Turnigy have recognized the Mobius ActionCam as the go-to camera for the RC hobby and set out to make a low cost, light weight, quality component 2-Axis gimbal to match the Mobius’s smaller size.
The Turnigy Mobius gimbal started with the popular AX 2206 BLGM, perfect for its small size and being well known as a great motor. From there Turnigy had the motors custom made to match their spec. The Turnigy Mobius gimbal looked to one of the leaders in gimbals for their robust controller and easy GUI interface, settling on the Tarot 2 axis BGC as the heart of the Mobius gimbal and includes the USB programmer for future updates and configuration. Turnigy then set out to create a lightweight and robust frame around the Mobius and chosen hardware. The result is the one of best gimbals available and best of all it’s made specifically for the Mobius.

The assembly is straight forward and easy to do .But the problems started when I connected for the first time the battery, I was faced with a untamed wild jumping bronco gimbal ,that was in no way useful to take any video. Even after connecting to the configuring program I was not able to tame it.One motor was burnt through caused by the uncontrolled up and down jiggling of the gimbal, I have ordered a spare motor and could solve that part of the problem.
The program was saying the latest version software 1.5 was installed ,and all my attempts to tweak it via the configuration software failed.After hours of trying and fiddling on the settings I decided to reinstall the firmware 1.5 again ,and that solved the unmanageable gimbal in to a workable solution, I needed a long time to fine tune it but in the end its working smooth and without jiggle problems .So I think that the installed firmware was somehow damaged in some way. and now everything is working like it should do.
The construction of the gimbal is not very Mobius friendly ,the way it is to connect to the gimbal platform is a paste and cut work solution with double sided sticky tape and a rubber band ,while the camera comes with a perfect holder with camera thread, with a little creativity you can drill a hole yourself in the platform and still leave room for the gyroscope and accelerometers that are situated under the camera platform .
After this ,shall we say little set back ,I have now a nice working gimbal for little money.
Don't give up to eazy on it ,you can make it work ,it only needs a lot of your time and patience .I have adapted the Turnigy gimbal to use the RunCam2 camera. I made an aluminium holder attaching it with four small countersunk head bolts and nuts with lock washers. Under the holder is some thin sheet lead so that when there is no power the camera is completely balanced. A couple of rubber bands hold it in case of hard landings. My videos are now very smooth and great to view.precio bueno y calidad tambienEvery time that I connect the gimbal the motors do not start and the light sets at Green solid in mode Over current. Can anyone help me?Just finished installing this gimbal on my quad, for use with RunCam HD (similar in size to Mobius). Can't complain like the other reviews. Mine just works. No melting plastic, no blue smoke. Here's a couple of tips. Go to the same item at International Warehouse, and click on "videos" and "files". You'll get lots of good info. I downloaded the latest version 1.5 software before receiving my gimbal. but discovered it came with ver 1.5 in both gimbal and motor control, so I didn't need to re-flash. Will admit adjusting all the parameters was (and still is) a pain. Default settings are not for RunCam / Mobius. A couple of files suggest different settings, but I had to fiddle even with those to stop the jiggle. Still trying to fine tune, but getting pretty stable on my wobbly quad.Didn't have luck with this. Tuning is very difficult and I could never get smooth video no matter what I tried and I tried a lot over 3 months. The motors are also way overkill for a Mobius and the whole gimbal is very heavy to carry a light Mobius. Not worth the price.Purchase this a few weeks back and it's still not working. I'm sure its me, but getting this setup is a pain. Haven't spent a lot of time on it, but why isn't this sent already flashed so you don't have to do the find, flash and configure thing. I'd rather be flying.????? ?? ????? ??????, ?????????? ????? ??????! ???? ???????? ? ???????. ?????????? ? ?????? ???????. ???????? ??????, ????? ????????? ?????????????.Complete piece of cr@p!!! I've done everything possible to stop it shaking but it just doesn't stop to shake! New firmware 1.5 is on, moved gain in all directions, loaded every setup I could find, watched every video on how to fix it but nothing is helping, it just shakes and shakes. I'll record a video for waranty and than fix it with a hammer!Very accurate little gimbal for this price
