can i use this on ThiEye T5e?

  • Yes, it should work as the dimensions are the same as the GoPro Hero 3 and it uses the same sized charging ports.

How many years does it last on average kind of thing such as durability of the product

  • I've had mine for over a year and the product isn't the problem largely... The thing that I am not a fan of is the batteries and the charging method. Also, I would not recommend using a cord on this as it tends to make it much more straining on the axis stabilization.

    Whew, spending so much money on a chinese brand was a little nerve racking to me, but wow did this make an impression out of the box! What I love: *This thing literally works right out of the box. You put your action cam in (I have a Thieye t5e) push the power button and it stabilizes your camera instantly! * Has great modes. Default is Slighty moves left or right as you turn it, but stays vertically stable. Click the button then it has follow mode for all directions. Double click the button at it locks on target and will not move in any direction no matter how much you move it! (Actually very creepy when you first try it!). Lastly, triple click and the camera turns around and focuses on you for selfie mode. Very accurate every time. * Accessories: Firstly it comes with a great selfie stick. Its light weight and very well built, and super easy to attach to the gimbal. It does come with back up rechargeable batteries that do last a very long time. * Usability. It is very easy to learn, and requires very little time getting use to it. I am using this for a secondary camera angle for a show I am working on, and also use it snowboarding. It has been super easy to use in both aspects. What I don't like: *Well being a snowboarder it makes me nervous it is not weather resistant. I did tape over any open plug ins, and it has been fine through a few trips on the mountains. There's also not a lot of gimbals that are weather resistant so i'm not very upset over this. As long as it keeps ticking! *The battery door. hmmm. You have to turn the little screw for like a minute to have it fall out on the floor and search for a tiny little screw on the ground. It's a little annoying, and with is were more streamlined, but luckily I don't have to change batteries very often. * Does not fit a water resistant case for action cams. There are ways around it, like taking a hair band and securing it to the gimbal, or fork out the dough and buying a water proof gopro5. Either way, there are work arounds. Would I recommend it? The answer is a huge YES! I have a Thieye t5e, and it fits perfect in the Rider-M, and man it is fun to watch the super smooth footage you get from this thing! It's definitly an investment, but this thing feels like it is built to last, and really impresses everyone who sees it gets to use it. 5 stars for sure!

    i got my Rider.-M. it's perfect quality. it works as expected. i setup it on my RC Car and my real car, run with it by using my GoPro staff. Now my video is very smooth and pleasant to watch. + got surprise. a stick was in bundling. got additional possibility to take video longer by using gimbal like a charger got smooth video. got a good price $129. all Chinese markets would like to get up to $169. - calibration is big puzzle especially the last action. gimbal doesn't get back camera at exact center. it's not so critical

    Received the gimbal yesterday and so far it is working as expected. Phone app for the gimbal works nicely too, but latest version does not allow me to do a firmware update anymore. I had to plug the gimbal in to the computer to perform the update. Batteries were pre-charged half way which was nice to allow me to start using the gimbal. I also bought a Hero5 adapter plate with my order thinking that i would need it, but out of the box it already included the plate and bracket for the Hero5. Same with other gimbals while using the Hero5 is that you get the motor noise. My go-pro is on the latest firmware 1.57 and which the mic setting to stereo, you can definitely hear the motor. Setting it to Wind reduced the microphone from picking up the motor noise, but it is faint and still present. Just not as noticeable. I ordered the Rider-M from FotoPal, the box included - tripod attachment - 2 sets of batteries (4 in total) - charger - USB cable for computer and charger - 2 Hero3/4 usb cables for the gimbal one to charge and other to charge and control - grip that is extendable - carry case - Rider-M itself.

    Fantastic gimbal, works as described. Does have a bit of learning curve if you're new to gimbals. I had the Zhiyun Evolution which had the long handle attached to it but I got this one bc it's newer and it's smaller/more portable. I needed this especially bc I travel quite a bit and this makes it easier to carry. If I need a handle, they provide one for you in-box that you can screw on/off with quarter-inch. They also give you brackets for both Hero 4 and Hero 5, which is awesome. One last favorite about this gimbal is that I can attach it to my other GoPro accessories (selfie pole, tripod, gorilla pod, chest mount, alligator clip mount) to really make it versatile!

    I tried Yi gimbal in the past and this Zhiyun blows it away. Zhiyun is probably the best wearable gimbal for go pro/yi and similarly sized action cameras. It is small and lightweight, smaller than the Yi gimbal, can be controlled through bluetooth by app or a separate remote controller. Setting can be easily modified through the app or software in the computer. The zhiyun app is good, has many functionalities and very similar to DJI app. It needs improvement tho, like Im using a zhiyun rider M gimbal and it access my phone's camera, for what reason? Just a minor bit and it doesn't really affect the performance of the gimbal itself. The package comes with selfie stick, charger cables, video cable for go pro, batteries and charger, selfie stick , go pro to 1/4" converter and a carrying bag! Wow thats a total value and Im sold on this!

    I did a lot of research trying to find the best unit and well while this one is great I do see some improvements. I'm giving it 5-stars because even though the improvements may impact a great capture, i think its more of a learning curve in properly recalibrating it to work perfect. I'm a professional cinematographer and have used super expensive steady-cam rigs so I do have a lot of experience. This unit does a great job for the GOPRO type wannabes and offers a very cheap solution to getting the difficult shots. I don't think there's a great example of how to set this unit up available from the box documentation.

    Before buying this, I researched other options and chose this one because I use it for shooting footage while riding my mountain bike. I specifically was looking for a gimbal mount that would work best when chest mounted. Other gimbal brands/models had extra hardware parts and cords but this one was the most compact as it's a single entity device that is mounts on my chest strap. The other options have a detachable battery/handle controller connected by a cord that I would have to put in my pocket or backpack while riding and I didn't want to deal with those extra parts. So far, I love and my footage is finally watchable!

