Looks very good! Do you have a rough price for the gimbal yet?

Best not to talk about a rough price. The price is best.

James, I hope that didn't come across as rude. I just meant a rough price is often lower than actual and better to wait until all costs are known before quoting a price.

As an option, the gimbal has a joystick for the gimbal that also provides a full control of the micro cameras.



Really cool Kim - does that mean you got SBus working? :)

That sbus controller looks very good, I'd be pretty interested in that. Is it working wirelessly?

Very interested in one, if it's a reasonable price - I don't need the highest quality materials!

Will probably get one anyway unless its outrageously expensive.

Been reading your stuff for months now. Your work is coming along nicely.

I've got a couple of questions.

In the case of the gimbal what kind of weight can it handle? I'm using Veydra's with the Micro. They come in just under .55 Kgrams stripped. So with a IR/UV Cut and likely a VND of some sort and maybe a hood are they to heavy and weight forward for this gimbal?

I also really like what I'm seeing of the setup with the controller on an extension with the gimbal at the end. Is it possible to see a bit more on the actual controls of the controller?

And the $64 question. Are you planning to make this available to the marketplace and what will it cost? Any thoughts on timing?

Time for a remake of The Shining? Scary first person perspective.

That is very nice Kim, how much are we looking at for the setup shown in the test video, and just for the gimbal and remote? Thanks

Kim, 'sick' is now meant as a compliment, not a criticism.

I wonder where you can find a professional? The term seems vaguely familiar. Oh look, there's one over there, and one at the corner, and another! I like your video work Kim, but I think someone may be knocking on your door soon following your suggestion.
