Editor's Notes

October 29, 2018:

Discovered that users are typically pleased with the value provided by the Roxant Pro at its relatively affordable price tag. Some gimbals, while quite functional physically, do not offer the most intuitive software, which helped prevent them from ranking higher on this list.
