Great deal on a 3 axis gimbal with Alexmos controller

Just had to tell all of you about this $59.95 three axis gimbal deal on EBay:

This seemed like a great deal and looks to be identical to DYS Gimbal on Hobbyking which is $200.00.

I got one and quality appears excellent though I haven't tried to use it yet (I will probably get another.) 

I'm planning on converting to a Storm 32 for a laser rangefinder scanner.

Apparently DSLRPros has moved on and is wholesaling them out.

I get nothing from anybody for this, but if you want a real 3 axis gimbal, this is the best deal you'll ever see.

Heres a link to the manual for the DYS: http://www.getfpv.com/media/wysiwyg/documentation/3AxisbrushlessGim...

Heres a link to the Basecam (Alexmos) Home page: http://www.basecamelectronics.com/

And a link to download the appropriate 8bit Alexmos Gui: http://www.basecamelectronics.com/files/SimpleBGC_GUI_2_40b7.zip

And a link to download the Alexmos manual PDF file: http://www.basecamelectronics.com/files/v10/SimpleBGC_manual_2_4_en...

(This does include the Alexmos 3rd axis expansion board.

Best regards to you all,

Gary

"30x zoom on a SAR rig, and can only get to 12-15x zoom before it starts bouncing;"

 If your lens is extending as it zooms, then the center of gravity is shifting.  The weight of the optics would overcome a small gimbal motor's ability to hold it still.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for letting us know about the additional ones.

I just ordered a second one.

These seem a really excellent value, especially for a true 3 axis gimbal.

Is there anything you can tell us about these that might be of value?

I have already included all the information I could find that seemed relevant.

Best Regards,

Gary

Hi All,

Here is the updated EBay link for the current batch of the 3 axis gimbals.

I would suggest if you want one sooner rather than later.

Best,

Gary

Gary, you've pretty much posted all the info we have. I want to try one with a Storm controller as well, let me know how that works out.
