i receive mine yesterday, tomorrow i will test it, looks great and very easy to setup
Have it siting on my work bench. Ordered it, then had a solo malfunction. My replacement solo arrived to my work today. I'll be picking it up tomorrow. I like the idea of this, because I'll be able to run my polar pro filters with the gimbal balanced.
i can see the purpose of this if you own aftermarket lenses, but the balance instructions using stock gimbal weights works well for SRP filters...saved me $50
Just got mine today. Having a bit of trouble getting it to fully balance. I'm close, but it's not perfect.
In this instance I'm trying to balance a Hero 4 Black with a Peau Productions 3.97 lens and a BlurFix Air ND8/CP.
I can get the pitch balanced easily, but it still rolls a bit (away from the motor - to the right if your looking at the Solo, which would be the left from the Solos perspective). To balance the roll I tried sliding the sleeve all the way over (toward the motor). It can't go any further. I have to add another little weight to balance the roll, but then that throws off the pitch. I'm still thinking I can get it perfect, but it hasn't been as easy as some have described.
If I'm missing something, please let me know.
Haven't flown it yet. I've always questioned the need to balance perfectly. I mean once its up there in the wind, there are a lot stronger forces trying to knock the camera askew than what little force is exerted by the additional weight of a filter. You can blow a solo gimbal out of wack with your own breath. Imagine how hard it has to work in a constant wind. What's a little extra weight?aside from not being able to perfectly balance yours, how do you like it? do you think its a placebo or a must have accessory? i currently use srp blurfix filters and do not balance anything.
