Zenmuse owners, is gimbal worth buying? What are your thoughts about your previous gimbals? (If you had some)

I tried a lot of gimbals until now, but me summary would be:

"the journey has an end" (in searching for an optimal gimbal)

best regards

I have had so many gimbals since 2005, I have balanced so many helis and blades and tried vibration dampeners, messed with post processing software etc.

Bottom line, strap on a Zenmuse and be done with it. I haven't even bothered to balance a blade or even mess with the autopilot gains with the zenmuse. What for? Just fly it however you want and the raw video is flawless.

If your serious about making money doing Aerial Video then the Zenmuse is the way to go or if you want hassle free perfect video. Yes, it can be pricey, but for the professional that is cheap. For the semi-professional, when its all said and done trying to save a buck you have to look at the quality and amount of time trying to get great results with other options.

For the Hobbyist, yes expensive unless you have deep pockets.

Let me know when you are in Michigan will try to meet up and you can play with the Z15. Or head on over and we can hang at the lake also.

Might head up that way in August. I've got a couple Z15N headed here soon. Anxious to get them airborne. Both on S800 and a Gaui X7.

Do you see any servos? It looks like a smaller hexa with CF rod arms mounted on the S800 LG.

Ya, looks too small for the S800 but I see the 45deg turn latches to connect the gear to the frame.

Maybe it's a new less expensive S800 mini, that would be really cool.
