Would the Martinez type controller be suitable for a brushless gimbal and if I ordered one, how does it get it's power?

did they recommend one for the gimbal? I power mine using the receiver in spare channel the controller will come with red black wire, I just joined it to a servo wire you don't use the white cable

Well. They said that the Martinez or RCTimer are the best open source controllers. I think they take some setting up though. Hard to get hold of the Martinez but the RCTimer one is available at $33

I looked at that one but it is the copy of a Martinez without the FTDI chip and it seems there are problems with tuning. Going to order the RCtimer one.
