I recently bought a Gear 360 Camera to play around.
Soon it was clear that it would be cool to mount it to my Phantom 4

Here is the first test video. To watch it you need a 360 enabled browser (e.g. Chrome) - and you need to put in youtube settings the resolution to 4K.


This is how my setup looks:

The video above was done with the shorter camera mount. As the Phantom is still pretty large in the video above, I designed a longer mount which I will test tomorrow.

As the setup is not specific to the Samsung Camera, it can get used with any other (e.g. Nikon Keymission, Kodak, etc.)

The setup I designed you can find on Shape ways

Looks like a cool setup, can't wait to see the video! Make sure your mount does not interfere with your vps. A take off pad would be easy to make but I think you will be hand catching.:)

Sorry I forgot the video Link


I start and land out of my hand. I also thought of a takeoff pad, but then you always need to carry it with you.

This has potential, can you run this video (with software of course) to view with VR goggles and look around?

Yes, if you have a Smartphone and Google cardboard glasses, you can even watch that video in your VR glasses. You just click on the glasses icon in the youtube browser.
For sure it also works with all the other frames you can get. So no additional software needed.

have a P3P version of it for the LG 360?
I don't have a P3P, but if you sent me the diameter from the bottom bars of the Landing gear and the distance (Midpoint to Midpoint) I can adjust the design of the Payload Bridge.

Interestingly i.ve found the gear 360 doesn.t seem to need stablizing at all to vibrations as the stitching software (action director) seems to do a good job of stabilizing. So u might find u can get rid of all the rubber dampener gear and the video looks the same

What does get nauseating is fast movement in one direction. As the viewer will experience this as motion
