    Ok...so just had a lengthy conversation with Tilta. So originally an extra battery was apparently not going to be included (meaning only 1 was going to be included) unless we reached 50 orders, then a second, free battery would be included. It was a mis-understanding, however, Tilta WILL now be including a second battery for free. If we hit the 50 tier, another battery won't be included as they are giving it early.

    Heres everything that is included (doesn't include second free battery)


    so even though your invoice may or not include everything in this image, it will all be in your shipment. And for those of you who are ordering extra batteries and saw that you were being barged full price, that will be adjusted and resent to you with the discount. There are power cables included which will enable you to power the Gravity with your brick battery as wel!

    Regarding the shipping - Titla is working hard on getting that number to he $300 flat rate for those of you who orders both there Gravity and the Armorman, however it's costing more than they had originally thought, which is why some of you are seeing a slight increase. They will let us know tomorrow if they can't get it dropped by $60. This is part of the reason why they are including that second free battery now...as a way to help offset the $60 increase.

    All quotes will be revised on or before Tuesday.

    Will keep you guys posted.

    Thanks for being on top of all this Chris.

    What kind of power cable is it that allows us to use our bricks?

    Did you happen to get any clarification on the cases included for both the gimbal and armorman? I don't see one on the checklist image you posted here.

    Wasn't there supposed to be a quick release as well you mentioned for putting the gimbal on a job or other support pieces or did I misunderstand?

    No problem sir!

    With these included power cables:

    Here's the circuitry diagram for you too:
    Yes, the cases are included.

    If we hit 50, yea, they will include that Jib/Car Plate/Tripod adapter so you can disconnect the handlebars and mount the gimbal onto the unit of your choice on set.

    First of all, thanks Chris for all your work on this and thanks for putting this together! Sorry if this is slightly off topic, as its not regarding the group buy, but I am curious how the Gravity can be remotely operated (besides the Motion Control Module)? Having a great gimbal that performs well in high speeds, wind etc. is one thing - but at least from my experience those are all scenarios where it'd be remotely/dual operated (drone, car mount, heli etc). A simple RC controller (Futaba) would be the bare minimum - something similar to Freeflys MoVI controller or even the Alpha Wheels would be interesting down the line. The question is what is the communication and does the Gravity even have S-Bus compatibility?

    Thanks!

    Its a shame Tilta doesn't provide speed(24p) examples in their promo video.

    There's a couple places where it looks to have the classic micro judder that is all too common with gimbal use in my experience.
