Rogier, do you have a S800 clone from them and have it compared it too a DJI one, or
how do you come to that statement?

I have seen the difference in quality of the arms.... and the frame in the pics on the RCTimer site don't look very well. I did nog have had the clone frame in my own hands, but based on the quality of the arms, I would never spent my money on it.

Doubting btw if this is the clone or just original Cinestar pics on the RCtimer site.... If authentic clone pics, it looks very original!

Do like a lot of items sold by rc-timer. Do like the ESC, the ones with SimonK. I also like the S800 clone arms, but only because they are very good after a re-wiring and after a Carbon wrap. Then they are much more rigid, even more rigid then the original DJI's, and also lighter then the un-modified DJI's.

These are the arms before modifications.

Back on-topic, the Cinestar mount. I hope they also going to make a 2 axis mount, and if the quality is half as good as the Cinestar original mount, they will have a winner .

I see some of you find a bargain this mount at $699... then what about this, for $221?

Can you give me some well argued hints, not guesses, why the later could be a lemon ?
Both are carbon, belt driven, axis on bearing... could be the price difference from servo quality only ?

90 * 90 mm space in the Gimbal. About 3 times less then a Cinestar.

Good point, not aware about dimensions.
Still good for video cameras, though, not good for SLR, which I avoid to airborne anyway, there are better choices around.
However, this opening limit the lens size only, the body can be recessed back, the nodal point of almost all lenses is in front of camera body anyway.

I always mount the CG of the cam exactly in the three axis. Therefore a Cinestar is very good, you can get all available cams perfect balanced.
