    what do you think about this gimbal?
    It´s 160grs, seems a goodluckybuy but less metal (price it´s about 50$)

    what´s your opinion? what do you recommend?

    Thanks

    I dont think there are many people who have installed this successfully on the Vision. Its a good price, but thats about it.

    Personally, I'd stay away from the cheap gimbals. See if you can save for one of the popular ones, ie, Rotorpixel, Ariel Freaks or Taco. They will cost more but they will be worth it.

    Im sure there's a thread on here that compares all the gimbals, ie cost, weight etc

    Hi cyclone, thanks for your comments... I think you´re correct. But it´s as cheap.... :D I ordered one to "see" if I can do some.

    I agree with that options, but to me they are absolutely crazy in price (it´s better buy vision+ directly)

    Thanks¡¡

    Re: Light gimbal (160grs) for Vision

    Hi friends... one question about gimbals...
    I see these chinese gimbals works with 7.4 or 11.1 batteries, and 150mah comsumption.

    is it good idea install an external battery to power it? (and avoid any problem to main battery)
    I found 2S 350mah with 27grs. It´s supposed to be enough to power (I don´t know real time)

    Regards
