it's really windy.
    Well done though.

    That could be a problem, I think i have a good idea to fix that, I will add vents to let the air out what do you think of that ??

    Agreed. So far, I haven't seen any real need, personally, but to each his own.
