    Hey guys,

    Has anyone tried shooting FPV style with the ALTA 8 and Movi Pro?

    I'm looking for a solution to have the gimbal pan with the yaw movement of the aircraft whilst giving control of the roll to the gimbal operator.

    It sort of works in hand held mode but I haven't found a perfect way to lock the direction of the gimbal to the front of the ALTA perfectly. Also the gimbal operator has no control over roll in this mode.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Cheers
    Jeff

    That's an interesting issue -- I don't know anyone who's done that. If you're using a MoVI Controller and you turn the pan rate to zero, might that work? (I'm away from the studio right now and cannot test this idea.)

    Cheers from Covfefe-Free Canada!
