The Black arm is a 3-axis dampening system with a additional vibration mount for stabilizing roll and tilt errors as well as vertical motion and vibrations. The Black arm is a hardmount system made for gimbals that you want to mount on vehicles such as cars, ATVs, boats, snowmobiles etc.FLEXIBLE ADJUSTMENTS
The Black arm comes in two versions. The Black arm Standard is adjusted to work for gimbals and cameras with weight range between 5-13kg. The Black arm Complete is for people working with higher loads and carries between 5-32kg. Of course you have the option to upgrade the Standard version into a Complete. The damping action of all axis, vertical, Tilt, and roll is made with specially made actuator hydraulic dampers that are fully adjustable with a turn of a knob in 22 different damping forces, meaning that no matter what load you a applying on the Black arm, or what kind of action is required, the system is fully adjustable for the best possible damping and lifting capacity.
The Black arm Complete is for people working with higher loads and carries between 11 - 70.5 lb. (5-32kg) and is compatible with popular gimbal systems (Freefly MoVI, DJI Ronin, etc.).
