So, we banged our heads together for a while, talked to some people tha
Around the holidays we showed a sneak peak of a motion block design for pan and tilt axes that we were working on. Our goals were somewhat lofty: create a truly modular motion block design, with high performance, great load capacity, support for nearly any kind of motor, use common components in the setup, and do it all for a price that wouldn't break the budget.
In our quest to create the perfect ultra-light legs for the Stage One, we wanted to make a product that would have more utility, something that wasn't just a single-function device like the Ultra-Light Legs for the Stage Zero. After months of toil designing, making, refining, and crushing prototypes, we finally created something that fit the bill...
