    Hi guys,

    Well, I thought I'd share my latest project with you.

    The Story
    When I tried fitting my MoVi M5 to my Droidworx SkyJib (with extended legs) or XM frames, there simply wasn't enough clearance between the ground and the bottom of the gimbal. So, I decided to make some stilettos. :eek:) I hope you like the name I've given them! Here are photos of version 2, 3 and 4.

    This is what they look like fitted... look carefully or you might miss the connection!

    and this is how much longer the legs become...

    I do need a few extra orange spacers now, any volunteers?

    and now for the finished look...

    I've made the stilettos out of 2mm carbon which is stronger than the 1.6mm carbon that the legs were originally made of.

    I've also designed my own quick release mechanism, so that the gimbal can also be used as a hand held gimbal. I'll post about this later when I've had a chance to take some photos.

    Hope you enjoyed! :eek:)
