3 Axis Brushless GIMBAL system & Steadicam for Pro Users ARDUCOPTER, Hoverfly, CINESTAR,

Hello,

I like to announce THE NEW  3 Axis, brushless Gimbal, 4mm thick plates, 25mm tube, 3k Carbon fiber, & steadycam all in one, to the market. Before the well known established companies like Hoverfly & CINESTAR, that is affordable for professional enthusiast.  We have produced with 4mm thick CF new style joints. This product transforms, comes in handheld & Copter configurations. We supply all the parts for attaching to copter with landing gear . Or if you choose you can use it as a steadicam. 

Currently there are no 3-axis brushless controllers on the market . There are plans in the works, but or best bet is the open source gimbal members of this community are working on. This help things along so we do not need to use 2 brushless controllers at the same time to achieve 3-axis controle, we would have beaten the big commercial  guy to market. Just like to say keep up the good work on innovating new hardware solutions.

Looks really good,well done.

How much will they be?

Comment by John Moore on June 5, 2013 at 12:28pm

Why is the version with motors and controller $1000 more than the frame only? The electronics dont cost nearly that much and the Cinestar parts should be optional.

How do you compensate for linear up-/down-movements? That video is remarkable steady considering that you weren't biking on a perfect pavement.

Hello,

I am a little skeptical on this units ability to handle a DSLR like a Canon 5D with a larger size/weight. Looks like a sexy rip off. The video looks like it was using a lightweight point and shoot or GoPro. Show me a video in 3rd person of the gimbal handling the weight of a camera like this and I'll feel better. Based on the design, particularly on the pan axis, I can't see how this will handle a DSLR. I would want to also see the camera footage to make sure that it isn't cogging.

I have a feeling alot of people will jump on this and be really disappointed. Also, I'm curious what control boards you are using because I see you have a 100 in stock, but there is no way you got access to 100 boards from the preferred manufacturer. I'd be second guessing the control board quality and functionality as well.

Lastly, its very similar to the MOVI. Did you have to go as far as calling it the Movix?

Hello this is just a 3-axis brushless gimbal a professional one with handlebars.

hoverfly did not invent it! they just decide to make a product & give it a name and charge too much! it is impresiv how marketing pulls in the un enlightened.  The cost is because of the 3mm thick carbon fiber. for now there is no other on the market. If you wanted to get picky you could use DJI brushless controller. Yes I do have access to good amount of open source brushless controllers I am sell for the lowest price on the web.   to it will carry 20lb ! just because Sum FILM Snobs put a fancy name on it does not make it a product real here it is. the controler is open source!

Thanks for sharing. Certainly impressive (along with other 3 axis posted recently) and increases shot quality at a much lower price compared to a Steadicam. But IMO it isn't a Steadicam. The main feature of the Steadicam system is demonstrated by having the operator jump up and down but the camera remains stationary. You can't do that with a 3 axis rig. Is this cinema quality? I don't think so. X, Y, Z movement isn't smooth. Post process could smooth that out I guess. Stunning step forward? Oh yea!

I wonder how well combining the Steadicam arm and a gimbal like this would work. I bet it would look amazing.
