Make a Handheld Gimbal out of your Phantom 3 Drone


No need to get a handheld gimbal if you have a drone! In this weekly video Jonas gives us a walkthrough to a pretty cool technique whereby you can make a handle for the DJI Phantom 3.

This video is made for those times when you wish you could make use of the sweet stabilized video you get from shooting with the phantom drones but conditions just make it dangerous to fly. This video will help you in some of those cases. No matter if you are shooting indoors or in a dense forest, this handle really helps keep the drone gliding smoother than just hand-holding it. You just have to find someone with a 3D printer…
