It's a pretty tough one to answer but I think you should take a look at the Tarot T-2D V2. It is a brushless gimbal and can be had for about $100. It is highly recommended and there are plenty of instructional videos about mounting it on various frames including the F450.

Re: What is the best gymbal for the money?

I've been building multis for years now and I have to say I've tried most all of them pretty much lol
All I can say now is that buying a refined gimbal like a DJI Zenmuse may hurt the wallet a little more than most but the upside is mainly the lack of trailing cables. I have had great results with both cheap and expensive gimbals but the thing which ALWAYS lets them down are having to have servo cables hanging down onto them to control pitch, to extract video off the gopro, power... UGH

I would say pick a gimbal which has all it's connections on the mount and also which doesn't have its control board mounted on the gimbal (as opposed to remotely, like on the unsprung part of the mount).
