What's New for this Labor Day 2014: Received some updated news today from ucdrone Inc (Walkera's North American HQ) about this gimbal. Here is a preview of the latest gimbal; designed by demand, to support the renown Sony RX100 II and Mark III, high end cinema codec camera. The gimbal will be out by late September 2014. More updates at walkerawarehouse.com

Specially designed to be flown with the QR X800. Remotely control tilt, pitch video recording and combined with with a TX5803 will allow you FPV.

We were told it may support all 3 versions of Sony's RX100, but the first version is still being calibrated. So, contact Walkera first if you have the older RX100.

I'm sure it's three. It sure looks like three. It'd better be three. If it's not three, I'm not buying. If it is three, sold! I don't think anyone would try to market a 2 axis gimbal designed for an $800 camera. I sure hope not, anyway.

So the question is, is it a fully panning 3 asix gimbal? For me is doesn't have to be. I just want yaw damping. Nothing worse than yaw wobble on an otherwise great quality video.

Yes. FPV, from the RX100... if that is what you mean.? However, like the GoPro, you cannot remotely turn on and off from the receiver.

We received news this morning, the G-3S RX100 will only support the QR X800, the H500 did not cut it, due to the weight, and will not be sold as a package, a decision made this morning.

from all i have read it's not a 3 axis . the gyro is 3 axis , but only 2 motors . Maybe the 3rd axis will be an upgrade!!!

I'm not sure that's the case. I'm only looking at translations, but it appears that the yaw axis is stabilized but not controllable, meaning it has a motor, but it only damps out yaw movements, rather than allowing the user to control the yaw angle. Also not ideal, since it's marketed for a copter with retracts, but better than nothing...

Yup... I heard from Bo that is correct. Great news!
