Well.. If you look at this from a price standpoint, it only has to have 1/3 the performance of a Z-15 to be equal.
And realistically I think we can expect performance very close to the Z-15 from a well tuned system. Simply because a mechanical weight based system with infinite pitch/tilt resolution is much more elegant in it's simplicity. And when used together with electronics to compensate for those cases where a weight based systems alone would fail (because of centripetal forces in certain high speed maneuvers), you should get very good results.
Personally I'll jump the ship when/if they release a hexa or octa version. I'm not comfortable with using a quad to lift expensive camera equipment.

About centripetal forces high speed manouveurs. I would love to see someone doing that and the camera gimbal behaves as it should.

for instance, no FC can treat the data good enough to deal with this. Show me a footage where this copy cand do it (not windy or fast left to right angle change) but real centripetal forces acting.

I had several other FC and any of these works, just to film while hover or slow translations.

It is a very difficult problem. But it is not NP-hard. Given good enough sensors and detailed enough information about speed and turn radios from the GPS, centripetal forces can be accounted for in the AHRS solution. Professional units does this already, but in this case professional means $$$$$ systems used in real drones. With real ring-laser gyros, there is so little drift that you hardly need any other sensors at all to keep a gimbal level. And hopefully our budget range of equipment will get there shortly.

Can you give us information about the batteries that Steadi470 uses?

Lipo ┐3S? ┐4S? ┐Capacity?

Thanks in advance.

I visit SZ very often, i think their price was spot on, it give the pro set a run for their money, imagine how much more expensive one has to pay for such stabilization when using Cinestar, Skyjib and their expensive gimbal with stabilization electronics like Radian, Picloc, etc...and their closest competitors,DJI with S800 and Z15 ???

This one does'nt have tilt axis, but the stabilisation is very good, i own the original Ecilop, a cinestar6 with their gimbal with Radian 2 axis...So i know what's good and cheap.

This is the best value for money can buy, and from what i knew, ZeroUav exists way before DJi was born. Just that DJI got better marketing team and spent alot on advertising and roadshow both in China and worldwide, Zerouav did not. ZeroUav product is way ahead of DJI, but their enclosure for the YS-X6 sucks !!!

I will be testing extensively on my new arrival of the YS-X6, and my WK-M is now up for sale, next on the line is my MK FC....

When you purchased this system, you have just put yourself into the professional aerial video arena, lookout for one that can carry a 5D2/3 in near future, i am sure cinestar and skyjib will consider to drop their price just to stay competitive.

Thanks China for making all products so cheap. Really looking forward to own a pro steadicam set for my 5D3.

It wont be supported by the FC but I think you still can mod it. You just need to use Y harness. That is the same mod of Gaui 330XS/ Gu-344 which was quite popular a few years ago.

The quality of the video leaves to be desired.
In some shots stabilization is not good.
Any 100$ gimbal can make those shots.

Any answer for this poor quality video?

You're right, with $ 100 can┤t find a gimbal for the weight of the camera.

It is very strange that they have not appeared more videos.
