Depending on your skills and the materials you choose to use for your gimbal, you will experience either a professional or at best a average quality camera stabilizer.
You can chose to use the famous, and extremely versatile AlexMos/Basecam gimbal control board as the "brain" of your system. If you decide to build a different gimbal in the future, this multi-purpose control board can be removed and installed in just about any other gimbal out there. Any standard protective case for this board, will ensure its long-term safety, if/when you crash.
All camera functions remain unchanged with your gimbal installed, except manual tilt-control, which is best controlled by 7th channel on your controller in any case. Use the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Gimbal Tool to enable 7th channel on your controller. In fact, since your gimbal allows the camera to point straight downward, you can finally get a picture of your bald spot from your Phantom 2 Vision - all while stabilization is still occurring.
The tilt function of the gimbal can be precisely operated with Phantom 2 Vision 7th channel. This must be enabled before hand with the DJI Phantom 2 Vision Tool (Windows only - sorry!), found in the ressources section.
Depending on how cheap you are, the gimbal motors are capable of stabilizing cameras almost 2 times the weight of the Vision camera, so there's no chance that they will burn out, or have trouble dealing with the added weight of lens/filter accessories. Due to the physics of stabilization, you will need to balance your gimbal every time you change your gimbals center of gravity, by switching cameras or attaching accessories.
When using the MotorPixie gimbal in combination with the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition or 3+ Black Edition, WIFI range can be dramatically improved by using the GoPro Range Extender.
All of our builds are based on the premise, that as many materials as possible can be reclaimed from other builds, or even home appliances no longer in use.
