FeiyuTech Bluetooth Remote Review



In this video, we are taking a closer look at the FeiyuTech Bluetooth Remote. For my demonstration, I will be using the remote with the FeiyuTech G5 and the WG 2, however, the remote is compatible with most of the FeiyuTech gimbals and as stated on their page it will also remain compatible with future gimbals that have not yet been released.

Why do you need a remote for a gimbal? well, for the most part, you don’t. Most of the time when we use gimbals we are holding them or have them mounted and all functions of the gimbal are within reach on the handle. However, there are those times when a remote can come in handy. For example, if you have your FeiyuTech gimbal mounted on a vehicle while driving and you want to change the angle, you can simply use the joystick on the remote to adjust it without having to get out of the vehicle. This can be useful for un-interrupted footage or nice smooth panning motions. A second scenario would be if you have your gimbal mounted on a helmet while mountain biking. It would be inconvenient to remove the helmet every time you wanted to reposition the camera, with the Bluetooth remote you can change modes and angles on the fly.

The FeiyuTech Bluetooth remote is one of those accessories that you will not use on a regular basis but it does definitely come in handy from time to time. The fact that it works with most FeiyuTech products also makes it a great value. No need to buy a remote for every gimbal you own.
