Tarot T-2D V2 GoPRO 3 Brushless Camera Gimbal and ZYX22 Controller
Tarot needs no introduction, their name is synonymous with quality and their 2 axis ZYX22 gimbal controller and T-2D v2 brushless gimbal for the GoPRO 3 is no exception.
The Tarot’s T-2D v2 gimbal is designed specifically for the infamous commercial quality Gopro Hero3. Using 6061T6 aluminum alloy full CNC precision machining, and their incorporation of the brushless motors as part of the overall framework reduces size and weight. The T-2D has been engineered to perfectly balance out with the GoPro3 so the load on the motors is minimized and require almost no tuning. The T-2D v2 comes with a new style two layer vibration isolation mount and BLGC mount and has various new frame mounting options.
The Tarot ZYX22 Brushless gimbal controller is unique from all the other run of the mill BLGC on the market. They removed the FTDI chip from the board to save size and weight, but is just as easy to use with the included USB adapter. The Tarot’s computer user interface for setup and tuning (if required) is the easiest and most intuitive seen yet. The Tarot packs in more options, like support for rate mode or position mode as-well as custom initial pitch angle, and support for standard RC input as well as S.BUS and Direct DSM2/DSMX input via a satellite receiver. The T-2D combo is simply the most refined brushless gimbal for a GoPro 3 on the market.
Features: • Vibration isolation mounting (new version) • Integrated motor and frame design • GoPro 3 direct mounting • Supply voltage polarity protection and voltage compensation • Short-circuit protection • Custom initial pitch angle • Sensitivity parameter adjustment support and software • Supports joystick rate mode and position mode • Dual 32-bit high-speed ARM core processor • Easy to use software

Quick question, I am seeing a lot of videos about opening up the tarot software to calibrate etc, however if I am using the DJI Naza lite, could I just use the Naza assistant software for the gimbal calibration? I'm not sure if I need to do both. Thanks in advance!
After assembly and powered by a 3s battery I'm unable to make the camera stay level. The roll axis is making a pretty violent/fast shaking until I move it by hand to the zero/center position. Then when I test the roll function by rolling the gimbal it starts this shaking on the roll axis again. Does anyone have any ideas? The tilt axis works fine.
IT happen to me, First verify and be SURE that both motors are on the correct plug. Then connect it to the PC and software. Be sure to calibrate it with the camera installed and looking upward, flat and looking toward the board. Then hit calibrate.
I have upgraded the firmware to 1.5. I calibrated the gimbal face up. I have verified that the plugs are in the correct locations. One motor is working great. The other is twitchy.
Mine came with instructions for the V1 model, but it isn't terribly hard to figure out how to assemble it. The unit does suffer from micro-vibrations when idle, but once you are in-flight and the motors are constantly working, you don't really notice it in the video. For the money, you really can't go wrong. I'm running mine off my main 4s pack and it works great, just have to turn down the gains a little bit.
Works out of the box, minimal assembly required, very fair price. Could weigh a little less with glass/CF arms, but the tradeoff is acceptable because it's very solidly-built. As always, protect it from crashes with landing gear.

hello I you buy the tarot t2d v2
but or then I to find the software d' installation and which s' opens?
thank you d' advance

V2 doesn't mean upgraded, it seems cheaper version of T-2D, they are plastic mount instead carbon and don't even come with gopro cable.
product working fine
