Man the shots your getting with this are great! The feet you mated to the rail are really cool I could picture them being able to wrap around anything like a tree for instance to get some amazing shots out in the woods.
Very cool build thanks for sharing.
Yes exactly! Thanks for the compliments.
Welcome, thank you for sharing!
This is terrific. Just what I was looking for. I will search amazon for a slower motor per your suggestion. I am new to open builds and will hope to see your videos, which unfortunately were reported as "this video does not exist" I would love to see them. If you could share them, I am at [email protected] Thanks for sharing and thanks open builds.
PS: I am up in the Sonoran Desert near the Superstition Mountains in Mesa AZ. I fondly recall at trip I made to Big Bend many years ago. Thanks for the memories.
Hi Tom, Yes i switched Gmail accounts a couple months ago... at the time seemed like a good idea. Oh well. I'll post them up again. It does work well. I ended up getting a couple of nuts that fit in the track that are 1/4" 20 thread so the tripods attach more securely directly to the rail which works well.
Where did you find the 1/4-20 nuts that fit the track?
Actually they didn't, I found some on Amazon that were close and ground them down enough to fit.
Not sure why the videos removed from the build when i tried to update it, but here they are

I now have a 3D printer and decided it was time to fix the battery mount and motor mount for this build.
Feel free to use the files if you want.
