Pros:It works! for the money you will not find a better Gimbal for a GoPro, All you have to do is plug it in to a 3s Lipo Pack, mount this under your MultiRotor with your camera on it, and off you go. I have a $700+ Gimbal and this works just as good, at a lot less price.
Cons:Cons, it is on the heavy side but not to the point it make it manageable.
Other Thoughts:I would like to see this with more mounts for better way's to mount to other MultiRotor's as well as a programming cable and some software for upgrades.
Bottomline:Add the ease of use the cost,and you have a winner! I have used this gimbal in 30 mile an hour winds with great stability , what more can you ask for?

Pros:Great gimbal for the money! It does everything I want it to. I use the pitch control lever all the time. This gimbal keeps my GoPro 3 White perfectly level at all times.
Cons:No instructions. However, there are plenty of informative videos on the internet.
Other Thoughts:Play with the Naza Assistant for your Phantom. Try using + instead of - control, and watch the gimbal actually follow your Phantom's movements instead of counteracting them.
Bottomline:This is my second one, and I'm very happy with it.

Pros:good gimbal for the money work out of the box got this gimbal to mod it for my p2v with the p2v camera after the mods I made to the camera so it would fit on the gimbal works great
Cons:not sure if its a 8 bit board or a 32 bit board need to for the software so if someone could let me know that would be great
Other Thoughts:ok not paper work with this gimbal but that would only put the price if there was but loads of info on youtube
Bottomline:if you want a cheap gimbal to play around with or you have not got the money for the well known ones you cant go wrong with this gimbal

Pros:Good price to quality ratio. Seems stable when I tilt it in every direction. I will test it on my quad when it is warmer outside.
Cons:No manual. You can find information on the web but it is not readily available. A little heavy. Considering the very light weight of the goPro or Mobius cameras, the aluminum frame could be thinner.
Other Thoughts:I am not sure the wiring was done properly on my version but it is not a major problem. I would have preferred a wire to go behind the camera mount, not in front. Hard to explain here without posting a picture.
Bottomline:I saw that firmware version 2.4 is available. My gimball came with version 2.2. When I try to flash using the software on the web, I get an error message (I forgot exactly what it is). Anyhow, did anybody succeed in upgrading to 2.4???

Pros:Cheap, well packed, fast delevery.
Cons:Gimball was not complete: 1 rubber dampener was missing.
Once connected the gimball works but it "twitches" about 30 degrees in the roll direction when the gimball is moving fast or when I gently tap on the gimball mount.
After that it levels out. Anyone knows what causes this?
Also when the drone is standing perfecttly still the motors are humming and you can feel the gimball vibrating.
Not sure but I don't think this is normal behaviour.
Other Thoughts:I used SimpleBGC 2.2b2 to see if I could update firmware or calibrate the gimball to fix the twitching problem.
Hardware (1) and firmware version (2.2B2) were shown, but new firmware could not be installed.
I then tried the button "reset to defaults". I should't have done that, because immediately after clicking the button the gimball stopped working...
Can anyone help me with the default settings of this gimball so I can correct these in the SimpleBGC?
Bottomline:Not satisfied (yet)

Cons:you need to know what you are doing. As mentioned before there is no instruction manual.
Other Thoughts:very good gimbal for a cheap prize.
Bottomline:my pids for brugi fw are: pitch(P:11 I:20 D:17 pwm:30) and roll(P:20 I:20 D:40 pwm:40) !!and make sure to balance your gimbal!!

Pros:Price , plug and play. Works we'll with hero2. Super strong
Cons:No manual.
Other Thoughts:My phantom remote had to be updated in order to get pitch control to work.
To update remote firmware ,Dji's RC assist software it's to be found on phantom2 downloads ONLY. Cannot update with Naza assist software.

I have crashed this thing hard a couple of times now but still work nicely.
Sometimes you might have to go back to defaults in simplegbc software if it's shaky or gets spasms
Bottomline:Be prepared to read a lot. Go to simplebgc.com/en and you will find usefull info as well as the driver and assist software in downloads.
Wasn't able to get firmware update installed so I have to use older assist software matching to my gimbals firmware. I had to use 2.2b2
Make sure to connect ground and the signal cable to Naza for pitch control. Without ground it will cause issues after a while.

Pros:Arrived surprisingly quickly (10 days). Build quality is very good and when connected straight out of the box performed flawlessly, this video was shot 10mins after the postman delivered: http://youtu.be/xravpdGCvD8
Cons:I've marked it down on "Ease of Use" and "Build Quality Rating" for a few reasons.
1. No documentation, as many have made the same critism.
2. The wiring loom from the main board to the small PCB was fouling in the mechanism.
3.The server leads are too short to reach the Naza.
Other Thoughts:When I removed the wiring from the main board to the small PCB on the arm and reconnected it the Gimbal was DEAD!!!
Inspection showed that the PCB has five pins but the cable only has four. Moving the connector back one pin was the cure. This may explain DOA gimbals
Bottomline:For the money, and if you're prepared to do your own research, then this gimble is very good value for money. Remember to alter the gain settings of your Phantom as the added weight at the front will cause it to lurch forward on take-off

Pros:The parcel came well packedged, the gimbal in a hard paper box with foam. So it arrived in germany without any damage. Great. It works well.
Cons:Since there is no manual, you have to search the net, but there is a lot of information available.
A little bit heavy
Other Thoughts:It needed about three weeks for shipping. Strange: the status of my order was always "processed", but not "shipped". I wrote a mail, no answer, but the parcel arrived two day later.
People, who have problems with shaking or strange movements may forget, that the camera has to be balanced in the gimbal well
Bottomline:Create a manual !!

