    I purchased my taco gimabl a few months ago...and because I couldn't get it to work 100% that has caused me to not fly my phantom once since installing :cry:

    I'm going to tackle this (plug n play) device again today :x

    This is the main thread on the taco:
    viewtopic.php?f=7&t=10651

    But I'd rather not read through 600 posts, if possible.

    Is SlackerATX's 1st post on that thread the most up to date information on the taco gimbal? If not, is there another step by step for it?

    Just got my gimbal delivered the other day. Have to say I'm very impressed, 9 days from Hong Kong to Ireland on normal shipping for $2, and what made it even better was they marked it as a gift on the shipping order so I didn't have to pay import duty or taxes which would have been around €70. I'm waiting for my camera to come back from repairs so cant wait to install and calibrate it.

    Yeah that's it. Expedited delivery takes about 3 days to get to the US. And then watch the youtube video above. He does an awesome job explaining everything.

    Thanks - I'm based in Ireland so even the 9 days was impressive. While I have you...any nice vimeo examples using this kit?

    I don't have any yet. I believe there are a few good examples on this site though using the Taco.
    I'll have some posted this week (hopefully)

    Hey corncrake!
    Daniel Sanchez who made that excellent instructional video has some nice videos on youtube, just search for daniel sanchez phantom. Himself and his friend Richard who just posted above are gentlemen and were very helpful to me when I decided to purchase my gimbal.
