    Hi I'm think of adding a gimbal to my fc40, but I haven't because I'm afraid of which one to buy and how to install it. It would be for a GoPro camera. Help please!

    I purchased the Walkera G-2D , comes with good instructions and works well with my FC40 + GoPro Hero 3. I also as shown in another post just purchased the latest Dji Controller with Lipo batt and Gimbal wheel. This works a treat with no setup right out of the box despite Dji & Dealer saying it will not (see my post)

    Here's what I bought:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GAY ... UTF8&psc=1

    Pretty durable and weighs in at about 200 grams.
    Hookup is fairly easy and you can control the pitch after connecting the proper wires and making a mod (adding a pitch control lever) to your controller.

    There is a link here which may be helpful for installation.

    Hey Fuji-Flyer, can you include a link to the post you are referring to? Thanks
