    Hey friends! I just wanted to show you this cool new thing I have been working on to get more consistent shots. 84758419_2519254871623455_4592752316527935488_n.jpg 85191177_203432457510035_3412550932003553280_n.jpg

    It uses power taken from (soon to be four) movi pro batteries at the bottom linked through a super light 3d printed battery cover at the top! With this set up I can run the movi for at least 3 hours without changing anything. All together it only weights about 53lbs

    Heres a wonderful 720p shot we got the other day! Hope you like it! zero post stabilization.



    Also, if you guys want a great 3d printed mattebox that wights ~200grams, here you go!

    Are you planning to incorporate a Thumb controller for Tilt? Also, are you using a really small (or zero?) Pan Window in your Majestic settings?

    Good questions! My plan (eventualy) is to get a thumb controller, however i'm debating on making one vs buying one. I know that Aerial Pixel sells one (https://aerialpixels.com/shop/gimbals/movi-series/movi-pro/movi-pro-joystick-controller/) and redrock Micro sells one as well, However the problem with aerialpixels, is that I believe you need the mimic and I need that so my AC and pull for me, and the Micro is expensive! So: What im going to do is get a Sbus Recever and a Sbus transmitter and DIY my own! I think I can spend less then ~20 on it, however if you know of a wired Sbus joystick I would love that as well! less wires is better, but so is control!

    And my pan is at next to zero! there's a little pan help because im not perfect!
