  1. #1 Best gimbal for Weapon 
    Hi there, just wondering what system works well with Red Weapon / Epic W for gimbal work.
    I am looking at the Letus Helix, Movi Pro and Dji Ronin.
    Thanks very much.

    I would check out Letus Helix for sure. They have a great product, super customer service and a lot of knowledge. Call GT Le and tell her I sent you!

    I suggest you try the Letus Helix Pro. Great product and easy to use and most important fantastic customer service.

    Movi Pro has been working great for me.. I run everything off the Movi Pro batteries - Since you can hot swap it makes for a pretty clean process(2 batteries - 1 hr of filming).. I also use the ready Rig a lot since that guy gets heavy quick...

    Ok I may take some heat but I have to say after using just about everything out there the ACR Beast, formerly known as B-Steady 4 does a pretty good job with a basic setup. I was one of the Group Buys and over the few years of waiting for the rig I used a lot of other gimbals and I have to say that having a UI on the back of the rig and being able to fix issues on the fly really makes this uint a valuable production tool. And the company seems to be getting things together a little more now days..
