Intro

Introduction

Glider for Ronin S2 & Expansion Base Kit

The Glider bundle for use with the Ronin S2 & Expansion Base Kit is a no-compromise 4th axis stabilizer built from the ground up for Ronin S2 Pro's to make your bumpy gimbal footage silky smooth!

The Glider bundle for use with the Ronin S2 & Expansion Base Kit gives you a Glider Pro 3 ready to attach your DJI Expansion Base Kit so you can:-

  1. Operate the control handle on the right side by replacing the existing right handle assembly.
  2. Utilizes the RS2 Expansion Base mount for a smaller overall footprint. 
  3. Powers the gimbal by moving the battery pack handle to the left side handle with the left power handle mount. Also uses the Lemo cable to route the power back to the Expansion Base. 

Also included in the bundled kit is the following:-

  • Base extender for use with the RS2 tripod so you can put it down between takes
  • Two mini ball heads for positioning gear such as a monitor and lighting
  • Two male to male 1/4-20's for the ball heads
  • A male cold shoe

As a stand-alone handheld 4th axis stabilizer it's now the new benchmark for others to aspire to and it's custom made to work with the Ronin S2 when used with the DJI Ronin Expansion Base Kit! The bundle also includes the gimbal base extender for using your mini tripod to put the rig down between takes.

Modular Design

Its modular design means the Glider RS2 can also be re-fitted with the ever-growing range of optional adaptors which means you'll have more ways to use your rig than ever before. 

You can add-on mounts for cars, bikes, body mounts, boats mount, you name it, you can mount it with our customisable mounts! The Ronin handles also have attachment points for mounting a Ready Rig for those long all-day shoots.

More Details

We improved on the best!

The design goal was to improve every aspect from the softest all the way to the craziest filming movements.

  • To start, we redesigned the fluid damping to go from zero damping to an even higher level of damping than the original for those extreme shots
  • We added more stainless steel bearings to make it glide even softer
  • We made it stronger to take those heavier gimbals 
  • We’ve refined the geometry to take you from firm suspension all the way to the softest and most iso-elastic suspension. Think of it like going from an off-roader to a luxury car suspension.
  • There are so many little things that add up to a much better experience such as attachment points for adding field monitors and other gear. Simply offsetting the handles so that the rig leans ever so slightly forward makes a big difference. This prevents rigs from wobbling forward and aft which can translate into unwanted vertical bouncing.

     

The Glider Pro 3 takes a bit more time to master than the Pro 2 did but once you come up to speed you’ll be able to achieve footage that is at least 20% smoother than the Pro 2 model. Once you master it you can even achieve footage that looks like it’s shot on rails!

Payload Springs

The Glider Pro 3 uses our own custom made springs made out of the finest spring steel (music wire) to give the smoothest range of motion.

The Glider Pro 3 Duo 4th axis stabilizer springs suit payloads from 700g to 9kg (1.5 to 20 pounds) with an iso-elastic range from 0.7kg to 6kg (1.5 to 13 pounds). For optimum performance, we recommend using payloads between 1kg and 6kg (2 to 13 pounds).

The payload weight is worked out by adding all your equipment that is mounted to the centre of the stabilizer (camera, gimbal etc). If you mount say your field monitor and/or audio off the handles then that doesn't count towards the payload.

    A Compact  Powerhouse

    I think the huge plus for me is that I can take everything I need for a shoot; lights, audio recorder and field monitor and it all fits in a backpack so there’s no need for an assistant. But the real biggie is that you’ll be hard-pressed to see the difference between footage shot on the new Glider Pro 3 rig and the footage shot on a system totalling many thousands.

    Some other important features;-

    • It’s built extra tough for the rigours of Pro use 
    • It allows you to use your gimbals mini tripod so you can rest your arms between takes
    • It’s adaptable with an ever-growing ecosystem of add ons for individualizing your rig
    • It’s been designed to be quiet so your audio won’t be ruined by the creaks and squeaks that those cheap Z stabilizers have.
    • And you don’t need a 10-pound padded shipping case to move it around. It all fits with heaps of room to spare in a backpack!
    • You can leave the tools at home with virtually tool-less adjustments in only seconds, not minutes
    • Pros can attach everything they need to your rig with multiple attachment points
    • A wide range of payloads
    • Dual independent adjustable fluid damping - from hard action to soft shots
    • Dual independent load adjusters to adapt to your rig
    • Adjust in seconds from high shot to upright to mid-height to low (briefcase) mode with an under-slung gimbal
    • Get buttery smooth footage with ease
    • Built super tough from lightweight engineering polymers - Only 1.65kg (3.6 pounds)
    • Comes fully assembled

    "I just wanted to send you an email to say a big thank you"..."I wanted to share how ‘wowed’ I am!   Not only are your products brilliant and ridiculously good value but I am so knocked out by the business you have created and the way technology has enabled you to do what you do.   I suppose I just wanted to say how brilliant it feels as a customer to be part of what you are doing; you really are inspiring"
