Hi Elliot. Thanks mate.
I don't think we will have to wait too long to do a wind test in this country.

You have PM.

Plenty to do before its finished, but we are getting there.



Cross slide. It makes balancing very easy.

Does it slide up and down as well to get COG with camera pointing straight down?

It looks like it does from the last picture.

Very nice. can't wait to see it in action.

How much does the gimbal weigh!?

Hi Elliot.
Yes, the tilt has sliding mechs on each side to give up and down. The gimbal is so easy to adjust for balance all round.

The gimbal in the above pic weighs in at 960grams (without camera). That's without the electronics and pan motor. I think the AUW will be reasonable for the size of camera that it has to carry.

We got a bit more work done yesterday.
