    I'm a newby here so I definitely appreciate any guidance you guys can give me! Thanks in advance.

    I'm looking for a low-cost gimbal that will easily hook up to the F2 port and work with the phantom 1.1.1 version. Anything with a YouTube video would help. I already have my power port connected and extended.

    The easier the better! Is there a specific place to buy where seller provides instructions that are actually readable and ports to hook it up??

    Price limit is $150

    Thanks again.

    I have a goodluckbuy gimbal $80 and works great!, it is plug and play all I did was git it power and plug to the NAZA f2 and was ready to fly and tilt up and down.

    Obviously a high end gimbal is better but for the price you can't go wrong.

    Thanks, guys. I will go with that gimbal. Appreciate it!

    I know that I have to turn on the gimbal in the Naza settings, but do I have to update controller firmware or anything like that?

    Thanks!

    Bought one of these myself. Can't say enough good things about it.

    Has anyone already tried this Goodluckbuy carbon fibre three axis gimbal?

    At $96,72 it seems a rather good deal.

    The AlexMos controller + 3rd axis extension board + IMU are not included, so add another $100 to the price tag.

    Woops... I picked the wrong tab I had opened. I meant this one.

    $136,07 (€98) is still a good deal. Would this kit require anything more?

    That installation video doesn't look very plug and play to me. Soldering != plug and play
