Hall effect gimbals on Devo 10 was created by Fallingwater
I feel like I can't possibly let a month pass by without ordering something drone-related from Banggood, and since this time - amazingly enough - I actually don't need any new motors or frames or other spares I've thought of adapting FrSky hall-effect gimbals to my Devo 10. I'm not particularly dissatisfied with the stock gimbals, but being that the Devo is my primary transmitter (and I like DeviationTX so much that if the Devo 10 died tomorrow I'd probably buy another one) I'd like to make it as good as it can possibly be.

Now, I don't have a 3D printer nor any way to fabricate adapters of any kind, so this is going to be a total hack job from a structural and aesthetic point of view. My idea is to cut up the gimbal supports as needed, stick them in and then secure them in place with a ton of two-part epoxy, silicone and/or and melt-glue. I'm not above cutting up the Devo's casing itself if required.

I have two questions before I start the project:

1) are they electrically compatible? I've seen a thread by someone who adapted them for a Devo 12S so I'm assuming yes, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
2) do I get M7 or M9 gimbals? I understand the difference is only in size - which would best fit the Devo 10's casing?

Any thoughts, opinions and/or recommendations are welcome :)

1) M7 or M9 gimbals electrically compatible with any transmitter.
2) Both M7 or M9 gimbals have the same dimensions, but different mounting holes at top plate. I think they can't be fit to other Devo transmitters, at least they can't be fit to Devo 8.

Would you have pictures of this? I'm very interested. What gimbals did you use? Did everything fit fine?

Also I like the SV650S :D I almost bought one, years ago...

Here is article (in Russian) how to upgrade stock Devo 10 gimbals with hall sensors. Looks doable, but not very easy

Im currently doing this to my f12e had to make changes to richard's stl file so it fits the different mounts.
I then made a few other changes to make them stiffer then purchased a 3d printer
