The packing is compact. The box is used in high quality EVA material that can protect equipments well.
It`s a soft feeling and proportion while handheld gimbal combined with smartphone.The design of handheld gimbal is similiar to the outer packing,still pure and fresh.Good texture,it may attract attention when users take out.There are 2 buttons, it`s easily to use.Mode switching by double press or long press.I will introduce how to use these 2 buttons later,now Let`s check out the detail processing.
The power switch and gimbal charging input port both at th bottom of the gimbal,this design avoids the problem of touch switch accidently in the process of shooting. As for it good or bad,it`s all to you.Because I pursue the shooting experience so this design meet my needs.
There are only 2 operation buttons to control gimbal by press in different way.The above one is button A,the below is button B.The distance between 2 buttons is moderate,it`s easy to operate.
1.A quick click.Pan following mode.Locks tilt and roll axes.Camera smoothly pans to follow with the direction of the handle.
2.Double-click on the fast.Pan and tilt following mode.Locks roll axis.Camera smoothly follows the pan and tilt motion of the handle.

S2 is available for 4.0-5.7 inch of your smartphone.The weight of gimbal without smartphone is only 430g,so after a long time shooting users will not have a strong sense of pain.
There are two switches on the smartphone’s card board, card buckle popup switch is on the side, press the button card will automatically pop up, place smartphone on the gimbal need to adjust the width. On the back ,you can see a lock form tag, it`s about to lock switch. The design of double insurance is good for protect users devices, no matter the skateboard, cycling, running or hiking, you don`t have to worry about the loosing problem.
If your gimbal can`t reach balance when your smartphone is properly installed, you should add appropriate counterweight to balance it. The right side of the pitch axis is a heavier groove.
There is a small hole above the pitching axis that can adjust the position of card board, until the device is in the state of balance.
The design of clump weight is to improve the images quality,but personally,I think it`s too complicated, but players who pursuit quality may like it.
On the side of the pitching axis there is a small hole, it`s the power port. Bulit-in rechargeable lithium batteries, can also use as a powerbank ,that`s cute lol
