Product description

  • PILOTFLY (PFY) - Maverick - Tutorial 2- Function Introduction
The PFY Maverick 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer Essential Kit provides the Maverick gimbal with the key accessories needed to operate it and begin using it out of the box. Leaving out the follow focus accessories normally included with the Maverick, the Essential Kit makes the gimbal available at a more accessible price point. And the follow focus accessories can be incorporated at a later time if you'd like.

In follow-up to their advanced H2-45 and Adventurer gimbals, Pilotfly GmbH has designed the Maverick, under the brand name PFY, with a much higher 9 lb weight capacity, while making it one of the lightest gimbals in its class at only 2.2 lb with a battery included.

Pilotfly was one of the first to adopt an angled motor arm in their previous gimbals to provide a clear view of the camera's LCD, and that's still the case with the Maverick. Other new features include increased motion accuracy through full 360° rotation on all three axes thanks to new 12-bit digital position encoders on each axis.

Onboard controls include a high-precision 5-way joystick, an ergonomic zoom rocker, a record start/stop button, and a photo capture button. There's also an OLED screen on the handle. To change the gimbal's follow mode speed or joystick parameters you no longer need to use a software but rather just use the onboard controls and OLED screen on the fly.

A water-repellent backpack is included that fits the Maverick with the included accessories. The backpack also provides room for the optional follow focus accessories that you might want to add later.
