So now i wait for a small gale, then i will attempt to fly a MK Cinetsar 6 in 30+ knots, fully loaded with my beloved DSLR :-)

Looking forward to seeing that. Perhaps you could also post a step by step guide of your own tuning methods explaining how you setup for different wind conditions (I recall your post some time back showing your settings for different wind conditions)

The attention is already pretty much drawn to multis don't you think, and I took no part in it.
Just check the number of careless/stupid/criminal flying exposed on Youtube, you'll understand what the FAAs around the world are worried about.
Then, don't you think it's important to know the FFA position regarding commercial use of multis in your country?

FYI, with a buddy of mine we started the french federation for commercial AVP here in France.
Because the situation is not much different from yours in the US we had to become representative in order to be able to stand up for our pro activity.
I believe you guys should do the same in the US if you don't want to see multis or civilian UAS in general (UAS = Unwanted Aerial Systems for authorities all around the globe) strictly forbidden after the first dramatic event.

This being said...

Guys, I need Your advice about servos.

I'm going to make gimbal for GoPro. It has Sunex lens, so gimbal should not shake.
It will built with with gears in 5/1 -3/1 ratio.
So I need small, fast, smooth but not expensive servos.

Have ever somebody tried these Mi Digital servos?

Or maybe You have any other recommends about cheap servos? (not more than 25$ per one, better about 15$)

Love your vids!

If you don't mind me asking, what frame and camera mount do you use on your okto2?

Thanks
