FREEFLY MōVI XL 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer

The FREEFLY MōVI XL 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer supports cameras and accessories weighing up to 50 pounds, so it is designed to be mounted on a remote head, jib or other support gear to create smooth cinematic moving shots. It uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll.

The FREEFLY MōVI XL is suitable for professional cinema cameras and lenses and compatible with both the Mimic and MōVI Controller systems (not included), as well as select Futaba and Spektrum transmitters. As with sled-style stabilizers, the camera should be balanced on the MōVI to ensure best performance. Once balanced, the MōVI pairs over Wi-Fi to an iOS, Android, or Windows app to finalize the configuration process.

Supported Cameras

The MōVI XL is designed to support payloads up to 50 pounds, making it suitable for professional cinema cameras with cinema lenses.

Remote Operation

The MōVI XL can be operated remotely either with a dedicated controller or by using the Mimic controller (neither controller is included and must be sourced separately). The MōVI XL is compatible as well with most Spektrum and Futaba radios.

App

MōVI XL can be configured wirelessly via Bluetooth LE, from the MōVI XL app on a mobile device.

Hot Swapping Batteries

You can hot swap the batteries on the MōVI XL, but extreme care must be taken to avoid damage to the batteries, and to the operator.

Three Control Modes

  • Majestic Mode: For single-operator use. In this mode the gimbal provides stabilization without counteracting operator-directed camera movements. For example, you could set it in majestic to pan with a vehicle turning on streets or a jib with only one operator for example. This mode is especially useful when the MōVI XL is deployed on a moving vehicle.
  • Stabilized Mode: Assumes no operator input, compensating for all movement it detects. Ideal scenarios for this mode include when the gimbal is mounted to a car or shots where the camera is moving, but the camera angle remains fixed.
  • Slew Stabilized Mode: For dual-operator control. In this mode, an operator with a dedicated remote or RC transmitter controls pan, tilt, and roll independently of the support platform.

Freefly Configurator

The Freefly Configurator is a GUI that enables you to precisely adjust your MōVI XL via an iOS or Android device over Wi-Fi pairing.

Silent Drive

The motors driving the gimbal have been designed to operate as quietly as possible to ensure you will be able to record sound without picking up any unwanted noise.

Translation Compensation

Making hundreds of adjustments per second, the software works to counteract translation--the bobbing up and down effect while running--when tracking a moving subject moving at high speed.

Shot Recorder

Keeps a record of the camera position (where GPS is available), height, camera pan, tilt, and roll so that the shot can be recreated later or to help Visual Effects align the live action shot with other elements in a CG composite.

Third-Party Mounting

Using separately available mounting hardware, it is possible to mount the MōVI XL on cranes, jibs, ad remote heads.

Remote Firmware Updatable

You can upgrade the gimbal to new software features as they are released by Freefly yourself, without having to send the device in for a factory update.

Custom Direct Drive Motors

The MōVI XL system uses powerful motors that enable you to create smooth shots while on camera platforms moving at high speed.

User Adjustable "Shakey Cam"

Want an organic hand-held look? The MōVI provides variable noise filters that allow you to effectively dial in a custom amount of shake to help you achieve the effect you are after.

Additional Features

  • Custom designed, precisely calibrated sensors
  • Fully tool-less balancing
  • Second battery cage of holding a battery dedicated to powering accessories
  • Handles can be switch from low to high modes with flip of a lever

FLOWCINE Black Arm Complete Dampening System with Tranquilizer Mount & Pro Case

Capture super-stabilized gimbal shots from your car, ATV, boat, snowmobile, or other vehicle with the Black Arm Complete from FLOWCINE. Purely mechanical, this three-axis dampening and vibration-reduction system hard-mounts your gimbal-and-camera setup to your vehicle, stabilizing roll and tilt as well as vertical motion and vibration. The Black Arm's design incorporates a four-spring arm with fully adjustable actuator hydraulic dampers and a platform that levels the separately available gimbal. In addition, between the arm and the mounted gimbal there is an anti-vibration Tranquilizer mount capable of handling loads between 14.8 and 49.6 lb. Mounting the Black Arm is as simple as clamping it onto a standard 48-52mm speed rail.

The damping action of all three axes—vertical, tilt, and roll—is brought about by the hydraulic dampers. A 22-step knob enables you to precisely dial in the amount of damping you need for your shot. The Black Arm Complete ships with two dampers for each of the three axes. Also included is an extra-sturdy, wheeled all-black pro case with powder-coated metal corners, butterfly catches, and heavy-duty recessed handles.

FREEFLY MoVI XL to Mitchell Adapter

MoVI XL features a 6 bolt pattern allowing users to mount the gimbal to a variety of devices. The MoVI XL to Mitchell Adapter adapts the 6 bolt pattern to a standard Mitchell Mount. This can be used with or without the MoVI XL quick release. Freefly sets gimbals up to use the Quick Release system as it allows for much faster changeover than bolted or Mitchell mount.

Key Features

  • Adapts from MoVI XL Pan Mounting plate or quick release to Mitchell Mount
  • Standard Mitchell Mount thread
  • 6061-T6 black anodized lightweight aluminum design with brass nut
