My first AP shots with Sony nex-5n and Askman's Gimbal

So i build a new Multitrotor and it is DONE! Well now i need to tweak it and tune it but it is close.

My 1st of 2 camera ships:

RC-Carbon Y-6 XL
HoverFly Pro Flight Controller
SunnySky 2814 Motors
HobbyWing 30a ESC
Askman's new Nex-5n Gimbal (Hyperion HV servos @ 7.4v)
Sony Nex-5n and GoPro 1 and 2 cameras
Spektrum AR8000+TM1000
CC BEC for Gimbal @ 7.4v
SkyLipo 4s5000mah 30c batteries
DX8 Tx
No FPV gear on it yet

Field Test Askman gimbal new Y 6 XL (1 min 18 sec)

I took it out to my local flying field to do a test run. Video and Stills. Here are the picture and I will get the video up in the next day or two. Editing 1080p video take a while (I am not any good at it )

let me know what you think

Looks good. You have some dust on you sensor though.

Yeah the 16mm lens is a dust magnet.
