    Any advice on Gimbals?

    I've read several threads on Arris. Any lower price than $320 plus shipping?

    DJI's gimbal is too expensive for average pilot. Not that the $320 isn't a shot in the arm either, lol!

    Cheers from Houston!

    AeroXcraft seems to be getting good vibes.... similar price point to the Arris but tried and tested before leaving the factory (so it says). Built in England but ship to the states I think. Can't say I own one yet but it's first on my list for Gimbals. Hoping to get one late October at which point I will design an FPV tray for it.

    Aeroxcraft doesn't require messing with NAZA if you don't install the point down control. Even then its fairly straight forward. Price is ok, but then again its not from China. not that in China they don't make good stuff (cough...Phantom...cough) but UK gimbals are pretty much hand built by aero nerds.

    I have an Arris V2 and a Tarot, and gotta say that while the Arris was my first, I really like the Tarot, it really has the best bang for the buck, I've still yet to spot a single negative post about one failing or anything.

    I'm going to stick a vote in for the Goodluckbuy gimbal.

    It's £80 and worked straight out of the box. No messing about.
    I liked it so much I bought another of their gimbals for my F550.

    Thanks for the inputs!

    I prefer the plug and play versions with no opening up of the Phantom and soldering and plugging into PC to adjust any controls, etc.

    Have a Great Labor Day weekend flying!

    How do you plug in the FPV lead to the GoPro 3 when using this one?
