FPV 2-Axis Brushless Camera Gimbal w/ Motor & Controller for DJI Phantom Gopro 3


Project Review - Value for money brushless gimbal

Synopsis: We have been looking for a quality gimbal for aerial filming, to allow us to survey an area with camera stabilization. There are probably over 20 selections of gimbals out in the market, notably the expensive Dji Zenmus and Tarot gimbals. We wanted a gimbal that has a motion processing unit to stabilize our camera while in flight.  Working with Hobbywow.com, we have decided to test this unbranded but quality gimbal to see how it fair.   We selected the FPV 2-Axis Brushless Camera Gimbal w/ Motor & Controller for DJI Phantom Gopro 3.  This selection is based on the budget price, it's stand-alone built ready to use controller that can be installed on any aircraft with any light weight pocket camera, the GUI software SimpleBGC and performance. As usual, we like working with Hobbywow, as their customer service has been excellent to help answer any questions we may have. More videos and test to follow.
