    I know this has probably been discussed a bunch, and I have gone through the forums and am totally confused lol -

    I would like a set up to mount on my FC40, a gimbal and GoPro -

    Just a simple gimbal, I know the chinese one seems to be popular, what are you guys using, is there a lot of wiring etc?

    Thanks in advance, George

    I have a Walkera $99.00 2 axis gimbal via Amazon affiliate (2 day free delivery).
    Easy to set up, works great with GoPro 3+.
    No computer needed for setup.
    Also worked well with FC40 cam after much balancing.

    The ebay Chinese gimbal is simple to install and wire. 60$ to have a gimbal, a jst connector for battery connection and a single wire to get pitch control. You will need the pitch lever to install on your transmitter and a set of taller landing gear. It's nice to have as an option but the flight time is cut in half due to the extra weight. Fun to play with but I wouldn't spend 250$ on one.
