This discounted bundle has everything you'll need to use 1 or 2 Survey3 cameras with the DJI Mavic 3 (Classic, Normal, Cine, 3E, 3T, 3M) drone. The mount allows you to easily attach either 1 or 2 Survey3 cameras at a time without requiring any tools. Each camera can be easily rotated and locked to adjust the tilt angle to keep the camera as parallel (nadir) with the ground during forward flight. The camera's Advanced GPS is mounted on the top of the drone, and will include a dual split GPS cable if you purchase the dual camera bundle. Simply choose the model of the camera(s) and the micro SD memory capacities to complete your package.
Included in a single (1) DJI Mavic 3 Survey3 camera bundle:
Step 1: Make sure the camera is in the defaultInterval timer capture mode. Install the camera (with battery) by sliding it into the frame mount. Use the included black plastic camera bolt in the camera's tripod mounting hole to secure camera to mount.
Step 2: Slide the collar frame adapter into the collar, and slide the camera frame into the collar adapter. Attach the GPS plate.
Step 3: Peel off the red adhesive backing on the bottom of the Advanced GPS receiver and attach to the DJI Mavic 3 Camera Mount - GPS Plate. MAPIR corn logo points forward as shown. The adhesive is very strong and typically one time use. If you need to replace it you should use 3M VHB clear or similar tape. The cables exit out the back of the GPS towards the rear of the vehicle.
Step 4: Unthread the black thumb knob on the collar, open the hinged top of the collar and place the drone into the collar. Notice which side the thumb knob is on and orient it the same.
Step 5: Check the mount is surrounding the bottom drone camera, then flip back over the hinged collar top and tighten to secure it to the vehicle. Make sure the two ends of the collar at the thumb knob are fully seated/touching.
Step 6: This mount can carry up to two Survey3 cameras, with one camera flipped over. Rotate the cameras such that when the drone is flying forward the camera is as parallel with the ground as possible (adjust angle based on expected flight speed tilt). Lock the rotation of the camera frames by tightening the set screws using the included hex key.
Step 7: Route the GPS wires along the frame mount side clips to keep the wires away from the propellers.
Your mount is now ready to use.
We recommend usinglens protectorson the Survey3 cameras to protect the lenses from debris during take-off and landing. You can also look into purchasing leg extenders to raise the height of the drone (not available from MAPIR).
