Default Please help me figure out this gimbal!!

First off let me say I have no idea what I'm doing.

Ok now that that's out of the way, I purchased this gimbal: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...al_Black_.html

I have never used, set up, or owned a gimbal before. I am having a hell of a time figuring this out mostly because A: I don't know what any of this means, B: all the instructions are in Chinese, C: I'm not sure if I'm even using the right software.

I read the discussion on that page about this gimbal and it seems it is rather confusing on how to get this to work. I managed to download the GUI (no idea what that even means) and open the program. When I connect the gimbal to the computer I get nothing (seems to be a common problem). Apparently there is a driver or something you have to download in order to get the Serial-COM port (again no idea what that is) to work. I've read things about using a 64 bit or 32 bit driver (my Win10 machine is a 64 bit) so I think I downloaded the correct driver however after trying to install it multiple times I'm still not getting anything. I followed the directions I found from here: http://www.ifamilysoftware.com/news37.html

For the love of my sanity can someone please point me in a direction here, or even just explain what some of this jargon means?!? I hope I'm not crying out to an empty room here and someone can help.....PLEASE!?!?

Nevermind. Crashed and just destroyed $300 worth of equipment. Not the hobby for me.
