dji phantom 1 with cheap gimbal installation

I have been playing around with my dji phantom drone for a while to capture arial videos around my neighborhood. One constant problem is my neighborhood is kinda windy and the video comes out shaky.

After installing the gimbal, the video is definitely a lot smoother and as an add-on bonus, I can also control the tilt/pitch (meaning rotating up or down) of where the camera is pointing at. Here’s a video after installing the camera:

And apparently, my dog loves it too 😀
