The Digital Juice FlexTrac & Wheel System for Orbit Dolly will turn your highly-configurable Digital Juice Orbit Dolly into a greatly more configurable 20 foot Dolly and Tracking system.
The main components are a 50 ft track and three specially-designed wheels for the track. The track -- a solid rubber cord -- is flexible, but is made of durable rubber that comes to a reliable weight of 31 lbs and that supports a weight capacity of 300 lbs. The wheels are no less reliable.
The system is simple: lay down the 50 foot track, replace the wheels of the Orbit Dolly with the three wheels, and dolly away -- in straight lines, in curves, in circles, or in various combinations. The track is 50 feet but has to be looped to create two rails, so it comes to about a 20 foot tracking system. You can, however, optionally purchase a second track and without looping create two rails that stretch for 50 whole feet, from one room into another, from indoors to out, or whatever your shot requires.
Two of the wheels feature a fixed swivel and the third a pivoting one. The fixed wheels go on one rail of the track to keep the Dolly steady, and the pivoting wheel lets you change direction, such as to track around corners. Three included tie-down knobs attach the wheels to the Orbit Dolly (and that's as far as using tools goes). The Orbit Dolly is, of course, sold separately.
