    I see the Feiyu MG V2 is already discontinued and appears to be replaced with the A2000 model wheras the Zhiyun Crane may still be on the same model? Is the Crane generally accepted to be superior? Seems to be the one most people are getting.

    Zhiyun is popular because it has superior software. Virtually all of the other gimbals use software from Basecam, so they cannot distinguish their performance from each other. The most complicated part of a gimbal is tuning the PID for each axis, which can take hours of trial and error. With the Zhiyun, this has been largely eliminated.

    I don't see anything on the Feiyu website that indicates they have their own software.

    The Crane is the only gimbal I have used that is balance and go. No stupid Simple BGC, which is a nightmare and not simple, no tweaking. Mount your camera, balance it and you can start shooting. Love the Crane.
    Always spending money on more gear! It's a sickness.

    I am also curious if the 1DXmkII or 1DC would be compatible with the Zhiyun Crane 2.

    Thank you puredrifting, Paul and ph2003.
    I have a new unopened Feiyu MG V2 that I haven't had time to set up and use. I'm now thinking about parting with it for the Zhiyun Crane
