(All the promo videos from 3DR have been stabilized in post, so those don't count.)
My understanding Jeff is that although the Solo is shipping and customers have them, the gimbal is not available yet, and you can mount a GoPro to it as shipped, but not stabilized with gimbal.

That would explain the shaky video if true.

Greg, thanks for the heads-up about the gimbal. I was not aware it hasn't shipped yet.

Is there any word about an ETA for a ship date?

I've been seeing reports from other places on the net that are Solo oriented and it seems some are having issues. Some of them will be fixed via software/firmware updates. I am hopeful that there isn't a hardware defect that is at the root of some issues as that will be harder to correct.

I was going to go pick one up the other night but have decided to hold off for now.
