    Glad I purchased this gimbal

    Better than DJI Osmo and so easy to use.


    The gimbal is truly incredible, the only thing I don't like very much is the app and the motion tracking is quite bad, but the rest of the things are the best


    Doesn’t fit iPhone 13 Max

    Nice work

    Smooth5 review from a newb

    Quailty is very good… maybe even great…. 🔝 Features seem complete. ✅ Both apps seem to work fine for me - many reviews on those apps are not good but so far, so good for me. 👍🏻 I am happy with the purchase, just need to learn how to use it effectively and memorize all the controls on the handle and on the apps...

    Thank you for your comments.
