Pendulum

$26.00

Price includes US shipping.

A pendulum suspension works great on balloon flights because the flexible damping tube holds the camera away from the line. Just wrap the flying line several times around the stiff wire at the top (the spiral on one half should be in the same direction as the spiral on the other half). A 38 cm long carbon fiber tube tends to hang vertically to keep the camera rig steady and completely eliminates camera spinning. Attaches easily to the Redstone, Aerobee, and Titan 2 rigs. A safety lanyard is included for a redundant connection between flying line and camera. There are no 3D printed parts in this suspension. The Pendulum is also available as a kitFor more details see Guides

Assembly time: No drilling or gluing is needed and assembly takes 10 minutes.

Weight: 44 grams.
