    Hey everyone,

    With a new MoVI bound to be in the works, what features, updates or additions would you like to see. Here’s my wishlist:

    -Mimic Pro 2 has no pan drift (drift could be eliminated by giving the brushless motors a way of identifying their position relative to where they are in their rotation. So if the accelerometers and satellites say 0 movement then if the brushless motors mark is at 0 degrees and changes to 1 degree it knows it’s moving and stops)
    -Mimic Pro has more 1/4-20 mounts on it
    -Integrated FIZ can be bound with third party wireless follow focus transmitting knobs
    -beefier batteries. Maybe call them MP50’s
    -removable battery module to be able to control power away from gimbal or power camera or other accessories if the gimbal isn’t needed. This module should have 1/4-20 and rod options for it
    -Quad/6-way Charger
    -Battery life indicator on all pages of the gimbal GUI
    -indicator shows motors paused on GUI
    -P-Taps can handle more power being drawn from them
    -P-Taps
    -push pan and push tilt (like smooth lock but the ability to control pan and tilt after manually forcing the gimbal to the desired angle)
    -adjustable tilt offsets
    -the return of roll offset (like on the M10 and M15)
    -revised “toad in the hole” attachment system (like the dovetail system on the MoVI XL) so gimbal doesn’t fall straight down if the “toad in the hole” system fails
    -contacts on the revised attachment system so power and data can be communicated from the ring to the gimbal and vice-versa to eliminate cables
    -lockable axis like on the MoVI XL
    -independently lockable axis while being able to control other axis
    -ring comes with attachment system at the top and bottom so shooting in inverted mode is easier
    -the ring can be broken down into 2 parts (like a competitor who’s name I won’t say but rhymes with Schmonin Schtoo)
    -ring feet can be swivel out of the way or to the other side
    -Smaller MoVI Controller with large joystick and lots of 1/4-20’s on it

    Please feel free to add to this list. I’m sure FreeFly would love to hear from you also!

    The ability to put on bigger camera packages/lenses without counter weights and stronger motors so the gimbal can pan/tilt/roll faster without overshoot. Which would also allow for a slight improper balance to be negated by motor strength.

    I'd love to see options for different undustry standard quick release plate systems built in, like ,Manfrotto 501 series, Arca Swiss, etc. It a shame to have to screw the quick release system on top of the existing one as we limit the space for the camera
