Re: Cheap gimbal!

Looks like the same generic Gimbal Goodluckbuy have been selling for a very long time. I have one myself and it does a great job. To be honest though, nearly all the gimbals nowadays are using only one of probably three control boards and they are all working fine, it's actually more a case of simply being unlucky to get a bad one. Alexmos software is good but a bit like the APM software, he's started making it more and more in-depth, almost to the point of being silly.

My GLB Gimbal cost me $75 shipped and it's worked fine since day one, I haven't even plugged it into the PC to tweak it. The most expensive one I got was over $350 and it was terrible, due solely to a bad board - Luck-of-the-draw.
