Helix Jr. is the super light weight and more compact version of the Letus Helix. with a payload of 12 lbs, the Helix Jr. is a perfect gimbal for wedding, event and doccumentary cinematography. Intuitive to use, eye level set up allows user to use the set up all day without killing one's back. Using the same controller board as the regular Helix, one can be assured that the Helix Jr. will have the same quality of the regular Helix which has been used in many reputable production sets in since it's been shipping. Combine the optical center with a joystick and you can create a unique dutch rolling shot that will give another dimension to your product. The sky is your limit in what you can do with the Helix Jr.... Wait!!! but the sky is NOT the limit. In under 3 minutes, you can convert the Helix Jr. from handheld mode into aerial mode and fly into that horizon.
The Helix Jr. comes with a 2600 mAh Li-ion battery and charger. Hard custom foam cut carrying case is optional.

My Helix Jr, which I am flying my Scarlet-X on has been a fantastic addition to my arsenal. It's easy to balance and can get super creative shots. Even though this thing is not built for cameras quite as heavy as the Scarlet, it still works very well. Waiting on the arrival of a Raven, which will undoubtedly be even lighter and better on the Helix Jr. This is a great stabilizer for the price and if you ever have any questions, their team will go out of their way to help.
Thanks a bunch for the great product and tech support guys!

so far I am loving this thing! I'm really surprised at just how smooth the images are, I haven't needed to use post stabilization yet! And the set up is pretty fast.. I've been recommending the helix to all my film friends! Such a quick way to step up production value on projects!

I have been using the Letus Helix Jr for about a week now and found it to be a great addition to my kit.
I previously owned a DJI Ronin, but sold it due to the weight. I simply could not operate the Ronin all day without serious pain in my arms.
The unique top roll axis and suitcase mode make this gimbal easy to operate, even if you never touched a steadicam or electronic stabilizer your entire career. It is very easy to get super smooth shots with very little setup time using the Jr.
The Letus Helix Jr is perfect for me as a B camera shooting Broll alongside a Red or Sony f55.
Today's small cameras like the Sony a7s and Panny GH4 cut well with expensive A camera systems. This will only get better as blackmagic, sony, canon and Panasonic make upgrades to their tiny camera lines.
Buy the Helix Jr. You will be happy you did!
