    get the 2 axis gimbal now or wait fit the three?

    Just like the title says. Spend the 100 on the 2 axis now. Or wait for the 3 axis?

    I watched a video on YouTube from the 2 axis and it seemed kinda chunky if that makes sense. So far in happy with the quality the stock mount works.

    I'd like ti hear your opinions

    Well I have not seen the 3 axis yet but it will be the same mount as the 2 axis with a swivel axis point. The 2 axis works just like it should. Program the set point and the camera points in that direction at all times.

    I'm in the same boat. I think the 2 axis is adequate but then I read about the 3 axis gimbal control in flight link (I guess the 2 axis will not have the feature) and FPV framing.. Will that be part of the 3 axis or separate.

    It just depends on your needs. If you want a gimbal for camera usage, you would be fine with the 2 axis. I've used a GoPro on the 2 axis and it's been able to do absolutely everything I needed.

    What does the 2 axis offer better than the regular mount? Both point forward but see the 2 axis can be positioned different before take off. Why spend the bucks when you can just turn the aton toward your object ou want to film?

    The fixed position points where ever the copter points and the video shows every pitch and turn. The two axis gimbal points in the same direction but allows the Aton to move all over the place while the camera stays steady.

    Is that in full turn around too? Don't own the 2 axis gimbal so don't know the capabilities.

    It's an active gimbal. It compensates for Aton movement and keeps your camera level. With the fixed mount, your picture will tilt every time you change direction. With the 2-Axis gimbal, the picture stays clear and level.
