Stabilizing your camera moves has become the name of the game, and the Letus with RC Module from Letus35 stabilizes cameras weighting up to 16 pounds in one axis with its brushless gimbal. The Helix is a powered stabilizer that features a modular design with a removable platform. The Helix balances around the optical center of your camera, providing less stress on the system and your camera's image stabilization system.

The flat bottom design of the Helix allows you to place it down on a flat surface without requiring a stand mount or other support. The 1-axis Helix is designed to stabilize your camera in the tilt axis and can be mounted to third party stabilizing systems if you wish. The bottom of the Helix features a dovetail plate that is compatible with an optional OConnor 1030 fluid head, and it features three 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes. Please note you will need to source power options separately.

This Helix comes with the RC module installed. The module provides control of the stabilizer's pan and tilt functions by a second operator. The RC module is a factory only installation option, so it is advantageous to have it installed when you first purchase your Helix. If you later choose to have the RC Module installed, you will have to send it back to Letus35 in Oregon for installation.

Note: The Helix is wired according to US standards. Any 3rd-party power accessories must be compatible.

The Helix is designed balance and stabilize around the optical center of your camera/lens combination. This allows you to do nodal point rolls, and as the image sensor movement is reduced significantly compared to off-center stabilizers, image stabilization is improved.
It has been tested to work with cameras as light as the Sony A7s, and works with cameras weighing up to 16 pounds.
Each axis platform of the system allows balance adjustment that reduces operating stress on the unit and the operator, and is indexed in millimeters allowing quick re-sets when switching between lenses.
Re-balancing the Helix after a lens changes is simply a matter of sliding a single axis forward or back. You can be back up and running without missing a beat.
The Helix system can be built up or torn down to accommodate your needs. Use one axis on top of an optional arm/vest type stabilizer for an auto-horizon solution.
The electronics are protected from reverse polarity, overheating, and over-current conditions.
The USB interface allows for configuration, control, and firmware upgrades.
This unit does not include a battery or charger, which you must source separately.
Optional RC Module and 2nd power box are available but must be installed by the factory, requiring the unit to be returned to Letus35 for service.
