I have seen the roto pixel after market gimble but the price seems a bit high to me considering the components. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with the knock off cheap ones. I am familiar with a solder iron so I am more curious about performance.

mine arrived today... i watched many videos on the subject and after comparing a half dozen or so, i decided to spend the extra cash.  ive never seen a dissatisfied rotorpixel review but i have seen dissatisfied knock off reviews .  having said that, i also thought the price diff was dramatic enough to where budget being a higher priority for some could legitimately give an urge to go with knockoff.  fortunately, i am not on a budget for this one

The rotorpixel sounds like its the only alternative with a decent reputation. Still not convinced its worth $350+. I might take a gamble on the knock off.....

The problem with the rotorpixel is you may as well have bought a plus by the time you spend that on a gimble. If anyone tries one of these cheapies please report back on it. Not having a 3 axis gimble is the only thing I don't like about the Vision. Hell, 2 axis would do!

Yes I agree. The only reason I want to upgrade my current setup is the camera on the new vision seems like it has a lot of issues with noise and low light shots.
