Goodluckbuy cheap gimbals

Well, it seems like Goodluckbuy has a whole bunch of very cheap gimbals right now. Question is, are they any good?

Here's one, not sure how the back motor is mounted on it though. http://www.goodluckbuy.com/fpv-two-a...tography-.html

Here's another with motors included, I wish they had a shot of the other side so I can see if the other side of the camera plate is supported by bearings or not.

I'll buy one of them either today or tomorrow.

I'm thinking of this one: http://www.goodluckbuy.com/gopro-3-b...a-ptz-kit.html

Roughly the same price, not sure how rigid the gimbal is. But at this price I can afford to experiment a bit.

Actually, I just thought of something...

One of these is available in kit form, the other only comes complete with motors. So I'll simply buy both for 150 USD total and simply move the motors and controller between the two so I can test both and see which one is better.

EDIT: And done!

96382 FPV Brushless Camera Gimbal with 2 Gimbal Brushless Motor Two Axis Carbon Fiber Camera PTZ Kit for Aerial Photography 1 $96.72 908 $96.72
96533 FPV Two Axis Carbon Fiber Brushless Camera Gimbal PTZ Kit for Gopro 3 Aerial Photography 1 $52.46 492 $52.46

I'm not too keen on that one though. Mostly because you can not adjust the balance of both axis. I'm alright with waiting for these, I'm not going to film stuff until June or so.

It seems to me like lots of companies are selling the brushless gimbals but no buyers have yet started posting decent videos. All the companies have demo videos but Im not yet seeing much in the way of user vdeos

Well, it's a brand new type of gimbal, I think the YUN-I gimbals got to customers less than 2 weeks ago and even that little beta test has been plagued with problems and bad customer service. 150 usd isn't a lot of money and these look very similar to other far more expensive gimbals with the same iPower motors. So we'll see how it goes.

I ordered the same one from goodluckbuy on the 23rd. It says order 'processed' but that's it.

I hope I don't need to much 'good luck' to buy from goodluckbuy -

I just hope I dont have to wait two million years for these. I.e. I hope theyre in stock or in stock soon. I really dont like the lack of stock levels on the website.

goodluckbuy puts a 'out of stock' banner in the product image.

Check this: http://www.goodluckbuy.com/hobbies-a...nt-page-2.html

So this product should now be on stock.........

Glb is a taobao reseller without any local stock.
You buy, they order from taobao, collect all orders then ship them to you.
