Our Overall rating
All in all customers recommend the wingsland 3 Axis to any Gopro user as a fairly cheap way to stabilize footage.
If you are looking for a decent gimbal without breaking the bank, and which provides you a great user experience, this is the right product for you.
If you are a Hero 5 Owner though, or if you are thinking of an upgrade later on, we would advise to invest a little more money;
Buy something like the EVO GP pro, or Karma grip (checkout our homepage for reviews).
In the end, WINGSLAND is primarily a drone manufacturer, and we are not sure how much effort will be put into developping and supporting their gimbals.
The Vipro is still a really nice product for the price, can’t really be beaten at this price point at the moment.
