I'd love this setup as well however I'm guessing there is an issue with the size/weight of the session being so different than the normal size cameras. The gimbal is probably setup precisely for a certain camera. GoPro may have overlooked this when they first announced compatibility with the session.

Bumping this to help hold GoPro accountable.
Also, all should beware of Fusion. The mobile app connectivity (OverCapture) "available Spring 2018" is reminiscent of this as another undeliverable promise.

Doesn’t look like the Hero5 Session harness will not be happening. Sucks because I’ve already purchased a Hero5 Session, Karma Grip, and Karma extension cable. I currently use the Hero5 Black and Karma Grip with extension as a wearable while on my motorcycle and when traveling on holiday. The Session’s smaller form factor makes for an attractive solution.
I guess I’m pissed because my purchase of the Hero5 Session was predicated a good deal on the promise of a forthcoming harness that will never come to market. Not a good way for GoPro to treat loyal customers. This on the heals of the slow upload speeds of GoPro Plus has started to undermine my confidence in the GoPro brand.

I've got a FeiYu WG gimbal, & although designed for a Hero 3/3+/4 i've made my own adaptor to fit a Session. It doesn't complain despite not counter weighting it. I guess Karma Grip could use a different principle, but they can be quite versitle

I was amped when they said 5 session would be compatible with the drone. Sweet! Now I can get a drone, (which is a sick value pack by it self,) not need to buy another GoPro, and not need to buy the Mavic, Spark or whatever. Well, no, I can't. I will still buy from GoPro, but not their drone.
