Great device, app.. not so good.
I love my new gimbal, I can’t fault it so far. I found the instructions for set up difficult to follow so I watched YouTube videos on the set up. The app didn’t download onto my phone at first, when it did it took up too much storage and was crashing, I ended up deleting the app and just using my own camera with the gimbal in its normal functions without zoom or app connectivity.
I don’t like the idea of paying a subscription for the app so I’ll just use the gimbal as is for now.
