I have taken a ton of BIF with this combo, and always find handheld is the way to go! Its way easier and natural to track the bird..

Wow...   those are great!   In a way its a statistics game.   Even with .5% keepers, all you need is 200 shots.

I have tried a monopod with gimbal and it seems to only work for launch shots but after that I lose the bird..
