This is a steadicam style airframe. The original concept from *ECILOP*. However, it made some changes and improvements to make it different...

This frame made out of Full Carbon Fiber with fold-able arm, specially designed for Professional Aerial Filming, not only in HEXA mode, it can be adjustable to X4, X8 , Y4, Y6 ,+6 ,+12 flying mode as well.

PS: For those who want to order, you can use below information. The creator decided to hold back the distributorship to his another friend in his same province. Therefore, I am not the person in-charge of this model from now. Please respect his decision. Thread will keep move on for discussing.

Looks pretty cool, I was trying to see if I could rig one of these Lensse Midpro Steady Camera Stabilizers to my DJI F550 but your thing looks way nicer.

Seems great, good work!

I hope your frame/gimbal works fine and closely follow your work. What electronic do you use for the test?

What is required for the steadycam? Gyros like the Ecilop?

Looks promising. What sized cameras is it designed for?

Looks very promising, i just hope cost is not too high since this is just design improvement from the ecilop easy.

I have the Ecliop and love it. This setup looks amazing, but a couple of things to note:

1- Please make sure the landing gear is very strong and rigged. Nothing worse than flimsy plastic, and with this type of setup if it fails there will be a lot of expensive damage. Its worth the extra weight.
2- Make sure the there is a wide range of movement for the battery holder. The Ecilop is limited here.
3- Please use good quality bearings on the steady cam mechanics, and make it so that they can be interchanged regularly,
4- Pan axis would be a welcome addition!
5- If you are using a spring system to control the axis's then it needs to work in a way that it does not load up the servo gears to one side, like the ecilop does. I can see myself needing new gear sets regularly with this setup..

Look forward to finding out more on this hex!
