The most versatile hand-held/ detachable/ mountable Gimbal for GoPro with wired control and wireless upgrade option available soon. Takes generic 2 x 18350 batteries (3+ hours use) and 18650 batteries with extender (for 7+ hours use). The LanParte LA3D-2 Gimbal incorporated cutting-edge brush-less motors allowing you to shoot cinema grade smooth videos even with your daily use action cameras. If you are sick of jittery blurry videos, get yourself a LanParte LA3D-2 and expect everything in your life to go smoothly! The LA3D-2 can also be detached and mounted on many platforms (jib, tripod, chest mount, bike, car...etc) using the GoPro mount (can be removed, and there's another 1/4-20 mounting point) or 1/4-20 standard threaded hole at bottom of the grip, making it compatible with just about anything. Three popular operation modes: follow mode (camera follows the tilt and pan movements of your wrist, adjust roll with joystick), semi-follow mode (camera tilt is locked but can be adjusted joystick; camera follows pan), and fully locked mode (all axis locked; tilt and pan adjustments can be made with joystick). Inverted mode for low angle shooting: this allows you to have full tilt range when held upside down in Semi Follow & Fully Locked Mode (Does not matter in Follow Mode). Package Contents: 1 x Gimbal head, 1 x Gimbal handle, 1 x Detachable control cable, 1 x Battery extender, 1 x large counterweight, 2 x LIPO 18350 batteries, 1 x Charger,

1- I charged the batteries before the first use using everything that came in the box. Upon the charger showing that the batteries were ready to go I put them in the gimbal excited to try it out. All that happened was the battery indicator light was flashing fast and the gimbal would not turn on. Upon reading the user manual flashing fas means that the batteries are dead... So I put the batteries back on the charger and let them "recharge". After about 5 minutes they were "charged" so I put them back in and tried again. IT WORKED! for about 15 minutes then died. With the battery indicator light blinking fast again. I put the batteries on the charger and did a firmware update from lanparte. However after owning this for about a month still having battery issues. Sometimes they work and sometimes they do not.
2- The gimbal (when it works) works awesome. I wish that rather than having buttons to control the direction it had a thumb joystick. I think that it would give better control.
Great bag that it comes in is small and protective. Only minor detail is some parts fit perfectly into their oam positions and it is hard to get them out without turning the bag over. Minor complaint but i love this thing. Also love that the case can fit the gimbal with the GoPro still attached so I dont have to take it off and put it back on every time.
Word of warning soon as you cut it off the camera will fall and bang against the bottom of the gimble which I do not like at all. So, be ready to catch it
Excellent smoothness in shots regardless of what direction you move your arm or wrist
Three different levels of camera motion control
Included ability to put in larger batteries
Seems well built of quality materials
Does NOT stabilize the vertical bounce in your activities (but I was not expecting that, never the less, something one should know).
Is NOT water resistant or water proof as far as I know.
Does NOT support the water casing for gopro camera.
When mounted, the settings button on the right side of the camera (Hero 4 Silver) is not accessible.
When mounted, the battery compartment is not accessible.
Although the tilt and roll buttons work well, and you can control the speed of these movements, I would like to have a nice slow down of that movement when finger is lifted, which would provide much smoother footage when you choose to make an adjustment using these keys. As is, the stop of each of these movements is noticeably abrupt in the footage I took.
The following items are problems I have had in the initial use of my unit, and are not necessarily representative of all units delivered:
a. When I plug the camera into the unit to provide additional power to the camera, after a while (10 to 30 minutes of use), the pan, roll and tilt go berserk and start moving in directions all on their own without any movement from arm/wrist holding it. At this time, it also makes the buzz noises you here if a motor is being maxed out in some direction. When I unplug the power from the goPro, the gimbal works fine 99% of the time. It still sometimes makes adjustments that I need to correct with the tilt/roll keys, and then 2 or 3 minutes later corrects it's bad adjustments and I then need to adjust back the tilt/roll I had changed previously. It does not happen all the time, but did happen about a dozen times in my 20 or so hours of use over the past 3 weeks.
b. The extension for the larger batteries should be very slightly longer (like 1 or 2 mm). The reason I say this is, the two Edison Bright 18650 batteries I purchased to go with this unit could not be put in with the battery extension attached UNLESS I put the extender on part way, put the power cap on the bottom all the way, and then tighten down the extender to a firm tightness. If I put the extension on all the way first, I could not get the power cap to screw onto the bottom (threads not catching). Maybe it is this brand of batteries, but the 18650 form factor should be accommodated by this extension regardless of brand and slight size variations. My batteries now have the outer label "bunched up" at the ends from the extra pressure this tight enclosure exerted on them. This prevents me from sliding the battery up and out of the extension tube. I have to take cap off the bottom and slide it down because there is now a lip at the bottom of the batteries outer label which prevents it from sliding up.
c. The case that I received is not the cube shaped case I had seen in the videos. It is instead, a flatter rectangle shape (about 2"h x 12"w x 10"d). The problem I had with it though is the stitching on the zipper was coming loose from day 1 and it causes the zipper to bind at several points when opening and closing the zipper. Several times, I could only get it 3/4 closed because of a nasty snag point on this case. Other than that, I really like the case and I am hoping they will resolve this issue by providing a replacement case.
d. The battery charger that I received had the negative terminal connectors bent down at an angle such that they were not making proper contact with the bottoms (negative terminals) of the batteries. I did bend them back to a 90 degree position, but the way it was shipped, it was not and would not work without this adjustment. Also, the springs should be a little tighter as the 18350 batteries were not very firmly held in because of very minimal spring tension for those short batteries.
I will update this review with any details that emerge, including the handling of the support on issues listed here.
Edit Sep 28, 2016 - I wrote the company giving them the entire review I had posted here, pointing out to them the two problems that I expected them to address. The first was the gimbal going berserk when plugged into the camera and the second was the bad zipper on the case. Here is there response:
I am Simon, the sales consultant of Lanparte. Thank you for your so detailed letter.
For your questions:
1.It is a normal performance when gimbal charge to the camera directly. It just the batteries run out. You need change new full batteries. And if you use 18650 batteries, you must use the extension rod, for the gimbal working voltage is 7.4V.
2. As for the case zipper, it is batter you find somewhere to change the zipper. Because you get the replacement from us will cost more. Maybe you can also find the seller to help you solve the zipper problem. If you can accept to pay for the freight, we can also send you the replacement.
Here is my reply and the reason for downgrading the product to one star:
Your replies are not acceptable and you have brought much shame on your product and your company by choosing to not address these problems in an honorable manner.
1. When I took the batteries out of the gimbal that evening, after using them all day, they still had half charge in them. Therefore, saying that they had run out and I had to put new ones in is not accurate. These were nearly new (couple weeks old with only 5 recharge cycles and from a reputable brand) 18650 batteries with 3400 MAH each, and yes, I was using the extension otherwise it would not have worked because of the incorrect voltage, but thanks for stating the obvious.
2. This is a brand new product with defective case and you expect me to pay for it to be replaced? Not acceptable, whether it's shipping or anything else.
You have destroyed any future purchase goodwill you may have had from me, clients and anyone who reads my reviews.
If you would like to avoid such damages, and save face, make these things right.
