Halloa people

for a video-quad project, I was looking for a GOOD 3D gimbal. This time not so much a budget-driven choise.. I just wanted something that works well..
After quite a bit of research, I decided on getting the Feiyu Tech MiNi3D PRO..

Link to this gimbal: Feiyu Tech Mini3D PRO

This time, I have devided the presentation and actual tests into seperate videos, partly because I am waiting for a new camera, but this will allso give You a chance to provide some input into What I should be testing for you, about this Pro version..

First.. Here is my presentation of the Pro gimbal by Feiyu tech.. And a physical comparison to the normal version:

Howdy people

I just came across this new platform from DJI, and didn't see a proper topic about it yet..
Quite a pricy thing, but not really aimed at hobbyists offcourse
It looks to be an unmanned (duh) crop-duster of sorts?





Link with some info: DJI MG-1

It's a 780mm size platform..
