    Is CS 3-axis the best gimbal on the market at the moment for cameras likes 5D, FS100?
    Is it better with Radians or Picloc V2?

    Will there be any improvements to the gimbal after NAB that are worth waiting for?

    I don't want to throw my money away if there will be release of big Zenmuse style gimbal in a month or two.

    I'm looking at the brand called flightcopter. It seems no one has heard of them but I really like their gimbal and the examples they've shown.

    If it's not direct drive it's just another ordinary servo driven gimbal giving you just about the same results as all other servo driven gimbals.

    Carlos that machine has no landing gear so it requires some brave person to hold it to take off and catch it when there want to land!!
