    i have a phantom 1 and in need of a good gimbal not expensive as the Zenmuse but decent. I have bought a gimbal from eBay that gave me nothing but problems the **** thing always went crazy once it was tilted. I return that one and step into another gimbal the 2D Tarrot. That item gave me issue as the wire that was provided was not long enough from the Naza to the Gimbal itself. Plus i was unable to install it under my phantom as it was with some hooks on the side that said it could be use for skid plates which I don't have. Can anyone direct me to a good gimbal on eBay or online that's not too crazy on the price that is an easy plug and play. I'm dieting to get my phantom going but want to install it with a gimbal.

    Thank you

    I used their G-2D gimbal for quite some time and had great success with it. Installation is easy with it being plug and play. Just need to attach a JST connector to the AUX power lead from your phantom and make your own tilt cable from the two that walkera supply (one is not long enough so cut them down and join the two) The whole process should only require 3 solder joints.

    Depending on where you are I have a second hand gimbal which I could send out to you if you live in the UK, could even solder the pitch control cable for you if you wish. PM me if you're interested. Recently upgraded to the H3-3D!
