        Answer

        It'll fit. This stabilizer doesn't screw into the go pro. Two screws connected to a small bracket clamp down on the camera. So, as long as your camera isn't taller than the go pro, it should fit. No telling though if it will function the same, weight, length, and camera depth will play a significant role, because the motor can only accommodate a small amount of weight.

      If using with a Hero 4 Silver, does motor noise get picked up through the video? I heard some GoPro models pick up a lot of noise from the motors because of where the mics are mounted.   (4 Answers)

        Answer

        I haven't had any issues with noise. Make sure if you get the Gimbal you read the instructions. Do not turn on the gimbal unless you have a camera on it. That can damage the motor and allow for noise. I have not had any issues at all with noise.

        Yes, Skylabs website. Same thing happened to me. It's a packaging issue. The instructions slide right out of the box because they are just laid on top of the product.

        The box it came in is probably the best thing available. You can get it back in the foam with a camera attached if you turn the camera to face into the box.
