Review of Zhiyun Smooth Q & GoPro Hero5 balance Plate


This is a review and walk through setup and mode operation of the Zhiyun Smooth Q 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer for Smartphone & Gopro Hero 6 / 5 / 4 / 3 & Xiaomi Yi action camera from Amazon.
I found at Ebay too for around 100 dollars

The Smooth Q gimbal with the PgyTech Balance Plate plate allows me to use it with my GoPro Hero 5 & 6 Action cameras too. Here at

The PERGEAR Aluminum Mini Tripod Tabletop Stand is found at Amazon. Here's that link:
I was surprised at how solid this H5 plate is. It is a solid metal piece with no burs or crooked cuts. PGYTech Plate is well balanced and fits snug in the Smooth Q gimbal.

The extension rod I have in this video is about 3 years old. I got it online and couldn't remember where. I did find this one that looks like it's made for this gimbal at Gearbest.

The Hero 5 is sold at Ebay
and Amazon
The Smooth Q's next competitor is the DJI Osmo 2
