    At NAB, it came with a nice drop-in stand that allowed a quick way to set the gimbal down while still having it upright. You can take the gimbal out of the case and put it in the drop-in stand to set up the camera and balance without having to mess with screwing it onto a mini-stand. That was a really nice feature. In this video, they replaced it with the mini-tripod. I don't like that since it's a pain to take on and off. I'd rather have what they showed at NAB. If I want a mini-tripod as well, I can get that anywhere.

    I noticed that there doesn't look like there is a place to put the two-handle option in the case. That's probably why they forgot to ship it.

    Yeah that would be nice for sure... screwing it on is a pain.

    They said they're out of stock of the handles but will send me them soon.
