    The design looks great. I like that the lens is centered and the gopro is in a shell.
    I'd possibly be concered about weight and durability. Also looks like it might not be easy to plug into FPV or the Phantom gimbal cable.
    I don't think you'd save much, considering the need to buy motors and stuff.
    It would be nice if DJI adopted this design for a future Zenmuse.

    I'd avoid that one for a beginner, you'd need to assemble it, including finding and purchasing motors and a suitable gimbal control board and getting them all tuned together. Those will also drive the cost up well above what you see there just for the 3D-printed shell.

    I also haven't found any info on this one being tested or proven on any platform.

    Oh thanks, didn't realize it was just a shell. Any gimbals that allow the case for the go pro on it?

    Not that will fit on a Phantom. There's others that will let you use the gopro's waterproof case, but none in this size class that I've seen.

    So pretty much SoL if it crashes, no way to protect the gopro. So what's a good beginner set up.

    Phantom 2
    Zenmuse 3
    Gopro?
