Got my hands on the Quark!

Postby rogue_kiteboarder » Sun Apr 29, 2018 1:46 am

So I preordered this gimbal as soon as I saw it, at least 9 months ago and have been waiting and waiting. Well, I got a lucky preview of it and got to get it out in the water for a line mount test as well as a hand held test. I am no longer patiently waiting, now I want it here NOW. Here is a quick impromptu review and I will follow up with some GoPro footage that I shot using it after I get it all downloaded and edited.

What order number are you? Still haven't gotten any word on mine, I'm in the 900's.

Hi everyone, glad to have bumped in this post, I was actually going to open one.

I've ordered mine in mid Jan, still waiting for shipping confirmation, I'm in 1100's.

I'm very very disappointed not just with the delay (kind of understandable because it's a new product) but with the continuos rescheduling of shipping date.

First it was March, then April, then May and I was told all the order placed before end of Jan (hence including mine) would have been shipped by then.

Two days ago received a mail saying my order would be shipped mid June.

All this made me think it could be a fraud. Please Rogue_kiteboarder keep us posted on what's going on. Thanks!

Hardware is way harder to build than most companies realise. It's rare even to see a realistic timeplan from professionals who ate supposed to know how to do it.

Okay here is the unboxing and first ride using a mouth mount. The Quark does nothing for overall stabilization but it does keep the horizon level very well.

Here, I went through all the line mounts I have access to and show which ones work. Line mount video coming soon.
