The Quanum Single Axis Gimbal is an excellent package for the FPV flier. It comes complete with a 600TVL camera being driven by a brushless single axis gimbal.
The gimbal comes with a mode switch that allows two different modes; following and lock. The gimbal can also be adjusted manually when setup to be controlled by a rotary knob on your transmitter.
This is perfect for both FPV fliers or for use with aerial photography.

I purchased this gimbal, despite reading poor reviews and reports of many people having problems with it and/or the camera. I personally found this gimbal to be beautifully engineered and simple to set up and get working first time. However, I did first remove the VT600 camera, and after constructing a small plastic plate, mounted the DV04 camera originally supplied with my Walkera QRX350. I did this because the DV04 is capable of recording. I resisted the temptation to mount my GoPro as I felt sure it would be too heavy for the gimbal to function correctly, which is after all, quite a lightweight unit.
I have been flying my drone this morning, and the stability and results from the camera/gimbal set-up are amazing and beyond my expectations.
The photographs of this gimbal suggest it's a 'pan' gimbal, but that's not the case. As far as I can tell, it is suitable for 'tilt' only, which is perfect for my application.
Possibly one of the reasons why others have experienced video interference is that the supply for the camera and the video out cable are all fed from the gimbal control board, which is never a good idea, whereas I removed the camera and feed cables from the gimbal and fed my DV04 direct from my 5.8gHz Tx, and have a perfectly clean signal. Maybe if the VT600 was fed in a similar manner, the interference would be eliminated.The utility of this gimbal is "zero" 0 !!! Poor instruction... For 40 Euro is better make a did yourself gimbal ... of course if make yourself you are sure that work !
