From an engineer's point of view, this device is a thing of beauty. Everything from the hardware to software really impressed me, the compact form factor and locking mechanism makes it easy to pack and makes it far less prone to damage from bending when inside a backpack. The controls system is smooth and robust, they really tuned this thing to perfection. The buttons feel fine and controls easy to use. The app is a bit limiting because there is a gap between phone can do and what the app allows the phone to do such as video resolution. If you just want a smoother video recording experience without all the bells and whistles, then you can just use the native camera app.
One thing I would change or add is a marker showing the range of motion for all axis, but this can easily be done with a sharpy so it's not a huge deal.
The other thing I would change is the phone grip because it cant accommodate thick phones or rather, thick phone cases. I had to buy a different slimmer case for my phone to fit on this device. Again not a big deal, but it's something that may have been overlooked.
Overall they did a phenomenal job on this 3rd revision in the and kept the price surprisingly low.
