    What is the best combo to control the Canon 5D mark iii during flight.

    I have the cinestar 3 axis gimbal with radian stabilizers.
    Also on FPV-monitor from which I can see the video.

    There is a need to focus the camera sometimes during flight again, and also I'm now wasting a lot of minutes from record (example take off, landing)

    I have been looking for this VP systems; http://vp-systems.eu/camremote.html
    This is also a Finnish product, so would be easy to handle with difficulties.

    This could be a other control, like the VP-systems solution, or it could be coded to my Graupner MX-12 controller.
    Best regards,
    Mikko

    Mikko,
    I've been using this for years without a problem. http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/gentled/shutterplus.htm (Rec and Photo)
    For the focus questions I wouldn't think about this now as you are still using Radians. Don't understand me wrong, I do have a bird with Radians also but I only use it for still nowadays, all filming I do is with a HL with a MoVI. So my recommendation is: before you get a follow focus or something like this for focus upgrade to a Brushless Gimbal like the MoVI. It's better to have a stable shot without deep of field than a great deep of field shop shacking a lot ;)

    Cheers,
