Hi everyone,I am building an own gimbal and searching for a siutable motor.There are a lot of options over the internet, but almost no reviews.Could you advice a reliable motor for a 200-300g camera?Thank you!

My project is dedicated to very special people, and I must admit, that it is not easy to reach them. Therefore, I am asking everybody to share this at local sites, as every customer is important for me."
Thank you all for your feedback!After collecting opinions around the internet I am feeling optimistic about my project and ready to push forward.A careful search and a long-lasting correspondence with Chinese manufactures revealed several options…
"Joseph, yes 3D printed parts are perfect for prototyping in general. In my case I was lucky to have an access to a laser cutter, where I made a lot of attempts with plastic plates. And for the blue clamps on the arms I have used a standard one +…"
"Oh, that is really sad!
Your project is great! It shows the strong sides of 3D printing.
I will definitely think about using some printed parts in my design. However, I don't want to sacrifice the portability. Xcompact frame for 17 inch props will…"
"Jamie, the main goal is to fit a 600-800 mm copter into a backpack.
My prototype shows that it is possible.
The NEED is to make it reliable. It seems that the best solution is to order custom CNC parts. So currently I am working on this option."
"Vince, yes I saw your video. What props do you have? 15 inch?
I don't think that 3D printed parts can replace CF/GF plates well enough. May be it will work for some aluminium clamps. But still 3D printed parts have low mechanical strength, so you…"
"Muscate, I find the frame solid enough. I can compare only with Predator 650 frame that I had before, and it's the same. Probably because I fix arms only with screws (no clips). With CF or GF plates instead of PMMA it should become only better. "
"Armen, it appears that production of one or two frames will be quite expensive. However, if we are taking about approximately 50 frames, the price can become affordable. Roughly 200-300$. I am looking for options now, hope to have the exact numbers…"
