      In general, this gimble works well with my GoPro 5 Black. It is solidly built, movements are smooth, reasonably priced, came with a nice case, and email support was prompt. However, there are several areas for improvement. 1) The original gimble came with 4 X 900 mAh batteries and a charger, the new ones only have 1 X 2000 mAh battery with no external charger, a bad way in cutting cost given that it will not last all day. 2) Website is outdated, the "new" battery is not even available for sale at the website (where can I buy it?) and there is no info about the battery change. 3) The design to secure the GoPro needs to be changed. Ideally, it should be a quick release since users cannot access any cover on the GoPro while it is mounted. It becomes a hassle when users need to change the SD card, battery, connect the USB cable, or to charge the GoPro. 4) Since GoPro 5 came waterproof, it makes sense to design the gimble at least rainproof. Overall, this gimble does what it meant to do; with some improvements, it can greatly improve customer experience.

      Worked well but battery died quick.

      I was excited to finally get an affordable gimbal for my GoPro hero 5. Online it said two batteries though, on the box it didn't. It really needs two batteries in my opinion. For me using the directional control feature the battery seemed to last just 30 minutes. It was quite disappointing to be sightseeing in Paris and have it die on me after so short of a time. It is useless after the battery dies. It would be nice if you could at least lock it into place if there is no power. When it has power I think it works well stabilizing the image. Putting the GoPro hero 5 in it and taking it out is a Little akard I didn't feel comfortable doing it while on the go.

      Great Gimbal but...

      This gimbal is great. It’s well crafted and functions well. The supporting app adds a plethora of features. This isn’t well dicumented and I spent a fair amount of time uncovering the hidden gems But...the thing suddenly stopped working while still under warranty. I opened a support case using SkyLab’s website weeks ago and have only gotten an automated response. They don’t have a published telephone number. Customer service is bad. They’ll need to do much to redeem themselves.

      First, the bad news.. there is no way to get to the ports on a Hero5 Black with this. So, no way to plug-in the mic adapter. But I won't lower the score over that. This unit is ridiculously stable. I was running and the image was still looking like it was on a camera dolly. Very smooth. It works at any angle, as well, even upside-down. I like the joystick button for very clean pans. Really glad I bought this !

      We were looking for a 3 axis gimbal for our GoPro Hero 4 Silver and had looked at several competitors before stumbling on this model. It’s a Best Buy Only model and we are very glad we found it! It’s terrific, easy to use, correctly calibrated right out of the box and on top of all that, very nicely priced! Very happy with our purchase. If something happened to the one we have now, we’d buy another one right away.

      Got this for my daughter for her GoPro Hero 5, she loves it but has not fully used all the functionality it has to offer. She does like the battery life and the automated operation. It was a better price and provides the same feature as the higher price model

      I have zero complaints about this rig. My issue with it was there was only one battery and battery docking station as described in the add on the Best Buy website. I would recommend it to if you are ok with only one battery. Operated nice and smooth.

      I was super surprised how silent this gimble is. I've seen other brands in video reviews and they made a lot of noise that sensitive camera mics would definitly pick up. Very pleased with it's resonsive smooth function as well.
