    Hey all. I've been researching gimbals and am grateful for all those posts on people's experiences with the Zenmuse, Tarot and Arris. Just curious if anyone has tried the GadgetSalon gimbal? I can't seem to find any reviews for it. One thing that scares me is the exposed controller board on the side of the mount. Seems a bit too exposed for my liking. Anyone have experience with this guy?

    What made you guys decide on the Gadget Salon over, say Tarot?

    Okay, Zenmuse is way pricey and is having issues . . . though the clean install with back plug-in is appealing and I'd probably throw the money at it if I could be convinced it'd be reliable.

    On the other handTarot, from what I've seen, has a reasonable price, good reviews, few complaints.

    Just curious and looking before I leap into the fray . . .

    I haven't decided yet, just trying to get a sense of how good some of these other gimbals are. Main thing for me is I'm trying to get one delivered to me in California by next week at the latest. The GadgetSalon ships from a US distributor whereas the Tarot and others seem to only be available from China (3 weeks delivery!). Are there any other US distributors that might have any of these in stock (other than the Zenmuse)?
