This is the camera mount for the Hobbyking X550 glass fiber quadcopter frame. This handy acccessory allows you to mount a wide range of cameras to the bottom of your X550 for FPV and aerial video/photography.
Specs: Camera Mount Width: 113mm Camera Mount Height: 85mm Tilt Angle: 90° Pitch Weight: 153g (with all hardware)
"Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK Please RESTOCK I CAN´**T LIVE WITHOUT IT " me tooooooooooooooooooooooooo, we need them urgent..... HK , did you hear?
It is similar but will not fit as intended. Can be made to fit with modification. I drilled 4 holes in the corners and used 20mm metal standoffs to secure it underneath the x525 bottom plate. Makes a handy spot to hide the camera power supply.
hey guys, got this mount and trying figure out the best way to mount to my X550 quad.
Just clipping it on to the bottom plate of my quad, seems not very secure. Should I be adding screws to fasten this plate and the bottom plate of the quad? Anyone have this mount and a x550 frame who would be willing to chime in on the best way to secure the mount to the main frame?
I'm working the X550 with this camera mount. I think the best way to do it is to use the plate that comes with this as the bottom plate on the quad *instead* of the one that comes with the quad kit. As you tighten the screws that hold the arms of the quad it will lock in the vertical pieces of the camera mount. I've crashed mine four times now and this part is still doing fine.
Hello could I ask if this would fit a Gaui 500X quadcopter please As Iv decided to try and set it up to use with FPV.
The next part of the question is Id like to build a quadcopter from the ground up Where is the best place to start and Id like suggestions for flight controller, OSD GPS, and such? please
if i want to add this to the x525 frame, do i take away the third plates? - main plate, the one with x525 on it, the bot plate the one with the circle in it, the third plate the one i cant find any use of it - ?? - btw i am not talking about the camera mount plate.
I adapted mine to the x525 by cutting off the top lobes at the slits and using 4 nylon standoffs to screw it to the bottom of the frame. It is really not good for gopro since it is too wide angle. You need a multiwii board with acc and you need a good digital full size servo so you dont get jitter. See my video to see what i mean.
Hello. Im very new to this but im finished with my quadcopter x666 and im more than satisfied how it flies. Couldnt imagine how stable and good it would fly. Now I want a camera mounted on the quad so Im looking for this "tilt camera mount". Im not sure how I do the tilting from my $pektrum ds6i. Do I connect the servo to the aux or gear plug on my orange Rx 6ch? Witch button or how do I move the servo from my $pektrum then?
I have the same "problem", next week the camera frame servo will arive and i will see whats happening when i plug the servo in to channel5! I have a bad idea that when i set channel5/6 ON that it will change the signal from 0 to 255 and nothing in between... but we will see!
probably just need to cut some slots on the bottom plate so you can fit the legs in. They're really a snug fit and might require some hammering or impact tool to install, good thing is there's no need for fasteners and they still won't come off in flight
This component is essential for aerial photography enthusiast, the material has a nice termination, but is a bit heavy, the total weight with servos, cables and camera can be quite high. Integrated with the X550 frame provides a platform for experimentation. Great price and a very interesting option.
Este componente es fundamental para el aficionado a la fotografia aerea, el material tiene una bonita terminacion, pero es un poco pesado, el peso total con servos, cables y camara puede ser bastante alto. Integrado con el frame X550 ofrece una plataforma de experimentaciÃ³n. Excelente precio y una muy interesante opciÃ³n.
Adds about 170grams to the quad. I dont have the 550 but the X666 and the grooves of the camera mount baseplate have to be milled a few mm each to fit the smaller palet of the X666.

Really good quality camera mount. I bought the same mount from a different vendor a few months back which was made in a lot weaker material and cost more than twice of this one. This unit is is very rigid.
Takes a standard servo - mounting space is 42mm x 21mm.
