Flight Head Apex

 

The Flight Head Apex is a more compact design to the traditional form of Gyro Stabilised Flight Head from Filmotechnic and yet it can still accommodate a massive 70kg payload.

Due to its smaller design and impressive stabilisation performance you can achieve unusual shooting angles while ensuring very stable images in a restricted set space.

This head works really well on the Russian Arm, as well as on other tracking vehicle platforms, which require super stable shots.

It can be used on any full size camera crane, jib arm, tracking vehicle, dolly or cablecam that is rated to take the weight.

We have worked exclusively with Filmotechnic and Brownian Motion to stabilise their fantastic 6 Camera Array for a huge background plates in a single pass. Check their rigs out here for your next VFX shoot.

The Flight Head Apex can be controlled by hand-wheels, joystick or optional pan-bar and it can be rigged in under or overslung configuration.
