Some exciting news for Phantom pilots- New brushless gimbal and new copter coming in next 60 days.
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?
Near future Jack.
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 ;)
