Ok after I finished balancing and powering the gimbal I can give you my first impressions. I use 3x 5208 motors with a 4s Battery and a Canon 7D with a 24-85mm. Pitch is working fine, YAW okisch(settings not motor) and ROLL not at all, no matter how high I go with the power settings, the motor is simply not strong enough. The whole weight of the roll/pitch axis with camera is resting on the roll motor shaft and pushing the motor so hard down that it wont work. I need to find a better motor now. I use the 32bit AlexMos Board. I will write more as soon as I have played with it a little more.

i just ordered this gimbal two days ago and i am asking if can suport Red Epic.
 Matt 2 points
I don't see any reason an Epic wouldn't fit on this. However I highlight doubt the 5208 motors will have enough torque for an Epic. It says on the motors 900-1900 grams (I think) and I can tell you that even with a DSLR that weighs about 1300-1400 grams you have to make sure everything is PERFECTLY balanced to get it to work well. I know that HK sells a larger gimbal motor, perhaps that would work, but I havent tried it.

I do have it now since 4 days and still trying to get my 7D perfectly balanced. Don't get me wrong I generally like the product it's just the pitch part I don't like. It's super annoying to balance and the slider to for head and bottom balance are was too short. I had to put about 120gramm weight into the bottom tube to shift the centre of gravity into the right spot. Motors aside, I just can't see how you can put enough weights there plus the red and still hope the small aluminum is holding a long time. Maybe if you build your own pitch part and use stronger motors, but stock a 7/5D is the heavyest it can handle. Not sure about 1D because it's so high maybe with even more weights.

It arrived yesterday. Started to assemble but realise now you need the M3x8 screws. The motors only come with 4 M2.5 screws but you also need M3 screws for the other side of the motors. Would have been handy to have the nylon spacers too to mount the circuit board. I can source them locally. Also the instructions aren't that clear but I figured it out. There's a part left over which is not shown on the build but listed in the BOM. Only downside really is that fact I had to pay an extra $70 for import duty and tax.

It's a pitty that no-body from Hobbyking can inform me the deliverytime. So this was my first and last visit to them.

Overall this is worth every penny. Couple of things to note: - This comes with no screws for the motors. If you buy the 5208 motors they list here you will also need to buy the M3x8 screws since the motors only come with screws for one side. HOWEVER, the M3x8 screws are too long and so I used 2 small washers between the plates and the motors to make them the right length. This also helps so that the c-clip on the motor doesn't rub up against the plate. - The yaw motor has screws in place so that the motor is mounted upside down. I put new holes in it so that I could mount the 5208 motor right side up < this way the cable sits below the handles and can spin infinitely around the yaw axis without binding. - When you open the product up there will be a lot of carbon dust over all the parts. You may want to wash them first before assembly. I didn't and my hands turned pretty black by the time I was done. - It says this in the instructions but since the hardware is aluminum, don't overtighten, you will strip the screws. - This doesn't come with any stand-offs for the controller or IMU... you will need to provide your own. - Assembly tip: always slide pieces to the center before you put things on the end of a tube... I had to re-assemble things a few times. Otherwise this is a great kit. And for the price I'm not complaining.
