    If you're planing on buying P2 just make sure to get one with the gimbal included in the package.

    Thanks for the reply jason,, i know that i save few bucks if i buy the gimbal with the drone. My problem,, my gopro is an older hero 2, and i want to buy the hero 5 (release around january 2016) can i buy the gimbal separately ????

    Yes you can get the gimbal later he was just trying to save you some money by buying the package deal that's all.

    The price for just the phantom 2 $469.00 with the gimbal it's $757.95 and for the gimbal only $299.00.
    These prices are from www.bhphotovideo.com.

    Fo course the GoPro 2 will not work with any of the zenmuse gimbals. I wouldn't hold my breath about DJI making a gimbal for a hero 5 and by the way you can buy hero 4 black's on ebay for $399.00 or less but those prices do not include all the equipment just the camera and battery in most cases.
