The FLY-X3-PLUS Gimbal Stabilizer from Ikan turns your mobile phone or GoPro camera into a powerful image capture tool, shooting fluid professional video and eliminating shaky camera moves. The unique 3-axis brushless motor gyro system uses sophisticated software to stabilize your smartphone or GoPro, and makes pans, tilts and even walking shots appear to “fly.” Complicated steady rigs are difficult to balance but the FLY-X3-PLUS is easy to set up and operate. Simply place your smartphone in the cradle with your lens to the left, then level the FLY-X3-PLUS and turn on. The motors will level within a few seconds, and you’re ready to shoot.

For a better handheld solution for the GoPro Hero 3 & 4, use a GoPro mount (FX3P-GPRO, included accessory). The mount encloses the GoPro while allowing easy access to all buttons and quick-flip access to the battery. The GoPro mount is custom-fit for utilizing the GoPro on the FLY-X3-PLUS. To “fly” the GoPro, use the included hex key to remove the smartphone cradle, and lock and refasten the GoPro frame. Capture longer takes with the Gesture Control System. Initiate Gesture Control by tilting and panning the handle, and the camera will follow these movements smoothly.

The 3-axis gimbal stabilizer system enables smooth and fluid shots.