    Very nice gimbal. Worth the price. The bluetooth app is wonderful as well. I only have 2 issues, doesnt fit the Hero 5 but that just came out a week ago. Its too big. Not a deal breaker as there are ways around it it and it does fit the Yi 4K perfectly (which I purchased not realizing the hero 5 was in stock, but I kept the Yi 4K anyway as its really nice too). Havent had a chance to test for its intended purpose just yet, which is for mountain biking but I have no concerns of it not being up to the task. Second is I would have felt much better if the gopro mount adapter was aluminum and not plastic. Not a great idea for this kind of weight. The "other" gimbal that was the one thing that I really liked about it. But it didnt check any of the boxes for what I was after. Zhiyun (EVO) got it right in all aspects except this. Had to pull 1 star (would have only been a 1/2 star but you cant do that) My one request is a water resistant version. I ride road, trail and I fat bike in the snow. Id like to know it had at least some basic water resistance (even the Yi 4K outside of the case I wouldnt be afraid of using in the snow). Or simply a slicone cover to fit around the base that would keep all but heavy rains and such out of it. Theres several ways to protect against basic water exposure that dont require a major redesign. Hope to see something soon before the snows hit.

     This gimbal works great. I mounted a GoPro Hero4 Silver to a bike mount on my handlebars and there was a lot of shake in the video. I took my bike out today and used the gimbal on the bike mount and it took out all the shake. Great product! It comes with quit a few accesories - Stabilizing gimbal, Camera protection sticker for pan motor, GoPro accessory adapter (screws in bottom of gimbal and then attach to any GoPro mount), video output and charging cable, camera charging cable, micro USB cable, Battery charger, 4 batteries (18350 Li-Ion, 900mAh each), hand held monopod and carrying case. Works with a wireless remote (sold separately) or use the free app. See the attached video where I tested the gimbal this morning. GoPro Hero4 SIlver mounted in the gimbal and the gimbal mounted to a handle bar mount.

    --UPDATED-- I received my bluetooth remote yesterday to complete my order. I've been able to use the gimbal a couple of times now and honestly, I LOVE IT! I purchased the Feiyu 3 axis WG and had to return it because it was just not built or designed well. Then I researched and hoped that Zhiyun had a better product and they do. Not only does it works like it's supposed to the construction is much better than Feiyu WG. Here are some reasons why I recommend this product: • Can charge the gopro when it is attached to the gimbal. A life saver when your gopro battery dies faster than the gimbal battery • Has a standby mode. Motors don't need to be running all the time and an easy click of the button will get the motors up and running again. • Can mount to a selfie stick (I know a lot of people are asking about this) and can mount to any gopro strap/accessories. • Hours of battery life (even on standby) • Has an app to control the gimbal via bluetooth that actually works • you do not have to use the app, it has a bluetooth remote (additional) • powerful, user experience, and design is EXCELLENT. ---OLD POST--- I just received my gimbal yesterday. I ordered the bluetooth remote but did not receive it. I rate this a 3 star since i didn't receive my complete order. I will update the rating once I get the remote. Also, for those who own this product I've started a group facebook page by invite only which means you can request to join and then will be approved to join. The facebook page is to share experiences, problems, fixes, etc... Please join! Search for "Zhiyun Rider-M WG" [...] I the product (so far) is great. I've only had one day to use it, but so far it is better than the Feiyu WG product which I returned because the pan motor stopped responding. I will share video once I get them uploaded...

    I've been filming with action cameras for awhile now but I just recently found out about these electronic 3 axis gimbals. I will never go back in using my action cameras without them now! I've had a hand held gimbal before but I wanted something that I could attach on my chest harness without being too heavy. I researched and researched by looking up videos and the Zhiyun Rider-M just fit my needs. While researching, one thing that pops up from other gimbal companies are people complaining about their gimbals malfunctioning but I did not see one complain about Zhiyun yet. So I chose Zhiyun. They also have the Evolution but just like other hand helds some theme park employees may give you a hard time if they banned selfie sticks and if they think your hand held gimbal is a selfie stickl. So I didn't want that hassle and got the Rider M instead. The Rider M made me a believer in this tech. It's well built, the batteries do last longer than my Hero4 Silver, my SJ4000 also fits, the form factor is compact just like how I wanted, strong but silent motors, and not only you could control it with a remote control or with the Android & iOs app, you could manually adjust the camera position. I love it! It's crazy how I could watch action cam videos now and could tell if they're using a gimbal or not. I'm happy with my purchase but I kinda want to keep it a secret since I want my videos to be the smoothest hehe. Anyway if you just discovered Zhiyun and the Rider M, you're in for a treat. In my opinion this is the best wearable gimbal!

    Here's more info on it, as well as a review and video made with the gimbal: http://www.sethsbikehacks.com/product/z1-rider-m-camera-stabilizer/ To make a long story short, it's quiet, reliable, and has incredible battery life. I wouldn't use another gimbal after filming with this for a few weeks. Sure, it's really Chinese. I won't dispute that....but what gimbal isn't? The instructions could be better, and it took me a while to find the app. The company actually listened to the concerns from my review and changed things for the better, which is amazing to me. Just check out the videos in the link, I think they will speak for themselves. This takes footage from a normal GoPro and makes it look like a RedBull-produced video.

    One word, AMAZING! First off, I am a novice with video filming but seeing how different video is with and without a gimbal, it is eye popping. My videos look professionally done using this. In regards to the Z1-Rider M, it is extremely easy to use.

    This is a very cool stabilizer. It does work like magic, The Rider M is clever enough to be used on top OR on bottom of the Tascam.
