The Feiyu G3 Ultra gimbal is an affordable way to drastically improve GoPro video quality. Like a gimbal on a drone, the handheld Feiyu gimbal works to keep the video horizontal. This results in a more watchable video that also looks as if the GoPro camera itself was flying! This gimbal is not waterproof and there are also wires that are exposed externally. It’s definitely a tool that one should not simply throw in a backpack while not in use. I kept the original box, as it does a great job in my opinion to better protect the gimbal while not in use. With that said, the build quality feels nice in my opinion but it’s definitely not made for abuse like many monopods are. It comes with 4 batteries (there is one extra) and a USB battery charger with wall plug. It also includes a cable for firmware updates. I doubt that I’ll ever attempt to update the firmware though, as my Feiyu G3 gimbal worked perfectly right out of the box! I use it in conjunction with a naked GoPro HERO4 Black and it works great! I even attached a UV filter to the GoPro HERO4 Black and that didn’t create any problems for me.
