I was at GeekFest yesterday with my hexacopter and did a few demos for people there. For the main demo one of the photographers there gave me a gopro to put on the hexacopter so we could get an onboard perspective.
This was the first time I have put a camera on it without ANY vibration dampening.

the gopro was attached to the center plate using only a couple of pieces of electrical tape.
No deshaker or any post processing was used, its pretty much raw video with some clips taken out and new ones from a cellphone added in.

its amazing how stable the hexacopter is and how well the 3d printed ABS motor mounts and arm clamps pretty much eliminate any vibration going to the camera and sensors

Are all your arms wrapped in tape?
Could this be smoothing out the air flow past the arms and reducing vibration?

Wow, it's like these people have never seen a multi-rotor aircraft before. What planet was this?:D
