HobbyKing introduces the ActionCam Gimbal, a quality built universal sports camera brushless gimbal.
The ActionCam Gimbal frame is made up of precision cut carbon that is ingeniously mated to aluminum supports, for a simple yet strong frame. For stabilized motion, the gimbal is fitted with two 2208 gimbal motors pre-wired with JR style connectors, for plug-and-play compatibility with most controllers. One of the ActionCam Gimbal’s best features is its versatility with 2 top mounting options and a wide range of camera sizes it can support. The upper mount has 4 vibration isolation balls to stop the “jello” effect and supports both hook/rod and flat standoff attachment options. The lower camera mount (68mm wide) and adjustable velcro strap can handle a wide range of small 200-300 gram action type of cameras, like the GoPro or even the Mobius laid down flat. The ActionCam Gimbal allows for your preference of the many available Brushless Gimbal Controllers, such as our Quanum AlexMos or Martinez 2 axis controllers.
The HobbyKing ActionCam Brushless Gimbal is a fantastic alternative to the pricey proprietary gimbals, allowing more options and value.

Nice gimbal overall, but it's very tall and therefore does not fit to niche on my HK480 quad frame with standard landing gears.Overall good product - well fitted parts.
Behave nicely with Storm32. Soon making mod to 3 axis.
Some issues anyway:
1. Holes for motors are a little bit to small.
2. 3x 20mm on one side eachone with wrong holes (bigger). Fortunately I've replacement for them.
3. No manual - you are receiving bag of 3d puzzles. Fortunately guides are easy to find on internet.
Looks good. had to find an instructable to assemble it.
some pieces were very difficult to put together as they were a tight fit.
Didn't realise I needed a Gimbal controler aswell (I'm a novice so my mistake)
I bought this thing a year or two ago and just got around to putting it together. It is needlessly complicated. Mine has a missing standoff for the rear motor mount which makes the mount less rigid that it should have been. Because of balance issues with my RunCam2, and the fact that it is outrageously tall, I ended up scrapping all the carbon fiber parts. I designed a new one - much more compact - and 3D printed it.
I did use the motors, but quite frankly 2206 motors would have been better.
This gimbal will have your camera dragging in the grass unless you have some kind of enormously tall crab legs on it. Forget about using it on a Predator 650 even though it has a hook/rod system.received product surprisingly fast, and as usual with HK stuff no instructions and also as usual "aint no thing" because there are plenty of pictures to assist with assembly. I very much like the quality of this Gimbal, feels very sturdy. Will post about it's operation after I begin flight testottimo prodotto, peccato che non ci sia allegato uno schema di costruzione.More than 100 separate pieces, Without manual assembly ? NO NO NO ...
No files by assembly uploaded on hobyking ..........it was hard to assemble without manual, but I have found some here:
http://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/hobbyking-brushless-gimbal-assembly-tutorialNo manual no problem.
Great gimbal for that price. The carbon pices are cut perfectly and they fit very well. The screws are black instead of silver and the motorcables aren't colored.Quality/price
... the price
do the job as expected, even better ...
- taller than expected
Excellent product !
