Apparently Pro doesn't make gyro mounts anymore. Anyone know where I can score some sort of gyro mount for a Pro battery module 3?

 

thanks

Will a post clamp work on the post holding the rear two batts?

I think that's the idea of the gen3 base, it looks like it's the same dimensions. The only problem would be you'd need to remove both of the rear battery mounts, so you'd only have the front battery position available.

I was thinking to remove the front battery and clamp it here...or make a secure plate to attach a dovetail then use the plate mount (needs a sold base/foot anyways in my opinion) that way only the front battery is lost. That being said, I do not own a gen3 base and have only played around a little with it so there's a lot of guessing on my part
