Want to fly a real camera anything bigger then a GH4 with a pancake lens, forget it the frame design is way too weak, the 5208 motors won't cut it, trust me! There is no structural support for the motors, all the weight of you camera and accessories hangs off a m3 and m2.5 screw straight off the motor. I upgraded to LD9017 motors for the yaw and pitch but be mindful they are 400 so grams each! The weight of the gimbal is insane you need hercules to handle this! Back to the upgrade, the yaw is essential you will need a bigger motor for anything close to 1.7kg (5dmkII and 24-70mm or 50mm Sigma Art Prime) I regret buying this it's a true amateur hour gimbal. At the end of the day there are better options out there and don't be fooled the 5208 motors are not what your looking for, maybe for a gopro but for anything that weights close to plus 1kg you will need bigger motors. Lastly the carbon tubes I got were way shorter then advertised. There are absolutely no screws to attach any of the brushless motors. You will need m3 x 6mm NOT 8mm unless you want to poke your motors' bearings and m2.5 x 6mm. Get a 32bit board the advertised 8bit is truly old school and worthless. Carefully calculate the costs, you will definitely need to invest 3x what your paying here to get a working model!

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.

Before you buy make sure you can view the 3axis controller as its not showing as a related product, also no switch comes with the controller and they don't show this as a related product, HK don't even reply to posts when you ask where it is? Not a easy product to set up takes about 3 hours to build the gimbal and about another two hours to connect a solder, then you will get to the stage I'm at at trying to connect to the computer in which its not clear how to configure due to HK taking off the 3 axis controller in which the document files are on that page in order to download and click through on the web links to 3rd party websites in order to download drivers etc.

I've built two of these gimbals with large motors and 32 bit AlexMos controllers and they work. However, this gimbal does not work well with a large DSLR. The main reason is the walls of the carbon fiber tubing used are very thin (1.0mm thickness), and so the entire lower portion of the frame from the yaw motor down actually flexes slightly when operating with larger cameras. The controller tries to compensate for this, but what ends up happening is you get slight vibrations in the footage, usually on the roll axis. If you look at some of the larger gimbals built from carbon fiber tubing, you will see in photos that the wall thickness of their tubing is slightly greater. All that would have to be done to fix this is to upgrade the tubing from 1.0mm thickness to 2.0mm. This would greatly reduce the flex in the frame. I am in the process of upgrading both of my Turnigy gimbals to 2.0mm thick CF.

compre este gimbal por su bajo pecio, y me parece que en general esta bien aunque me llego con una rosca dañada. tambien llega bastante sucio por lo que es mejor lavarlo antes de armarlo para no terminar con las manos negras del polvo. En cuanto al los ajustes para el balanceo me parece que debieron diseñarlo mejor ya que es algo incomodo la hubicacion de los tornillos que hay que aflojar para poder mover los tubos del marco en la direccion que queramos para balancearlo. La electronica q le puse fue un controlador alexmos 32bit dual sensor, 2 motores turnigy 5208 y 1 turnigy 9017. Al principio fue algo complicado balancear y configurar el gimbal, pero despues que lo logres todo funciona excelente.

Ive built and sold several of these, regret my last purchase not going through here. Motor selection is key! Balance is next, then tuning from pitch, to roll then lastly yaw. I use a bluetooth link to my phone to 100pcnt be sure there is no weight difference. Battery charge also makes a big impact during the tune. If it goes away quickly you are constantly tuning againest the clock. The old 8bit I can get decent time on full size dslr, with 32 bit I get 20 mins of good tuning time with the sony nex for a base line on 1300mah 20c. If you feel you are adding more than 100pcnt power, really should check for absolute perfect balance. Remeber the angle of the boom drop can change everything. Used on; 810 tarot, 10 mile hike in my hand. And also small indy films. If you dont build this kind of thing normally, should really consider letting someone. $200 in motors alone misstake can suck. Ive spent hundreds testing for all the applications I do. This isnt a traxxas rustler where you drop in the hop ups and go, there is real setup, and real time invested. Ive taken 4 hours over 5 days to make these stunning.
