  Talon front mount 2 Axis gimbal


Expanding on several solid camera mounts, I added a 2 axis, roll and pitch, brushless assembly to the fron of the Talon. The idea was to get it to fit inside the clear dome and while I was able to do this, the dome itself did not prove to be that useful as it very quickly became scratched and always had a slight reflection problem. So I chopped the dome up just enough to clear the sight lines of the camera and it worked very well smoothing out the pitch and roll.
