    Feiyu FYG5 Reviews

    G5 Handheld Gimbal for GoPro HERO7/6/5/4 & HERO 2018 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great product for traveling. Lightweight and easy to carry in your backpack. I only gave it 4 stars because it was a little hectic to calibrate it from a program you have to download from the website. Other than that, everything works pretty well and I've been running around Greece and China with it. My footage was so smooth! Even riding in a car on rough roads while hanging out of the window is great. I wish they added a handle to the bottom of the Gimbal. Like a strap around your wrist incase someone hits your hand and you might drop it. There were some close calls, but luckily I had to grip it tight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay It will do, but i am not 100% happy. It seems to have a mind of its own. It requires me to fiddle my hand in multiple ways just to get it to turn sideway. For anyone who wonders if i read the manual and understand different modds available - yes and yes. As far as stabilizing, it does what its suppose to. I use it for short clips so i can cht out the fiddling in between but for anyone interested in filming a longer sessions, i would not recommend this one. Unless my unit is defective...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Total fail I'd have to rate this item a total fail. The action of the motor affects the audio of the GoPro5 (which actually has decent audio capabilities, compared to previous models), making ALL of it totally un-useable. Since there's no audio input (and can't run a separate line to camera, you can basically only use this item if you have no interest in capturing audio). So, that alone is a fail. But also, the gimbal itself is highly unreliable. Sometimes it's okay, but usually within a longer shot, it will simply skitz out and turn in some random, unwarranted direction. If you're trying to capture crucial action (and won't get a second chance) I wouldn't rely on this item. Wasted money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features, but not the best. I purchased this gimbal back in December because I liked the idea of it being water resistant and the only thing (at the time) that was compatible with my hero 5. I really enjoyed using this as my first gimbal but since day one I noticed some issues. The panning controls are a lot slower than I expected and there seems to be no way to speed them up in the settings via the app. This isn't an issue when shooting at superview, but that's not the only setting I tend to use. If you are doing anything while operating the gimbal at the same time, it can be a hassle paying attention to both. I went out to the slopes of Breckenridge to test it out. During that time I either had to constantly adjust what it was pointed at, restart it due to a malfunction, or just ride and forget about the shots I was trying to get. This product is still new so I'm hoping that the malfunctions will become less frequent, as well as an increase in panning responsiveness in future firmware updates. I really like the ability to mount it to tripods for higher angles or a hands free motion control via the app. It's great for the price, I have no prior gimbal to compare it to, but I'm hoping that the problems I'm experiencing now, aren't everlasting. TDLR Steady footage, low motor noise, and if you don't mind devoting your whole attention to it every time you plan on using it, then go for it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great. The gimbal works very well. It takes some time to understand the operating instructions because the instruction booklet that comes with it is terrible. The print is so small you need a magnifying glass and the illustrations don't really tell you how to use it. My recommendations are to get the operating instructions on YouTube. Other than that, I does a nice job. I recommend getting an extension stick to provide more variety in the shots. I would also recommend finding a wrist lanyard that would screw into the handle to prevent dropping the gimbal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from G5 gimbal the sound in the gimbal is very loud expecially with hero5. do not recommend with hero5.a tough gimbal. I fell face down and hit the gimbal on hard snow but the gimbal does not break.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy and Bluetooth does not work Returned the first unit because: 1.no Bluetooth connection could be established 2. No soft ware to update the unit with a Mac 3. Software for PC generated only error message 4. No technical support from manufacturer Second unit has the same issue. Keeping the unit because it is the only splash proof unit on the market and it has a good battery life. Unit is not completely balanced when switched off. Counterweight needs a few more grams. Switched on it balances and works well with a hero 5. Motor is noisy! Does not effect shots in noisy environments, but makes it useless to record a conversation. All it would take to fix it are some rubber pads to insulate camera and gimbal. No problems with the return of the first unit. B&H was great. No support from manufacturer at all. If you do not have an urgent need, wait till one of the other manufactures, which have customer service come out with a splashproof version.

    question

    Can the gimbal charge the Gopro?
    Asked by: Patrice O.
    Yes. The gimbal includes a set of really short micro-USB to USB-C or Mini-USB cables specifically to allow the camera to be plugged in to the gimbal allowing the camera to charge from the gimbals battery while it is powered on. This will compromise the IPX rating of the GoPro. Also, on the Hero5 the USB port is located behind a hinged port cover, which would remain open, possibly risking being bumped and damaged. The gimbal operations are not obstructed by the USB cable or open port cover.

    I just got my G5 and it works satisfactorly ...

    I just got my G5 and it works satisfactorly except for audio interference from its motors on the GoPro. It sounds like running water and is present about 90% of the time. Does anyone have a fix suggestion?
    Asked by: Steve
    Outside of doing MOS shots or using and external mic, there is not much that can be with the sound of the gimbals motors.

    question

    What is the exact weight of this gimbal? (specify with or with out batteries)
    Asked by: comm c.
    This gimbal weighs 271 grams without the battery. We do not have the weight of the battery listed, however the battery it uses is very small and will not make a major difference, it should only add 20 grams or so.

    question

    HiWould it work with the Garmin Ultra 30 camera while in it's case? Thanks
    Asked by: Zvi Jacob
    I'm afraid not, this gimbal is specifically for the GoPro Hero6, 5 and 4. Instead you may want to look at the Zhiyun Crane-M, which will work with an action camera like the Garmin Ultra 30.https://bhpho.to/2lXuSBH

    question

    amazon is listing 2 versions. the upgraded version is labeled v2... so which is the B&H one?
    Asked by: jin s.
    I purchased the G5 and I and have had a problem. The G5 when I installed the battery the G5 will not turn off. To turn the G5 off I have to take out the Battery. When I called B & H they told me that there was no repair facility in the US and I would have to send back to China. Had I known this I would never considered Feiyu and disappointed B & H has no answers so it is an expensive Lesson. don't let it happen to you.Thanks Tom M.
