The Gimbal is this one from Goodluck Buy , although every thing I ever order from them came , they made me uncomfortable ...just that something... cant really put my finger on it , so maybe take this as a warning ...rethink buying from Goodluck Buy ?
Gimbal works well although I am only using 2 axis's.

Also one change I made ...Now running 12x4.5 Inch carbon props , this allow me to get the throttle back to 50% for hover ...the motors are running warm which is a bit of a worry and something I will monitor , meaning I hope it does not seize up while flying ... those are 850KV motors . HEY ecalc reckons it can handle the props !
