Hi, i'm just buying my first GoPro today, the Hero+ and also want to order a Gimbal for it. I'm loving the look of the Feiyu Tech G4 FY-G4 Gimbal 3 Axis Handheld Steady Camera BUT...

Would this Hero+ work with it?

If not what Gimbal would be ok with it?

~Many thanks in anticipation :)

The Hero+ is built into the case - there are currently very few, if any, gimbals that work with GoPro cameras within a waterproof housing. Gimbals are currently only for the naked GoPro variety.
Keep an eye on the new Removu S1 Gimbal coming soon though, as that should be compatible.......

We have some excellent threads for these discussions for the FY-G4 as well (see below) . As Ifti said there are two or three Kickstart.com projects soon to release by Jan 2016 , they are sold out at 175.00 (see link) they said it will allow the WP case , they go by two names Remuvo & Slick, one gimbal, one allows the other may not.

If you want one faster the link and pic bellows attaches via 1/4-20 thread, and uses a larger motor, These motors ae not powerful enough to keep weight balanced due to the KV the higher the KV< the more power they use, and larger they get, would you want a compact or a sub compact, most want sub compact then compact.

This shows and tells Gopro.com one thing people are saying we do not like the Waterproof casing, and want a design like the Session, and that may be the next gopro hero 5. think about it?

Yeah right? Love to see that, did they ever get the Drone out.

I bet they are doing away with the waterproof casing more people dunked their products, and the session is proof?

I agree they better get one out, they would do a killing.

In the long run the Hero 4 Silver will Be ideal, but your budget comes first....

The weakness of GoPro Hero + are you cannot remove camera from housing, and you can not change the battery. I have just got 1 in last weekend, with 3 fully charging, I only can use this cam around 1 hour (turn off wifi, 1080 p 30fps).
