Low Cost, 3-Axis Gimbal--- Opinions/Experience Needed

I purchased the HAKRC Storm32 Controller/Gimbal from Gearbest (below).  Unfortunately one of the motors was defective so Gearbest (after several emails) has agreed to issue a full refund, in store credit.  

So I'm faced with a decision.  Should I order another HAKRC Storm32, or go for one of the Tarot (or Walkera) models below?  I should note that I'm flying a 3DR Iris+.

Does anyone have any experience with these three?  I found the documentation to connect the Storm32 controller to my Pixhawk, but what about the other two? 

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated!  Feel free to suggest other models as well if you don't have any experience with these.

 

Thanks!

    Thanks!  So I'm a bit of a n00b on the hardware side...where can I find a replacement motor?  It's kind of hard to find any details on the motors used.  Or maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.

    I would go with the Storm32 gimbal. It has nice integration with the pixhawk. If only one of your motors is bad then just replace it and your gimbal will work fine.
