What is the best stabilization system for the CineStar Gimbal?

I am looking for the best system to use on my CineStar gimbal, any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks

a simple search shows that most are using the mk built in stab, or the hoverfly right now...

Looks like the only one that MAY is the HoverFly Gimbal controller. Seems everything else has some kinda issues. Tarro I thought you did not like stabilized gimbals. You have one of the better gimbals it to sad that the limiting factor is the controller. So far Iam still using the ones a friend of mine helped me with and so far so good. In the process of making changes to my gimbal and testing some new settings time will tell.

nope. That's why I didn't answer your question, just pointed you in the right direction.

The guys at FreeFly are on the cusp of releasing their own gimbal stabilization system. I would highly reccomend waiting for it if you can.

Yea, I think I will.
I needed a gimbal that had a better tilt so I got the CineStar gimbal and I want to give a stabilized mount a go.

$1k for a gimbal, $1k for a flight controller, $1k for a gimbal controller..... guh! what about a frame, camera, lipos, Tx......

the HFpro is a compelling flight controller (without GPS) since it has some of the best gimbal controls I have ever used on a flight controller...... make it a whole lot cheaper to get great results...

problem is..... the HFpro you actually have to fly..... it will not fly itself like the Naza or WKM

one of our customers is using an MK flight controller dedicated for gimbal control. Seems to work pretty well.

I use the MK outputs to control my CS gimble. Some use a separate MK FC, and a separate gimble pilot.
