Product Description

The Helix Mg is the lighter version of the award-winning Helix jr. By using Magnesium alloy, the Helix Mg is 1.5 lbs lighter than the standard Aluminum version. 

What are the benefits of the encoders?

  • Preventing motors from losing their position (skipping steps) when bumped or moved too aggressively
  • Dramatically increasing battery life (up to 5 times longer life!)
  • Increasing torque, giving you the extra strength needed for more aggressive panning motions
  • Adding the ability to physically adjust the camera’s position by hand and have the gimbal maintain this position
  • Increases the precision of stabilization

  1. Best gimbal I owned

    Posted by Alberto G on 2nd Feb 2016

    I love the Helix. I think it is the smartest gimbal on the market. I owned and used few others. The Helix has no competition to me.
    The simple fact that you hold the camera at the same level (or higher) of your hands makes working with it so much more natural and less tiring compared to the upside down style of most of the others. Then you can put it down anywhere, rest, reassess, shoot again. It is the smartest solution around. It works great on any camera. I used it with minimal sony a7s setup, and I use it regularly with the RED. I love it.
