Varizoom's AviatorMX Stabilizer System builds on the success of its predecessor, the Aviator, by improving its dual arm to allow greater weight support--up to 18 lbs versus the Aviator's 15 lbs. Intended for the latest light DV and film cameras, the AviatorMX provides features found in larger, heavier, and more expensive systems. This compact, precision unit is the perfect fit for independent and lower-budget productions. Includes a proprietary Lithium-Ion battery with an LED capacity indicator (optional mounts also available).

MX Generation Dual Arm
Taking the highly successful Aviator to the next level, the MX Generation arm incorporates new, super-rigid arm sections with improved linkages and spring assemblies, allowing for heavier loads and improved overall stability.
Improved Form-Fit Vest
The improved vest includes a contoured chest pad, torso-gripping 4-point buckle system, and height-adjustable chest plate. This lightweight, cool vest hugs and supports the upper body, making it possible to fly heavy cameras for extended periods
No Tools Required for Adjustment
The AviatorMX sled has been streamlined so that all necessary balance adjustments can be made quickly and easily. The comfortable knurled grip can be twisted to adjust gimbal position and provides precise control over the sled.
FlowTech Gimbal
Classic design has been improved with a contoured, ergonomically-sloped extension grip for improved handling and the ability to add a zoom control. A precision 3-axis gimbal delivers consistent fluid motion with six sets of bearings. The lightweight, rugged gimbal ties the system together effortlessly.
MX Generation Trim Adjuster
One of the most significant upgrades is the MX Trim Adjuster, which allows the operator to compensate for unwanted arm tilt by leveling the arm at the vest mount, thereby offering improved comfort and control. Other improvements include a faster, more comfortable tension adjustment, better mechanical control, and superior cosmetics.
Balance and Design
With an unmatched balance of design and capability, the Aviator MX is the final word in stabilizer systems up to 18 lbs (8.16kg).
Power, Vision, Balance
At the base of the sled, a 7" 16:9 NTSC/PAL color monitor serves as a large external viewfinder. The monitor and batteries serve as counterweight for vertical balance, and their positions can be adjusted for fine-tuning.
Precision Gear Drive Stage
Micro-adjustable gear drive stage enables extremely precise tuning of horizontal balance. Quick-release dovetail camera plate allows rapid setup and breakdown in the field.
Custom Rolling Case
A form-cut foam insert protects and secures the system components inside, while the wheeled case with telescoping handle ensures effortless transport. Padded carry pouches hold the toolkit, cables, monitor, and training DVD.
Training DVD
VariZoom stabilizers take some time to master, but the included training DVD takes you through the setup and operation step-by-step with a professional FlowCam operator.
