However, the gimbal just didn't work. It buzzed and vibrated for a few seconds and then went dead. I tried with different power cells with no change. I spent more than a little time finding a firmware update that was in Chinese but I'm fairly technical so I got through it. No help. It was defective.
While inconvenient, I realize that defects happen and so I reached out to the seller for perhaps some troubleshooting advice and worst case, for a replacement part or two. Rather than advice or a refund I was immediately challenged that the item could not be defective. They literally said "Each of our products has been checked before sending to our customers... I really don't know how it can be broken". I assumed the seller was just a bit embarrassed that they shipped a defective part or that it was something lost in translation. I asked for help getting the gimbal to work. The seller's response was to ask "If u think there is really something wrong with it ,pls give me some pictures in detail". I felt like it was like taking pictures of a car that wont start and asking the mechanic to diagnose what was wrong but I did as I was asked and sent three pictures of a non-working gimbal.Read more ›
UPDATE - Disassembled the pitch motor and found that the insulation on the magnet windings was binding and causing resistance. After adjusting the location of the wire, gimbal works well and without any jitter.
* contained semi legible instructions
* smooth operation
* firmware updateable
* firmware configurable
Cons (minor nits, should not prevent you from buying):
* USB cable does not work out of the box with Windows 8.1, you have to find older drivers (i'm using Prolific 220.127.116.11 dated 9/24/2008)
* Flashing new firmware updates requires a painful sequence, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2WXguD2Ghs for directions
* If you want to pull video off or charge the gopro, you need to dismount the gopro as there is no room to get to the USB
* IMO the tilt control should be setup positional out of the box as opposed to speed
* product title is misleading a bit, this is not a PTZ gimbal but a pitch and tilt or 2 axis if you will, the title should really omit the PTZ reference

This is a trolly amazing Gimbal, but you need a phantom or phantom 2 mount and Servo extension cables to connect the Pitch Slider.Published on May 30, 2014 by R. Morales
