Summary

This is an adapter for the Feiyu Tech G4 Gimbal to fit the GoPro Hero 5.

Be warned, whilst this does work.. the central motor is put under a lot more stress and can make a grinding noise. I would only print this mount in ABS plastic for strength.

Obviously use this at your own risk, if the mount breaks and your camera falls to its death well.. your on your own.

I have deliberately kept the holes for the main thumb screws tight so they can self tap. Use a 2mm drill bit to widen the holes on the rear bracket and drill all the way through on the front clip.

If anyone works out a way to get this working without extra motor strain please re-post!!!

Put a 32g weight on the other side of the side motor. In form of round piece of metal. Best is lead coin. (as this is the solution for official Feiyu adapter as well) https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Feiyutech-offical-store-FY-new-mount-for-GoPro-Hero-5-and-only-compatible-with-G4-Gimbal/2223139_32777293656.html?spm=2114.12010608.0.0.QR4bbg

Wow there is an official adapter for G4!! I didnt need to sell mine after all :(
Still I am skeptical regarding performance, the motors really struggled with the hero 5 mounted. Its simply too heavy, causing slow response and a whiny noise on all 3 motors.

Hi Andrew, I am printing this now and will report back around Christmas when I get the Hero 5. I have a few ideas for fixing the balancing problem.
