    When you want to use back with the Inspire 1, do you need to remove it ?

    Let us know if he gets back to you. Fed up waiting for DJI to release the proper adaptor.

    Looking at it though, it's going to tilt the assembly slightly when it's attached back on the Inspire as the connection point is now protruding. It might put stress on the bracket.

    The ring that he has CNC, could we to just 3D print that ring as well? It seems to me it would be really strong. If I had the design I would print as i have a printer.

    The washers he uses are used on most 450 size heli as well as trex 600 and 700. They are for cap socket screws, or allen bolts.

    Sounds like we need someone on here that can design in CAD. If someone makes the file, i can print and ship out to you guys, you just pay shipping of it is more than a U.S. stamp. I like printing so it would give me something to do.

    Most young Japanese speak very little English but they can read it fairly well. In addition, there's plenty of online translators including Google Translate.

    So, I'm not sure why he hasn't responded.

    While the design looks like it's an acceptable short term solution I don't think I'd want to extend the mount like this as it will increase the stress applied to it.

    I hope DJI releases the much awaited X5 adapter and the software/firmware updates to take full advantage of the X5/X5R, but I won't hold my breath.

    You are tight about puting extra stress on the gimbal i guess the 3d adapter is the only thing that works for now.

    As long as the settings are correct for your 3D print then it will be strong, I've sold 30+ and had no problems from customers.

    3D printed ring part drawn/designed by me for Zenmuse X5 to make it Osmo compatible.
