Nice video. Can you tell us about your setup? Did you have an adaptor for the SJ7? I also have a smooth q, but I'm currently mounting it directly (using selfie mode so the camera can face the correct direction).

Only problem i have with the little action cameras on a gimbal is most often you will not be able to see the screen on the camera, so aiming are down to chance and the wide angle lens.

You can use Adapter or connected by wifi and liveview on your phone.

I have one but using the SJ7 seems to put large amounts of stress on the motors and cause motor whine / heat buildup as the cam is just a bit too light.

This is correctable by adding a little extra weight. Since the SJ7 does not have a tripod mount I just zip tied a metal piece to the bottom. No more motor whine or excess heat.

It seems like a decent device so far but further testing is needed to come to a proper conclusion.

There was a script released. We asked them to add support for RAW, but, it seems like they are finishing working on the rest of the bugs before adding new things. SJ8 will have it.
