Check eBay but they are expensive... 150ish. Check out 3dr pilots forms and there are some posts about people using alternitve gimbals however I have no first hand experience (picked up 3 gimbals back when best buy blew them out at $40)

Even without a gimbals it super fun to fly. You can also hook up a cheap gopro clone and get fpv from the fixed mount. The official 3dr gimbals however does require a gopro...anyway again amazing machine amazing price even if you don't plan to pick up a gimbals.

Google 'open solo' for some interesting reading about open source flight software you can load to the drone

yeah, the $100-$150 gimbal thing is a deal killer.

eBay is probably your best bet. I bought an extra gimbal when they were on clearance at Best Buy.

The $159 deal is the better one, but I already have a ton of extra batteries and blades. IMO, the gimbal is only a deal breaker if you want to pair with a GoPro

Hardly. That gimbal is only useful if you have a hero 3/4. Otherwise, it's useless.

I can't believe this isn't getting much much more attention. This is a "prosumer" quality drone at a toy price. This should be frontpage and more. Probably one of the best deals this BF.
