Pros:Problem: Nothing is going: no Motor moves, i tried different firmwares, GUI Versions, no really function. Some firmwares i can upload others not
Cons:What is the right Firmware and GUI ? I use a 3s LiPo. Put a 80gr. weight instead ccamera onto to test. I tried all, even i got a new board with MPU from goodluckbuy, but same no movement, just the LED is on not more
Other Thoughts:Also i can't get a right Connection by GUI to board. Maybe my Firmware is wrong, how can i do a reset ?
How can i use the Switch on board`????
Bottomline:On one middle-age Firmware Version (2.2) the Motors vibrate just a part of a second then after about 10sec the same not more, what can be wrong ??? two board with the same failure ? i also tried another lipo but is same result. please help

Pros:Cheep and works reliably
Cons:Not that accurate. Pitch is good, Roll is swimmy and cannot be adjusted to compensate. I have it as a spare now and will not use it in production unless I have no choice.
Other Thoughts:It would be perfect if the Roll were better.
Bottomline:Its good for hobby grade video or stills but if you are looking for solid stabilization don't bother as it is a waste of time.

Bottomline:If you're not afraid to research its use and buy a product with no instructions, this is fantastic value.

Pros:works well
the PDF user manual is ESSENTIAL for setup
Cons:took me a while to figure out how to set this up.
Didn't work right out of the box, had to hook it up to my computer to sort out all the settings.

-on OSX, must download usb drivers for serial
-using the GUI
Other Thoughts:I'm using a Veho Muvi K2 and it works a treat!

I'm mounting inverted, on top of my quad. I had to make sure X axis was inverted and Z axis is NOT inverted.
Bottomline:can't beat the price! This things a lot of fun!

Pros:Worked after regluing the imu to the gimbal which came off soon after opening the box
Cons:The imu came off the gimbal very soon after opening the box it had not been glued on properly.
The socket for the imu plug was not soldered to the pcb so that came off as the only thing hodling it was the fragile tracks.
Other Thoughts:Check to see that the imu is fastened to the gimbal and that the imu socket is soldered to the pcb my gimbal is now useless unless I get another pcb or pay someone to try to repair it.
Bottomline:Would be a great gimbal if it was made well.

Pros:Price is very reasonable, small size and very neat little unit.
Cons:No instructions re voltage or initialization
Other Thoughts:The motors hummed and vibrated and caused jello effect on my video until I reduced the voltage to a 2S LiPo equivalent. It would not operate smoothly on a 3 Cell LiPo.
Short flight before dark confirmed it to be operating OK.
Bottomline:Price is excellent and after a few troubling hours it now seems to be operating as it should.

Other Thoughts:I'm happy! :-)

adesso mi posso dedicare alle riprese video col mio multirotore e con la mia nuova gopro. non disdegno il fatto di usare questo gimbal senza multicottero, facendo una impugnatura che lo "converta" in una steadycam... vedremo!
Bottomline:for all!!!!!!!

consigliato a tutti! ottomo negozio on line!

Pros:Relatively easy to install on DJI FC40. Powered by balance connector - leads are long enough, but you need to Dremel a slot in the battery cover. Pitch cable IS provided - its possible to connect to the NAZA P2 pin without disassembling the Phantom by feeding it thru a slot at top of battery compartment. Roll stabilization was perfect out of the box. Pitch was OK, needs some adjustment.
Cons:1) A little heavy; 2) Pitch wire connects directly under the battery cover and prevents it opening fully - but this is minor; 3) Roll has a slight tilt (but is stable); 4) Pitch over-corrects a bit; 5) No documentation. I assume I will be able to fix 3 & 4 with software.
Other Thoughts:
Bottomline:Works very well, but not perfect - perhaps will be after I figure out how to make software adjustments. If you want stabilized video on your Phantom 1/FC40 with a GoPro 3, this is the device.

Pros:Good build quality, standard SimpleBGC setup GUI, worked out of the box.
Time-proven firmware by AlexMos.
Cons:A bit too wide mount - could not fit some 350 size quadcopters (like Cheerson CX-20)

Price went $10 down soon once I received mine. Not sure if Goodluckbuy offers price protection...
Other Thoughts:I bought this gimbal for 808 #16 camera.
Honestly, not the best idea. The camera is way to light for a gimbal this size. Of course, motor power could be adjusted from GUI and disbalance is fixable by attaching some weight next to camera.
Finally I decided just to get a bigger camera this gimbal was designed for.
Bottomline:Maybe the best brushless gimbal in this price range. Recommended.

Pros:Works out of the box. Tested with GoPro 2 and works perfect and smooth. Modified the gimbal slightly and mounted the Phantom Vision camera, and it is working with DJI app.
Cons:None that I have found so far.
Other Thoughts:A little bit soft rubber dampers, Vision camera is a little bit heavier than GoPro 2 and 3.
Bottomline:Well worth the money. Fast DHL delivery with tracking. Not a genuine board so it's not easy to change parameters.

Cons:Maybe packaging - Thin hard cardboard luckily made it OK to me - others have had issues.
Other Thoughts:Worked wonders with my Mobius Action Cam - others have complained the it jitters and jerks - unless you add even some small weight like the Mobius it will do that.
Bottomline:Cost effective solution to getting rid of Jello if you don't mind the device hanging under the frame.
Gives your Videos nice smoothness

Pros:I received this gimbal 3 business days after it shipped(yes I live in America). The gimbal is truly unbelievable for the price. Absolutely no jittering or noise when operating. I was in no way expecting it to work this well. It's a little heavy but the aluminum build is very solid and durable. The connections on both the bgc and accelerometer are also very solid and the package contains single pin wires for external control inputs. Over all I have to say I am extremely impressed. Thanks gbl!
Cons:Accelerometer is hot glued to camera mount. Would recommend double sided taping it.
Other Thoughts:Comes with plug for 3s battery. Very convenient
Bottomline:Fantastic product with great service for the price. I have to say that I was completely surprised by Goodluckbuy's customer service. There was a problem with the order and they responded very politely a half hour after I stated the issue in an email.

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.

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)

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 !!
  good gimbal

Pros:Nice stuff, compact and well made
Cons:Came without battery. No instructions. After about 20 hours of hand held use, has started stuttering horizontally!
Other Thoughts:Is there a firmware update? How to a format the programme? Any one solution website for general, non-expert users like me?
Bottomline:Most of its users will be general enthusiasts. The company must make and publish simple user manual, instructions or atleast have a responsive support mechanism!

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.
  Good for the money

Pros:I have had my gimbal for just over a month what a great buy! works every time. You will not find a better Gimbal at this price!
Cons:It is a little on the heavy side, but for less then $99.00 US what more can you ask for.
Other Thoughts:It would be nice to have manual or instructions in English.
Bottomline:It is less then $99.00 Bucks! what more can you ask for!? This is a good buy. take a look at how good this is.

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.
  Good price / quality rating!
