CineMover

FID CineMover is a RC Camera Car, also called Gimbal Car or Buggy Cam, our first utility product. It’s designed specially for professional filmmaker. CineMover is capable of providing a dynamic camera low-angle and perfect for chase, follow and side profile shooting.

RC Gimbal Car

FID never dreamed of making a Gimbal Car until a friend introduced this idea. Before that FID has been doing radial controlled cars for many years and accumulated a lot of experiences. This is our scope. So in early 2019 we got down to it. We considered different designs, and made 4 prototypes before deciding on CineMover, and tested it in different scenarios. CineMover, our first Gimbal Car, has different speed modes, adjustable ground clearance, long duration, nimble operation. It’s powerful in its drive system, easy in its operation, stable in its moving attitude. CineMover is fully compatible with DJI Ronin stabilizer. If needed, we could also customize it to accommodate other brands’ stabilizers.
