Brushless gimbal almost complete

With the arrival of the Mobius action camera, which is a Full HD (1920x1080 @ 30 Hz) little animal (very nice video quality for the price), my aerial filming addition to my #1 quadcopter is almost complete. The only missing element is the gimbal controller board, which I have ordered through ebay, but my mistake (or not) the seller have sent the MPU6050 instead (which I had at the same time ordered from a different seller). Result: I have two MPU6050 gimbal sensors and no gimbal controller. As such a dispute is being solved, and the seller decided to (supposedly) ship me the controller board. Otherwise I will escalate to ebay, get refunded, and the seller downgraded (or banned, who knows..).

It is a bit of a hassle, as I would otherwise have a complete working gimbal by this weekend. This way it will be another month or so of wait..thank you idiot seller (and me thinking that a $6.5 controller board would be a simple deal).
