    Hey M15 owners,

    Here is a Mod I've done to my M15 similar to Movi Pro powering.

    The Battery brackets can be adjusted fore & aft for balance.

    Batteries are hot swappable dual V-Lock or you can make it AB mount.

    There's also a voltage meter readout, Dtap / Ptap outlets, Lemo connectors conversion & direct camera power to the cage for camera & accessories.

    I'm running the IDX endure duo slim 73w batteries which work well and are light weight or you could use smaller ones like the new 43w RED batts.

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Did you do any documenting of the process? Really interesting.

    Nice work, we have done something very similar with our two M15s, although not the vlock plates, I like it.
    How heavy is your usual payload?
    Have you tried this setup in the sitting position? Not hanging from the hand grips.

    I've thought about adding vlocks like yours but worried we wouldn't get enough clearance (we use it in the sitting position) and that we'd be getting towards the weight limit. The Movi handles very sluggish when near it's payload limit.

    Hi LeoBund.

    Contact Trevor Faber from www.griptech.net.au

    He's the one who made these up for me.

    All the best,

    Pete
