Does anyone know when it might come out? I am going to buy a new stabilization system for my gimbal, and would really know if it is worth to wait a little bit for this.

Tabb, can you share some information. Please

Lasse

lol...
it is a CineStar component.... so im guessing it will be pricey (but good)

I just ordered the HoverFly Gimbal Controller.

it is good for the industry that we have so many options coming for gimbal stabilization....

i'm going to try to use the onboard gimbal control in my ys-x6, but I am on the list for the skyline controller over at aerialtechnology.com in Oregon.

perhaps that has been your experience...

with the HFpro board I have had nothing but good experiences, too be completely honest much better than what i am having with the WKM right now...

but that is just part of the deal, we all jump in with tech at different times and some of us have to deal with all the bugs in the beginning, whether is MK, DJI or HF.... and others of us come late into a product when it is more mature and has less bugs.

I would say right now the HFpro is a very mature solid product with a OSD, Gimbal Controls and very good manual flying....

FreeFly seems to be a very strong company and I have no doubt that when their gimbal board is released it will be very, very good... but it will be more expensive (hell if not, i will buy one )

Hi Guys, boards are being produced right now. We are working hard to bring this to market as soon as humanly possible. We put a LOT of time testing and refining these boards to make sure they work well, are reliable, and simple to setup.

Stabilization is a tricky problem to tackle. Luckily John Cunningham from CARVEC joined the FreeFly team a few months back and we were able to leverage his years of aerospace and software experience.

I have been flying prototype boards for the last few months and have been really happy with them. I am excited to get them out there and in peoples hands so you guys can enjoy a nice level horizon like I have been!


Best,

Tabb
