This time, DJI is late to the game :)

Better late then never, but "less then $1000" is going to be a hard sell for a GoPro gimbal that only works with a DJI autopilot. A competing system like the YUN-1 is half the price and works with any autopilot.

Well it is like their other gimbals it will be crazy expensive. :)  "under a grand" is not what I would call a good price point.  Can someone PLEASE make a gimbal like this that works with a standard point and shoot.. which really isn't that much wider..  GoPro is nice but not everyone is in love with a GoPro.. granted I have the black edition Hero3...b ut still.. I would like to fly my different specialized optical cameras.

I was assuming the $1000 was for the phantom with the gimbal.  Was it your impression that it was gimbal only?

well that would be interesting.. but not likely.  They have been working on a GoPro Zenmuse for a while.. and this looks pretty similar in design and motors.  The Phantom is already $700.. I doubt that he was talking the entire package being sub 1000.. if so.. sweet.

So when is Chris going to sell the all in 1 Arducopter brushless gimbal cam copter?

I wonder if they're going to go to production with the tilt motor on the wrong side?

At 5:13 someone mentions "S800 feel for less than $1800". So the Gimbal might indeed be $1000. Right now on RC timer you can order a Gimbal and Controller for $150 total. Now that would be a fantastic price point, if it works ;)
