Gimbal not Gambit
After seeing the footage from our Greenleaf 30K I decided to look into ways to making that better and I settled on a Feiyu Tech G5 Gimbal. In just some quick playing around with it it works fairly well.
I’m going to have to 3D print some shells though to use 18650 batteries as the 22650 it comes with is just super hard to find and I have a bunch of 18650’s for flashlights of various purposes.
It’s heavier than I thought but the craftsmanship is pretty good.
I picked the G5 for a few reasons, looks, it’s just a cleaner look than the other one I was looking at, it has a ‘selfie’ button that makes it easy to do a 180 of the camera, and it was $50 less than the other one I looked at.
Also DC Rainmaker has several months of use with this model and he didn’t say anything bad about it so that’s a big plus.
And a big reason to get a gimbal, a powered one anyway, is I just like toys. All kinds of toys. I could have 3D printed a weight based gimbal that would have helped. But I needed a compact one that I can easily stow in my pack and this one fit the bill.
