expired FeiyuTech Vimble C 3 Axis Gimbal from Tomtop AU$121.04 Delivered

31
HTY50FYTY

Updated with new code.
This looks similar to the Zhiyun Smooth-Q that was on sale recently (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/317639) but this seems much cheaper but also has some slightly different features (some better such as using while charging and some worse such as 12hrs vs 5hrs use time). This site has a comparison about 2/3 of the way down the page https://actioncamguides.com/cheap-yet-good-gimbal-vimble-c-f....
I haven't bought this so can't comment if it's good or not, just seems like a good deal.
You must use the coupon code and i have no idea how long it is valid for. I tested it and the price went from AU$189.04 to AU$134.64 with free 12 day (supposedly) shipping.

    Tomtop is a registered fraudulent site in the Australian online shopping domain.

    All positive feedback is carried out via Tomtop incentives to people whom have not purchased from the site. The Australian consumer watchdog, or ACCC is almost at the completion of their investigation.

    Following the report the Australian governments cyber criminal bureau will action warnings nationally for any engagement with this site.

    After the financial loss I incurred after purchase of a product that was never shipped I took it upon myself to offer my legal aid and collate a group of dissatisfied customers to provide evidence to the ACCC.

    I hope we continue to discourage more than the 3,800 already prospective shoppers from Tomtop in hope of awareness of their unlawful business dealings.

    There will be a response to this message from Tomtop in wanting to be seen in providing compensation, however this is corrupt much like all the positive feed back which has been traced to Tomtops subsidiary IP address (very poor cover up) .

    This message wil be circulated amongst all online shopping review platforms in order to protect consumers.

      I've never bought from Tomtop so can't say either way but where do i see fraudulent sites listed in Australia? I went to the ACCC and Scamwatch sites and couldn't find any such lists. Not saying the list doesn't exist, i just couldn't find a legitimate one that isn't just in user comments and forums.
      One thing seems to be that if it's Tomtop, Banggood, Tinydeal, Geekbuying, Aliexpress or any other China website they all seem to have people with bad experiences and people with ok experiences, not may with good experiences though. This, by the way, is just my opinion.
      I'll also update the code to the better one supplied below for those willing to take a punt!

    Bizarre productreview rants aside…… I wouldn't use Tomtop again after my experience with them…..
    However….. fortune favours the brave, and for those willing a punt with these guys, the code HTY50FYTY drops the price to $121.04. I wish you luck….

    Black cheaper usd10 with HTY50FYTY code

    I almost put my money in on Kickstarter and backed off at the end, it was called Vimbal S (overseas version) and C = Chinese version. Then I realised there's lack of support/firmware updates, the gimbal constantly shaking and no one from the dev team seems care about it. It's not really a Feiyu branded and if you find reviews online including their own kickstarter video, you will find the build quality isn't as good for the price tag. I wouldn't recommend to buy this product.

      My understanding is that the Kickstarter company used Feiyutech to produce the gimbal and as part of the deal they could develop the vimbal C as its own distinct product so it theoretically has different support and development post the initial version…if there is any difference.
