Looks really good! Similiar to what I saw from the PhotoHigher RSGS.

Was that a hex or octo setup?

Reading quick start manual, it says to NOT mount hfpgimbal to camera tray. I thought that was the original concept so that any variations in servo or belts, gears etc would be automatically adjusted out.

With that said, the video looks awesome!

Al, george, did I misunderstand the mounting details?

Dennis - This may be an error in the Quick Start Guide. I will follow up with Al as soon as I can.
