Bought the Zenmuse gimbal for the GoPro 10 days ago. The unit looks like something destined for a small NASA interplanetary probe, seemingly well-built materially, solid servos and coming in cool stealthy black-box packaging. But the months-long-awaited GoPro camera mount quickly became a headache, and teeters on becoming a nightmare.

The short tutorial video from the manufacturer took many hours to follow for this newbie. Soldering on the expensive motherboard was the most nerve-racking. This was nearly equalled when it was powered up for the first time but the gimbal remained limp and unresponsive. A required firmware update (mentioned in the instructions) to the latest version (as of this writing version 3.14) finally brought the whole system to life - and it successfully calibrated while connected with the stubby USB connector to the craft. But from the first power up, there were signs that something wasn't quite right. The rear servo on the gimbal buzzed like an electric razor and heated up very quickly. Not knowing what was "normal" for this unit, I kept an eye on it, but wasn't alarmed.

The gimbal took it's maiden flight and worked flawlessly delivering glass-smooth video in 2.7K @ 30 fps - the jello had been cured - facing direct sunlight (when the rolling shutter is most prone to jello - clean.) Even extreme side-to-side or front-to-back maneuvers didn't shake the gimbal's rock-solid view, but the props did come into the 2.7K frame at the extremes.

The combination of balanced carbon-fiber props and the gimbal delivered cinematic drama that made the very ordinary park where the testing the unit - look bigger than life. Ah. THIS is what I've been waiting for. Ah. Memories.

What I had not been waiting for was flight two.

I purchased the Zenmuse gimbal rather ignorant of the installation process. Yes, I had viewed the few YouTube vids showing "how to" but it is always more difficult when it is your craft and hard earned money. But after a few hours and carefully following instructions online, downloading software to calibrate (which meant finding a PC for this Mac guy!) I had it installed. I did NOT even have time for a test flight before I was to leave the next day for Kenya and Ethiopia to use it! But I could confirm that it worked while I held it and it did not make the noise I had read others complaining about. Speed ahead to Africa and first flight...AWESOME! Footage was so stable. Absolutely a night and day difference. The Phantom without a gimbal is worthless for professional results...period. It is just to shaky and full of vibrations and jello-effect. But the Zenmuse is so stable. Take it up to about 500' and hover and it is like you set a tripod in the sky. No joke.

Then...the second flight. Perfect. No problems. In fact, flight after flight the unit ran great. Then I got careless and ignored the battery warning lights telling me that my li-pos were empty...down she came and hard. The Phantom crashed on cobble stone and broke blades, the Zenmuse's rubber connection bladders broke away from the quad and the ribbon cable got ripped out!!! It seemed horrible. I put an extra set of blades on it, remounted the rubber shoes, plugged the ribbon cable back in (which fortunately wasn't ripped apart) and she flew again...perfect! Subsequently on this trip I had 2 more huge crashes on concrete and the same happened each popped off, cable ripped out, blade cracked. But with new blades and re-mounting the GoPro - it all worked perfect.

I installed this gimbal on a Phantom v. 1.1.1 using the mainboard upgrade option and although it was a little stressful for this technologist who hadn't soldered in a long time; it went flawlessly. Make sure you have a hot (30w+) iron because both installation options for the Phantom 1.1.1 require soldering (the mainboard upgrade option requires 8 soldering points be de- and re-soldered)! The NAZA assistant software detected the new hardware and firmware updates were brought to current. Calibrating the tilt control on the transmitter was a breeze. After installation and firmware updates, you might want to recalibrate everything (IMU, compass, transmitter, etc.).

This device is factory calibrated for the GoPro Hero 3's, which is what DJI means by "plug-and-play". I can see where some find this term misleading but if one does one's proper research before purchasing the gimbal, one will find that the installation is not "plus and play' but its use after a successful installation, is. If you aren't comfortable opening your computer and performing upgrades, additions or troubleshooting, this installation is probably not for you. Have it done by a professional. Try not to touch it when it's powered-up and don't change the weight of your GoPro Hero 3 (by adding anything to it).

The improved video quality that this gimbal affords is worth every bit of the original retail price and at half that price, it's a fargain bargain! Combine the gimbal-stabilized video with the Warp Stabilizer effect in Adobe Premier (if needed) and you'll likely end up with some fantastic cinematic quality video. The gimbal maintains camera position astonishingly well (like magic) and being able to remotely tilt the camera is worth the cost alone.
