Filmotechnic offers various types of professional gyroscopic equipment to get that perfect shot
Filmotechnic Remote Systems is market leader in providing gyroscopic equipment such as the U-crane Dynamic (formerly known as the Russian Arm mini) and the newest generation of Flight Heads (all sizes). We also provide the Scissor Mini and the Buggy Polaris with a U-crane Dynamic on top. Coming soon in Europe: the U-Crane.
The U-crane Dynamic is the next generation of the Russian Arm Mini. Rigged on top of a powerful Porsche Macan and using a lighter arm than the standard U-crane it provides you with high-level dynamic shots without compromises.
The U-crane does not use counter weights, so it is much smaller, lower, lighter and thus more versatile and agile than any other standard arm. It allows you to shoot under low bridges, in tunnels, in buildings and on narrow alley ways. Race tracks, curvy mountain roads and narrow streets are its favorite playgrounds. The U-crane Dynamic loves high-speed car chases !
The Scissor Mini Crane is perfect on camera dollies to get a wide range of shots. It can be paired with a Flight Head Mini 4 to deliver the most smooth images. The Scissor Mini is the perfect crane to reach difficult, crowded or small locations like balconies or tight stages; it gets where no other rig can get.
The U Crane, with its boom length that goes from 4.5 to 20.5 feet, is one of the most versatile cranes we have to offer at FRS. It can be mounted in any of our camera cars, as well as any car to shoot itself and get the perfect action movie shot. It can be used in studios and in almost every location possible thanks to its small size.
BUGGY POLARIS WITH U-crane DYNAMIC
FRS Buggy Polaris, with its U-crane Dynamic mounted on top, is the perfect vehicle to get dirty. It can ride through every ground: fields, mountains, beaches, forest, muddy and rocky terrains; it can’t be stopped. And thanks to U-crane Dynamic and FH mini, it gets an array of shots where no other equipment can go!
FRS also offers Cablecam solutions for 1D, 2D or 3 Dimensions to work with the latest Flighthead Mini 4 with drift-free motion control for recordable moves. Great for VFX.
