Do you sell one of this? I mean one for just plug and play? I don't mind if it used.

This is a great gimbal. I have printed it out and looking forward to testing it. Can I recommend a slight alteration to the pitch arm... it needs a recess where the arm mounts to the roll motor. My motor has a protrusion in the case around the shaft. I had to cut a small piece out of the pitch arm to get it to sit flush. There is a recess in the pitch arm where the pitch motor fits, just another on the other end would work.

A hole in the roll arm would restrict adjustment of CoG. If you are using a motor with protrusion and possibly 3 mounting holes, I can recommend the adaptor disc found in the Goodluckbuy version: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:374217

Hi, opted for new motors as per your parts list. The only problem I have is the camera holder is really tight. I am having trouble getting the camera to fit into it without using force? Is this correct?

Depending on your printer and layer height, the camera holder is a tight fit. You need to angle it in, first using the "ear" without the hole (the ear will flex a little) and then sliding the other ear into the slit. Hope that makes sense?

Do you have a vendor to source the camera extension cable? I cannot seem to find a "soft enough" cable so it does not interfere with the gimbal operation. I would be so grateful if you had a source/supplier.

I use the ones listed in the parts list https://sites.google.com/site/motorpixiegimbals/Resources/MotorPixie%202D%20gimbal%20parts%20cost.pdf?attredirects=0&d=1

Just be sure to make it long enough and run it in a curve under the roll motor.

You can actually cut part of the plastic off that specific jack plug, to make the wire bend nearer to the Jack plug.

Thank you for the kind words :-) I have added a parts list to the files, that should make it easier to complete the build (I has pictures! ;-)

I dont have the vision 2 anymore, just bought the vision 2+. This is one of the best design I have seen so far, I really like it and all Cudos for the nice, sleak, and awesome design!
