    Nice one mate! Keen to hear your thoughts!

    I just picked up the FT WG2 and am currently testing it also, might post some findings when I've had a chance to give it a good test.

    I looked at that but then got talked into going the rider instead, will be good to see some comparisons and quality, apparently the RIDER has faster, more quiet and less power consumption motors. we shall see

    Yeah straight off the bat with the H5B on normal sound mode the tilt motor is noisy. I've just had a go at fixing that, about to go for a street ride with the kids and see if it'd better..

    I would have bought the evo ss myself, but they supplied this to me for test/review so keen to give it a crack!

    Smile cool stuff

    ^^^^^^ not bad for first time set up. I see it lost itself a few times but overall thats pretty good unless you are looking for pro quality. Did you find it interfered at all on yr chest while riding?.
    Unfortunatly I have packed my rig for Canada and can't get on the trails with my gimble, the best I can do is wear it on my commuter rig and see how it goes, I'll throw in some gutter hops n wheel stands to see how it copes

    Not on my bike it didn't. I put it on my mate with his Glory and it got fucked up quite a few times, think I altered the orientation of it though..

    It's no better than the latest WG2.

    I think the common factor is the heavier Hero 5. I never had an issue with the Hero 4 and Session so it's really important to get the Hero 5 balanced and centered.. including placing the lens closest to the gimbal arm. I'm hoping they come out with a new Session 6 that has better quality than the shitty previous version. Then I'll use the Session mount on the WG2 which will be much better.
