Will the focus/zoom motors from the Crane 3 lab work with the 3s?
Asked by: jack
Yes, but the motor function cannot be interchanged. The Lite motor controls the focus and the Max the zoom (the zoom can only be activated with the Smartsling handle or with the transmount). Also, if you do not have the Smarsling handle, you cannot access the settings of the Lite motor, leaving the possibility of using it correctly in the 3S-E pack disabled. I hope they fix this error and it can be configured from the app.

Can I use a standard V mount battery instead of the pro battery to power the gimbal and get the extra torque?
Asked by: Jordan
To power the Zhiyun CRANE 3S Handheld Stabilizer off of a standard V-Mount battery, a D-Tap to USB-C cable such as the Kondor Blue D-Tap to USB-C Power Delivery Cable for Mirrorless Cameras (16", Raven Black), BH #KODTUSBC16BK, would be needed.

What accessories would I need to fly this on an Easyrig, specifically the Flycam Flowline?
Asked by: Geoffrey
An EasyRig just would not be the right option for this gimbal. The Thanos would be a much better option. https://bhpho.to/3rcc2H8
