COMING IN OCTOBER 2017…
The Mantis Plus takes the original Mantis chassis and upgrades the control system to our all new professional control system. It uses the same RC based chassis and the same range of stabilisers as the original, but the new motor control system and professional hand controller adds a new level of highly refined and tuneable control.
At the heart of the new control system is the “Master”. This all new hand controller has been designed from the ground up to give the operator a professional interface that is tailored to camera movement. It gives the operator fine tuneable control over maximum speed, acceleration, deceleration, and steering rates, meaning you can dial in the specific type of movement you want. This makes creating and repeating the same movement easier than ever before as you are less reliant on experience and muscle memory to finesse your movements time and time again on set.
Not only that but is upgrades the radio link technology to a radio system more commonly found in professional camera equipment. This gives users improved radio link stability in challenging environments and increased range.
The Master comes in an ergonomic hand held package that uses common V-Lock batteries for power enabling us to directly mount (1/4” mounting holes) and power a monitor and RF video receiver to the controller for first person view and control from a small camera (GoPro or similar) mounted on the front of the chassis.
The Mantis 360° PLUS kit contains all the same items as the original kit, but with the addition of the new control system pre-installed. A special upgrade is available now for anyone purchasing the current system before the new system is available. CLICK HERE for full details.
