Load damping tube clamps are widely used in drone kits as a way to attach loading rails, gimbals and battery mounts to the frame. They utilise a rubber grommet that helps to eliminate high frequency vibrations.
These particular tube mounts from Tarot have been designed for its X series multirotor frames. They are taller than the standard mounts, giving an extra 16mm clearance, which is useful if you require more space to mount bigger batteries and so on. As with all Tarot products, the quality is excellent. The outer ring is CNC machined out of an aluminium alloy and anodised, while the rubber damper is made from a high grade silicone, which provides excellent vibration reduction.
For our range of compatible carbon fibre tubes and accessories, see 'Related Products' below.

Vibration dampening and isolation: Flight electronics and particularly the accelerometer within flight controllers (FCs) are sensitive to vibrations. Excessive vibration can results in very bad performance, in the worse case rendering the craft unflyable. Vibration control is also important in respect to capturing aerial video and imagery. SLR’s and CMOS cameras (e.g. the GoPro) are plagued by the Jello effect otherwise known as rolling shutter. This is because they use a scanning system to capture their imagery, which vibration causes to magnify the problem.
Before you embark on vibration control, you should focus your efforts on eliminating the sources of vibration: unbalanced props/adapters/motors, worn-out bearings and frame flex etc are all things to consider. A smartphone and a suitable vibration recording app is useful for testing. If you have optimised the above, then move onto vibration control. Vibration control can be tackled from two directions: Isolation which is the process of removing an object, such as the FC from the source of vibrations; and dampening which is the conversion of vibration into heat energy by a shock absorbing medium. The latter is usually easier and more often employed by using either rubber, gel or foam. The end goal in both cases is to provide high and medium frequency vibration reduction, while still allowing low frequency - actual flight control board movement to take place in concert with the airframe.

DHL is a good option for larger consignments and remote locations such as Northern Ireland and Isle of Man. All high value orders are fully insured and will likely require a signature on delivery.
FREE shipping in the UK on orders over £99 (this is a signed for service and insured to a maximum of £40). Please note that the offer only applies to orders with a total weight under 1Kg and that a few products are exempt from the offer, such as LiPo batteries.
International Postage: We are based in the UK, but ship to most worldwide destinations. Postage rates are calculated by the weight and shipment location, the price is quoted during the checkout. Low value order can be sent by Air Mail, but are not insured. Higher value, heavy goods will be sent with DHL or an alternative courier. Orders shipped outside the UK may be subject to customs charges. These charges are additional to any delivery costs and will need to be paid by the recipient.
For our international customers who require a rapid delivery we off a DHL Express service. DHL Express offers NEXT DAY delivery to most European destinations and a very fast delivery for countries further afield, generally 2-3 days. For country specific estimated transit times, please refer this download.
