Simple questions:

2. Some people used the VU power supply, and others a separate BEC. Is there a problem with the VU that makes folk spend more for a BEC?
All I've tried so far does not work very well.
1. My two cents: no servo plays well with the NAZA Gimbal output. Best results at the moment are Hitech HS65BB, Nick-axis seems to be ok, but Roll-axis far from being good.
2. Have only used the VU power supply (NAZA F1/F2) for the servos yet - no problem with that.

If you have some time left, wait a little before buying a gimbal. There are several projects at the moment going on for constructing gimbals with brushless drives - quality will be comparabel to DJI's Zenmuse but for appr. 300 only.
