Good and inexpensive camera gimbal

I apologize if this question has already been asked.

We currently have a quadcopter that can lift a pretty good payload, we are currently looking into a hexacopter. We have so far taken footage from a contour+(like a gopro) but it has been mounted in a fixed position. We would like to fly our contour and perhaps a small point and shoot. So far we have not been able to find a good but inexpensive camera mount. We have a hobbyking pan-tilt mount, but is is very unsteady. We do not get very much tilt range. The pan mechanism makes the whole mount very wobbly and unsteady almost to a point that it is useless.

Can anyone recommend a good but inexpensive camera gimbal (2 or 3 axis)? (preferably under $80 max $120 including servos)

What axises have people found most useful (pan, tilt, roll)?

The mount does not have to be super professional (I have seen those that cost over $1000)

Any help would be appreciated

  • What about this, looks really good for the price

  • hi, i recently bought this gimbal,

    and it costs with the servos around 45 pounds and supports up to 1kg payload! It has Tilt and Roll control, as PAN would be useless since the landing gear would be in the way. Better use yaw of the multirotor instead. It is made from fiberglass and it has plates for two size of servos (40mmx20mm, and 32mmx16mm).It also has a place for a 9g servo for shutter release. The only thing is that i got it from UK, and since you are looking for a price in dollars, i suspect that you are not from around...

    anyway, the site i bought it is :
