Wasn't aware that the S1000 is such a heavy Multirotor. What flight times do you get out of the 21000mAh batteries?My take so far is that this (the H3) is a viable integrated gimbal solution that works. I would put the M5 in that category, of course (though I have not personally put it in the air yet). Also in that category is the DJI Zenmuse series, but this option is limited by single camera/lens choice in each gimbal offering. Going further, the latest phantoms and the Inspire are great but also have their limitations.
The Gremsy software is very easy to use. They offer nice mounting hardware solutions. And their support is very good (over on Facebook, which is not my preferred choice, but they are responsive there).
The H3 is a perfect size for flying small cameras (GH4, Sony A7, BMPCC, the Blackmagic micro if they ever release it, etc.). With the A7Rii, loxia 35mm lens, battery, etc. (all up weight) the H3 and camera/lens come in at 4 pounds 6 ounces. That excludes a few ounces for the quick release and mount on the copter, but the bottom line is that this is about as light as it gets. All-up (with 21000 mAh battery) my S1000 is almost exactly 9kg.

I'm flying my H3 with a X8 and a 12000mAh battery which is good for about 20 minutes of flight and the hole copter with the h3 and a GH4 is under 6 kilos.
But to get back on topic, I do really like how the h3 is performing so far. Only have a couple of flights in light wind on it though.

The S1000 is about 4.5kg unloaded. Add a 5 pound battery and 4.5 pound gimbal/camera, and my setup hits right at 9kg all up. With the 21000 mAh battery, flight time is a little over 15 minutes with some to spare.
Don't have to weigh it again, my rig is exactly 5983 grams flying weight. Using a light frame which only weighs in at 334 grams and the light Mikrokopter Flight-Ctrl plus Navigation and a Double Quadro V3 cool ESC, you end up with a light rig. Although I have to admit, that I wasn't expecting the difference to the S1000 to be that big. I have been flying this rig with a different gimbal for well over a year now and have had no problems what so ever, even in very strong winds. With the S1000 on the other hand you have the ability to fold the arms which I obviously don't have with my rig, so transport should be easier with the DJI.Somethings not right here. 9 kg vs 6kg with part of it being a battery, 4 fc arms and 4 motor mounts. MultirotorUser, could you re-weigh your rig.....
I'm using the damper system of an old dragon gimbal. You can see the gimbal here:Hi Multirotoruser
What kind of dampeners are you using on your rig? We've been going mad trying to make the GH4 stable on H3, but no luck. Gremsy support has been very responsive, as you say, but non of their suggestions have worked so far. We're a bit concerned that this small bumpy footage might be "as good as it gets"
Do you have a short clip you could share (without post stabilisation)?
