Product description

Whether handheld or mounted to adventuring equipment, the Pilotfly Action-1 motorized gimbal stabilizer will yield sharper, smoother footage from your Sony Action Camera. Three brushless motors with built-in encoders compensate for sudden vibrations and movement that would cause unpleasant artifacting in your video. The chassis itself is made from CNC-machined aluminum and has a 2-prong joint which is compatible with GoPro standard mounts. This connection enables the gimbal to stabilize vehicle shots, bike shots, and other shots in high-movement scenarios. Standard 1/4"-20 threaded equipment like extension poles can be attached to the base of the handle for expanded composition options.
