ikan FLY-X3-PLUS overview

  • 1Description

The FLY-X3-Plus from ikan is a motorized 3-axis powered gimbal designed to keep your smartphone level as well as isolate it from hand shake. It features a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that levels and anticipates the operator's movements for smooth footage. Between the included mounting adapters, you can attach small and large smartphones up to 3.6" wide, such as the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S5, as well as the GoPro HERO4 and HERO3 action cameras.

The FLY-X3 stabilizes footage shot with your smartphone although it is not designed to hold your smartphone perfectly still; rather it compensates for shake when moving and provides an organic-looking stabilized shot.

    ikan FLY-X3-PLUS reviews

    FLY-X3-Plus 3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer with GoPro Mount is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Gimbal is really good but the battery is very bad I purchased this Gimbal and I was very happy with it but I got to use it about 5 times. In total I only charged the battery 4 times since I have this device and now it doesn't hold the charge and the light indicator for the charge not even goes beyond the first light of the 4 that it has. it keeps blinking on the second light. It can be plugged in, charging for all day and it only shows one light and when I use the battery (only charged with two lights of 4) it works for about 5 minutes and then suddenly die completely. As I said the Gimbal is good but because of the battery issue this becomes useless

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding tool for camera smartphone film maker! I'm producing a documentary film and hate lugging my Nikon D750 or Panasonic AC-160 cameras around and have always struggled with stabilization. I have a tremor! The Ikan is simple to setup and enables me to capture great video with elegantly smooth moves and incredibly stable shooting. I used it this past weekend to capture footage and interviews at the DC Funk Parade in our nation's capitol. Those who noticed it, asked about it and decided I need that! Others just took for granted that my media pass coupled with the Ikan Fly made me a pro and treated me with the respect I need to shoot in crowds and get the content I need in close quarters and on the street. Tonight I'm capturing interviews and interactions at a social event. When I told the sponsors I wanted to bring my camera, they told me there was no room for a tripod, so the Ikan Fly is PERFECT. I'm also taking a Zoom H1with aux mic plugged in to get better sound from my subjects. Amazing value an tool for the professional and amateur shooter using a smartphone - in my case, the iPhone 6. When the iPhone 7 comes, I'll be there with my Ikan for even more and better video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I have used several stabilizers over the years including GlideCam, Steadicam and Feiyu. This FLY-X3-Plus design is superior in several ways. The interchangeable battery means you can swap out batteries in a few seconds. The gesture control lets you make smooth pan & tilt moves easily with one hand free. The unit is light weight & ruggedly built. It comes with a custom fitted storage case, battery and international charger. My unit came right out of the box pre-balanced for an iPhone 6. I just plugged in the battery and was shooting within seconds. I did not even have to adjust the counter weight. The unit seems to maintain a steady & level horizon. I am able to pan smoothly and perform slow tilt moves with ease. Battery life seems to be about 1.5 hours of continuous use. If you need longer shooting times I suggest picking up a spare battery. This is the best mini-stabilizer on the market. (In my opinion.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to set up for iPhone 6 plus and 6s plus I just put it on there and a little bit of moving the counter balance and had it balanced within 5 minutes. The movement is smooth and this opens up a lot of possibilities and such a low price point. I haven't had any issues with it. I just wish there was a way I could put on my Robe Video Mic Me on my iPhone while using it but I can't as it interferes with one of the motors. So, you basically are limited to the iPhone microphone which will likely pick up some sound. This is pretty much a dual sound set up unless you're using it for home videos.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Background Noise from Motors I use it with the GoPro mount and also with the iPhone6, and besides the background noise coming from the gimbal motors it is great. The motor noise is quite loud, when filming and an external microphone is needed, if you want to avoid that problem. I see video from other gimbals on youtube, and they don't seem have to have that problem. Therefore i would not buy it again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working in less than a year I bought the iKan Fly X3 Plus almost 18 months ago. Before the first year was up the unit stopped working. I called support and they told me the battery needed to be replaced. I sent the battery back to them. It took six weeks to get a new battery and when I got it, the X3 still didn't work. I called them again and told them the unit still didn't work. They gave me another RMA and said to send back everything but the battery. I did. Three months later I got it back. I put the battery in and it didn't work. I will never buy an iKan product again. Unreliable product and terrible customer support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and efficient Perfect as a small business or familiar tool. It's smooth and very easy to use. After just a little practice you get a grip on how to balance it properly. The only con: A tiny screw that holds the counterweight can be easily lost. So be careful with that one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoooooth Shots with my iPhone 6S+ First thing you'll notice: a very well-made, precision product. Pretty easy to set up and get started with, too. There's a little counter-balance for larger devices like the iPhone 6S+, and it really works well. Might just get rid of that old vest/arm/stabilizer and start shooting motion shots with this baby! What with the video quality of the iPhone and how well this gimbal works, you can get some amazingly useful shots with this combo. Comes in a nice case, too, with space for an extra battery (good idea, but the battery seems to last a very long time.) Very pleased with this purchase!
