nice gimball and easy to customise. and the price !!!! I Will buy 3 moreVery good for the price 0.64!!
I really cannot complain at that price. but if i really had to moan it would be 2 things.
NO instructions, i had to build it by copying from the website photo
The graphite needs to be filled to fit into the slots. then i glued it to make sure it wouldnt come apartProdotto di buona fattura, nessun problema nell'assemblaggio ma chiaramente essendo in fibra risulta fragile agli urti.the skids connection and post's is very weak going in force at that pointVery tight fitting parts, and solid hardware. As others have mentioned, worth it for the camera mount alone. USA West selling at only $4.99 (at time of review) http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=35019Great product, very flexible and easy to assemble.Pretty decent little mount. The gimbal is fine, though I would recommend a high quality servo to compensate for the cheap bearing assembly. I used a bunch of zip ties to attach it to my DJI Naza Flamewheel 450. I sandwiched some pieces of surgical tubing in between the quad frame and the landing gear, to help isolate the camera from vibrations. Works pretty well.This fit perfectly my Turnigy Talon V1 Hexacopter. No modification needed although it does change the battery mounting point. It could use a cross strut (or cable) to support extra load, but otherwise a nice fit and weight.Looks flimsy but works well and is pretty sturdy once it is together. Fitment is very tight just when you think you have it together as tight as it will go it moves a little more. 4 stars because it takes the camera far enough away from all the electronics and when mounted on the skids like I did there is little to no vibrations, so no noise little to no vibrations what we all want when filming in the air. It comes with no instructions or epoxy but with these pictures I got it together then used 5 minute epoxy to make sure it stays together. Only real downfall of this is when you flush mount your heli to it the canopy will not fit so either you cut the canopy to fit or just mount it to the skids like I did. All in all its good and works better than it looks there are definitely better products but for 20$ I can not complain it does what I need it to. Last note on this is when mounted to the skids there is a perfect plate to mount a smaller camera I am going to use that for FPV.Simple and easy but good.
