    Thinking of ditching my glb gimbal and going with a tarot.

    This seems to be the best price.

    Any reason not to get this? It's the whole thing with the gyro etc right?

    Just wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything.

    Thanks!

    I've finally installed one of my own, the fist one I received (for about $200) had components falling off the PCB board . . . After getting that replaced I found the adaptor plate I had wasn't right, again e-mail the seller etc, got a revised version and now I have it all mounted tuned and almost ready to fly (I just gotta screw the shell back together, I done a lot of other work while it was open).

    Hand held testing has me excited :) the cam looks as steady as a rock, and I have the pitch control working too :)

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have the glb gimbal now and am having problems with it staying balanced.

    Mid-flight it decides to tilt the camera and then balance from there. Always tilted.

    With the glb I'm afraid "you get what you pay for".

    That's about as good a price ace you'll find for them!
