Feiyu G4-RMT overview

  • 1Description

The G4 Gimbal Remote Control from Feiyu allows you to relocate the control button and joystick found on your G4 handheld gimbal. This is useful when you need to adjust gimbal pan and tilt or switch operating modes when the controls on the gimbal are difficult or impossible access, such as when it is mounted on an extension pole. The remote connects to the gimbal using an included 4' USB cable, which is also used to supply power to the remote from the gimbal.

Please Note: For use with the WG 3-Axis Wearable Gimbal, a separately available mini-USB to micro-USB adapter is required.

    Feiyu G4-RMT reviews

    G4 Gimbal Remote Control is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work with the Feiyu Wearable Gimbal I purchased the remote to use with the Feiyu Wearable Gimbal. On Feiyu's webpage (http://www.feiyu-tech.com/products/13/) they show a cable connecting the remote directly to the wearable gimbal, but for no apparent reason the cable shipped with the remote only works with the FY-G4. The connection port was changed on the wearable gimbal, so you're forced to purchase an adaptor (C2G USB2 MINI B FEMALE TO MICRO USB B MALE B&H# CA27367) to get the remote to work with the supplied remote control cable. I cannot comment on the functionality because I'm waiting for my adaptor to be delivered so I can actually use the remote.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok - but not great I purchased, tried it, then returned it. My intended use was to mount the Feiyu gimbal on the end of a 6' painters pole for a handheld remote jib The remote was going to be mounted to the pole where one hand was going to hold the pole, and a thumb was going to adjust the pan / tilt for shot composition. Reasons it did not work for me? 1. Wired. It has a short length of cable. Unless you are working very close - the 4' length disappears quickly. 2. The directional button was very small for a normal finger use, and not suitable for one-handed operation. It was hard to find the points of contact to reliably move the gimbal. Probably too compact to be really useful. Other than that - it worked.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good This product seemed like it would be a really awesome tool at first, but in practice I don't use it very much. It would work extremely well in conjunction with the extension pole, and definitely if you're monitoring the video footage out of the GoPro while shooting. It would also work quite well if you have mounted the camera on a tripod and are doing tilt and pan shots. This device suffers because of its cord, and would be far better if it were a wireless remote. It was free with the gimbal though when I purchased it, so no complaints here!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile USB connection The remote control works as an extension of the handle gimbal control. However, the tilt up/down works but for some reason, the pan right/left doesn't. I have yet to figure that out. And be careful with the miniUSB connector on the remote; cable stress could cause the connection to break. That will render the remote controller totally useless. You also have to figure out a way to mount the controller to the handle so you can operate with one hand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First one broke The cable pulled out while rough riding at Zion on my mountain bike. So I couldn't control it too well gliding along rainforest trail at Olympic, and my wife complained she didn't want to be looking at dirt in my video. Got another one and reinforced with gorilla tape. So I'm ready for my next scenic adventure.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke Cable pulled out of remote. Looks to be a weak solder connection is only thing holding it in. Also all the functions did not work when it worked. Only tilt worked. I suppose I'll get another one and strengthen it with some tape or something.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory for my FY-4 Gimbal I'm always a little leary buying products like this, but it is working as advertised. I am very satisfied with its operation. Very simple and easy to use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but fragile Works as intended. Be careful when the cable is plugged in to this unit; the port is directly attached to the circuit board and is very fragile.
