Is Hobbyking going to start stocking the clamps that come with this gimbal? The reason I ask is because my gimbal came with a clamp that has bad threads, and it would be nice if I could buy spares, but all I'm finding are the bolt/nut type, not any bolt to threaded block like these. I know I could make a bolt/nut type work, but these threaded type are much easier to work with (Only one tool and hand required) and make aligning and balancing so much easier.

Hello, can i use this as a gimbal with an exacter? thx
 Manuel 10 points
whats an exacter?
 claudio 1 points
i mean exacopter, a multicopter, multirotor.
 Manuel 10 points
Ah ok :-) Yeah you can. The yaw motor can eather be mounted directly to a plate on your multicopter or you can use the normal plate to do it.

Im little bit lost here. So do you or do you not use zoom on that lens? How long does it take to rebalance the gimball when changing zoom or whole lens for another one?
 Manuel 10 points
as mentioned below you cannot zoom during shoot exept with a remote follow focus on the zoom ring. You should be good balance wise with a well balanced gimbal with good pid values and an in case zoom (no increasing tube lenght) Switching from one lense to another is done in seconds with the camara mounting screw and pushing the camera back or forth a little bit.

Hi Manuel Im looking for gimball for my 6D 24-105 lens. This setup weights about 1500g. I understand that 3x5208 motors arent enough. Are you satisfied with your 5208 2x9017 setup? Isn't it too heavy to operate? It's like: 1500g camera 1000g gimbal 1000g motors Aku, cables, electronics etc. 3000g minimum I guess. Seems like a lot for me. Do you have some videos already? Thanks a lot!

I have a 1600g camera and it works great as long as you balance it VERY WELL! First mine was unbalanced (a little) and I thought my motors would be too weak.
 Ondrej 1 points
What motors do you have for that camera? I'm afraid that 24-105 F4 lens isn't much usable for this kind of stabilizer is it? Because of lens length change when zooming. This will make big influence to gimball balancing am I right? Is this a big trouble? Can anyone tell? Thank you

My camera has a 18-200 lens on is and I use the zoom because it wil change the balance of the gimbal causing too much weight on the motors. I just use the Turnigy 5208 motors.

Haha sorry I was tired when I wrote that, I meant I can't use the zoom. *)

Technically you can use the zoom with a Remote Followfocus system or a DIY variant of it. Bas I don't know how your Roll motor 5208 keep up with the weight of your setup mine didn't move 1mm. The whole system is pretty heavy but you can easyly hold it up on head hight if you're not completely out of shape. Balancing for a new lense/zoom is done in seconds. You just need to adjust the camera back or forth. the Whole right left and yaw balance won't get affected too much. I realy like the LD9017s so wouldn't go with anything smaler on roll and yaw even with a smaler DSLR. The only thing I need to change on my setup is the yaw holding plate. It's to thin and bounces when i walk. Will change that to aluminum in the near future.

Ok guys finished the build with the 2 LD9017 motors. After a quick setup it works fine. Sure I need to finetune everything but for now its nice. I will now write down my adjusted items list to get this gimbal to work with full size DSLRs (7D/5D): 2xLD9017 gimbal motor (YAW,ROLL) 1xHD5208 (PITCH) 6xTube Clamp 25mm (you cant reach the screws between roll axis and roll motor and between yaw motor and axis because of the larger motor diameter so you need them to fix that) 5.6mm x 13mm M3 Nylon Threaded Spacer M3 Nylon Nuts Hex Screw M3x8 M3x6 Shock Washer (3.2x7x0.5mm) 14AWG Silicon Wire red/black connector of your choice Soft Ferrite Rings 16x7x10 Servo Terminals (JR) Gold Plated (simple motor connectors) Additionally gear I used: 4s 3000mAH LiPo Zip Ties Camera Mounting Screw double sided tape (mount IMUs)

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.