Pros:This gimbal looks strong, would possibly survive a crash, Plugged it in and it worked on 1st try...super easy balancing a hero 2 on it. It is really plug and play.
Cons:As everyone else here pointed out, no instructions or support...but this is something im getting used to in the RC field.
There are some slight jitters on the roll axis, doesnt seem like it reacts quite fast enough sometimes, but that prbly lies with fine tuning the software; which I have yet to figure out what the correct one is for me..as i received a different control board than what was pictured
Other Thoughts:I mounted this in the front of my H-QUAD frame, it looks awesome, where the roll axis motor connects to the mount, i turned it around so the gimbal was forward and didnt hang under the mounting apparatus
Bottomline:BUYYY IT.

Pros:This looks to be built nice with lots of quality parts but in instructions on how to wire it or plug it in might have a few burning it out. Newer ones have duel plugs for PITCH and ROLL
Cons:No support, no firmware to flash or control it if needed,came with no instructions no wires nothing to tell you how to install. Only found out by looking on Youtube. None of them hold the camera balanced and there a little heavy 200grams around without camera.Mine came DOA wont do anything but RED light glow.
Other Thoughts:If it works you got a good one
Bottomline:I think this would be a amazing gimbal for the price and would be ale to sell many more even higher price if they gave some type of support ,info,firmware,wiring and tech help.When or if I get my new Gimbal or parts to fix the one sent not working I will try and document a small video and how to install and wires for the few of us that are not that good at things like this.

Pros:Semi constructed, parts seem like good quality... at least in appearance
Cons:As others mentioned NO INSTRUCTIONS. (Most of us have had to surf internet for info) Wiring is inconsistent - pics show completely different wiring than what's shipped. Shutters occasionally and doesn't consistently level itself. Worst of all - ZERO customer assistance.
Other Thoughts:I tried it for the price but with lack of customer service when I had questions and issues - I trashed the unit and bought a US built unit with FRIENDLY customer service that I can speak with directly.
Bottomline:Price is a good lure but be prepared if there's issues.

Pros:Good
Cons:This is my first Bk in comparison with the suspension and the suspension on Servakh it's just heaven and earth. Excellent work out copter fluctuations in the wind, no jitters serv, the only drawback is the weight - 170 grams. But whether it is carbon fiber and would cost more. Dampers also wonderful working out the vibration copter.
Other Thoughts:Originally horizon kept slightly offset to the left, about five degrees. Reflash did not become lazy, just stuck a camera a little thick tape left hand side, the camera is leveled and all was fine.
Bottomline:minimal price )))
  Great Gimbal for the price

Pros:It comes completely assembled. It works GREAT out of the box.
HOW CAN YOU BEAT THIS FOR $99?
I got mine in THREE DAYS TO FLORIDA, USA! (DHL)
WELL PACKAGED
Cons:NONE
Other Thoughts:I mounted mine on a 3DR quad and used a Mobius Action Camera. It works great. Powered it off the balance plug on my primary (only) battery. Took about one try to "balance" (move sideways) the camera. I will post video later.
Bottomline:One of the best buys I have made in RC products. Simple, good build quality, easy to use - don't over think it, just plug it in and go.

Pros:It's a nice gimbal out of the box with some wires.
Cons:No users manual which is really frustrating. I am sure someone new to gimbal will scratch their head to figure out how to run the wire.
Other Thoughts:I am a new user and has no knowledge about wiring or any electronic related. When I opened the box I was shock and asking myself "what are those wire for? and which wire goes where?" It's like a baby just born and the mom ask the baby "do you want an orange juice?"

I wish GOODLUCKSELL or GOODLUCKBUY can do a video tutorial on how to installation . It will make things much easier for a novice users to get the gimbal install and running.
Bottomline:I REALLY how that GOODLUCKBUY/GOODLUCKSELL can come out with a user manual for the installation or even better a video.

Pros:Came pre-built, with firmware loaded and WORKING correctly,fits the DJI phantom PERFECTLY and most importantly, ut does what it says.
Cons:none as of yet... well, actually I would like to have the gopro I am using inside it's waterproof case. Uising the default position it is naked. This video shows one possible solution to this problem with this (and pretty much all) gimbal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HscEssUxUJ4&feature=c4-overview&list=UUf2jzGgXafGMgUflZbjkCFQ

Other Thoughts:kudos to the engineers for designing an efficient solution.
Bottomline:I bought the RCtimer gimbal for $160 and had to struggle with it to put it together, load firmware I wasnt familiar with and struggle with mutiple things (btw, that gimbal has yet to be used in the field). This thing just comes ready to go. All I can say, is nice work Goodluckbuy and even more kudos to the engineers for designing an efficient solution.

Pros:already assembled
Cons:weight
camera needs to be balanced on the mounting platform..I'm using a 3S...maybe a 4S would have more power?
Other Thoughts:Sturdy
Bottomline:Good product for the price. Comes shipped in a sturdy box so damage should be minimal. A little heavy (215g-w/o/ camera) on my DJI Phantom.
  Delivered broken in box and wont replace it, they want to send parts for me to fix it.

Pros:For the price and the video reviews that I have seen of this are amazing.
Cons:They will throw it in a box with no padding send it to you. You will get it broken like I did, then they want to send you parts so that you can fix it yourself by trying to solder small components. They are refusing to send me a new $100 gimbal... Why, I don't know.

I was a first time customer and they wont even help me out by replacing it. I don't get it.
Other Thoughts:It's just so disappointing that I waited the time for it to ship with the EXTRA $25 shipping via UPS only to get it broken, then to be told I have to fix it. I just don't understand!!!
Bottomline:Just beware there is no padding and may arrive broken. If it does you are expected to fix it.
