hi there. i've made jc final 2013 version and i came across one problem: the sides are higher than supposed standoffs. i mean the side and camera holder are 1.5 inch and 1.496 wich translates in roughly 38.1 mm wich is more than what i expected 37 mm and the djii arms are like 36.something mm. Is everybody experiencing this ? i mean i have to place a lot of spacers under the two djjii arm screws like 3 spacers or somethig. could this be fixed ?
The JC version is imperial and has 1.5" stand offs. You need to buy or machine 1.5" stand offs and then shim out the difference between the DJI legs and the bottom or top plate. I dont like this and so I drew up and cut a file that hass 37mm side walls. No shims required. However, this means that I spend 1hr just in making custom stand offs (14) for my frames and then the 30 minutes to cut each frame. So it is a lot of work, but the product is better. Having said that, I expect Luis does it this way to keep the cost of the unit down as each unit probably costs me money if i were to charge for labour.
Search the thread as I did post my version of the file with the 37mm side walls. You can take the walls from this file and just cut them again. But as i said, you may have to make the stand offs as I couldn't find any at 37mm.
Good luck and please post pictures
