    Ordered the taco-rc plug and play gimbal on March 31 with expedited delivery to Florida.
    Received in the mail USPS today! 3 days from hong kong...quite impressive if you ask me.

    I'm sick as hell right now, but I'm going to try to assemble it tonight and change the settings. My head is really foggy though.

    Will definitely post a video of my first flight. Build quality seems decent. Paid $280 total

    Did you get the new version? The one with the new shell?

    I just sent an email to tacotoys@gmail asking them to clarify a few questions relating to your post shown above. The Gimbel plug & play kit shown for the P2V for $259.00 does not include the New ★EGGSHELL MOUNT FOR $45.00 That is a different accessory item shown twice actually. I have communicated with another PP member who stated he ordered the Gimbel kit & the assessory Eggshell mount, and received the Gimbel kit followed by an ★Extra Yellow Velcro Band★ I'm sure it is a mixup, but since the website is totally confusing, I have asked Taco-Toys to consider making it clear as to what is the deal with all this...

    I will post after getting a response from them.

    Not sure if its worth paying $259 + $45 to get a decent shell. I ordered mine on Modnay and should get here sometime tomorrow, I'm keeping it stock for now.

    No it came with the velcro mount. Didn't want to spend an extra $45

    they now have a V3 of the mount.

    Looks like its less plastic and the IMU board mount directly above the camera.

    Less weight and no more issues with tilted horizon would be my guess as to what it improves.

    Did you pay $6.00 or $60.00 for the shipping?
    Thanks Silent!

    Ordered mine on the 12th, paid for expedited shipping. Says "shipped", as of the 13th. Emailed them twice for tracking number.

    No reply.

    I'm hoping they are really busy with no time to email.

    Correction.

    In the shipping notice email it tells you to go here:

    http://www.taco-rc.com/servlet/Service

    You enter your confirmation number and email. Then the tracking info pops up.

    The order confirmation number appears in the first email they sent out as well.
