If you read my subscription on YouTube....
But here it is.
So I purchased a cheap, in excellent condition, second hand Yuneec Steady Grip from eBay.
I wanted to attach my Typhoon H CGO3+ Camera to it. I tried with 8 AA batteries and after 15 minutes they were flat, but it had at least worked. So I decided to do the LiPo upgrade with a couple of extras.
First thing you need is the Steady Grip.
1. It must have a slide on connector with three pins. (Not just the 3 pin plug)
2. It needs to be the 8 AA battery version, not the 6 AA.
I purchased this battery, it fits perfectly.

This is the LiPo battery voltage tester and low voltage alarm I used.

I also used the XT60Plus plugs.

But I have decided to swap these to the EC2 connectors as they are a little smaller and the same as inside the ST16 controller and I already have a charge lead with that type of connector on my LiPo charger.

Lastly this great little double pole toggle switch, from Jaycar.

I plan on adding this 2.5A USB adapter when it arrives.

Thanks for watching.
Hi could someone tell me if the Steadygrip works fine with the CGO3+ from the Typhoon H without modding?
I am about to purchase mine and I was thinking of using the CGO3+ with the Steadygrip for Vlogging.
