I purchased this item and it was missing a carbon fiber tube, the vertical "spine" of the gimbal. I sent it back, and the replacement was also missing the same tube. The parts are quality, but that doesn't mean much if you can't put it together.I find this is very good value for the price as so many others are so much more expensive and are not much better. If anyone has a concern about the support bearing opposite the pitch motor..... this little item takes it up to the next level: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/MV005-brushless-gimbal-2-5mm-tilt-mount-of-bearing-with-locking-nut-1set-pack/109347_952000247.html
And these can help for adjusting the larger cameras: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/MV017-updated-4mm-thick-DUAL-ADJUSTABLE-TILT-BAR-1set/109347_965312742.html
