I was lucky to find one still breathing, merely a carcass, and successfully connect the X5S camera borrowed from my perfectly fine and healthy Inspire ... 50 hours later the camera looks like that (here shown mounted on a shoulder rig):

looks really clean . We are building an x7 into a x class racing drone as I write this. Our ground rigs have come out great and I will share some vids soon. We have projected a car and motorcycle mount as well as a rover. I just made a smaller rover that can do about 50....pretty scary with an x7 but it was perfect for our needs.glad to see you made it work. Thanks.

Nice conversion but looks too bulky for handheld work. I'm still using Osmo with x5r and think it's the best small form camera that can record raw dng. But yeah if you already have all the carcas of the i2 it's reasonable conversion :)

Certainly, I'm using Osmo X5R as well, even Osmo Pocket when bulkiness is the issue. However, having access to X7 set expands the whole picture (pun intended) significantly. After all, it was more of a challenge with myself than anything else :) ...

thanks for sharing!
thinking about a stipped down x5s version as well and put it on a very light frame

I wouldnt call it a race drone but , but a more lightweight and precise flying drone (compared to the I2)
if anybody has done this would be nice to share more ideas

No way, the camera itself+cinecore module is to heavy for any aircraft lighter than Inspire ...

Yes, the system is fully capable to record CineDNG or ProRes on SSD, assuming license present. Why would you need GPS on it? The camera body only weight 710 g, X5S gimbal average 475 g (lens dependent)...

I saw your first post and thought it was my photo of one of my Inspire 2 carcasses. I wonder how many of use have boxes of seriously damaged Inspire 2's.
Surprisingly not too many. Most of damaged drones are fixed or replaced under DJI Care insurance/warranty. To find a carcass with signs of life for sale is next to impossible, took me several months to get one for this project ...
