The Public Lab Store ships this product internationally.

The Redstone Rig kit includes all the pieces to build a ready-to-fly rig for holding a small point & shoot camera pointed at any angle. This includes four 3D printed parts and the hardware to hold them together. The articulated camera tray allows vertical shooting for mapping and also oblique photography with the rig balanced in either position. The camera (not included) is attached with a thumb screw (included) into the tripod socket so it stays securely pointed in the same direction. The camera controls and LCD screen are always accessible. Protective legs and bumpers (included) can be quickly configured in various ways for different needs. The rig can be easily suspended from the flying line using either a Picavet or pendulum system and requires one or the other for optimal operation.  

This rig is shipped with one of three different tray types (details below) -- please select Standard (default), Narrow, or One-lip above.

Typical flying Weight: 154 grams

Weight with no legs or bumpers: 94 grams

Assembly time: 1.5 hours

See the Redstone Rig Guides for more information.

The One-lip Tray, Standard Tray, and Narrow Tray (L to R) for the Redstone Rig. 
The Standard and Narrow trays have raised lips on both sides, so the base of the camera has to fit between them. The back of the camera should be mounted up against a lip to prevent rotation which could change the lens direction and loosen the tripod screw. The second lip makes the tray reversible so it can be drilled for another camera with a tripod socket in a slightly different place. The two different widths allow small and large cameras to be balanced front to back. A third tray is wide but has only One lip so deeper cameras or cameras with lenses extending close to their bottoms can be accommodated. It is also possible to carve away part of the front lip to accommodate cameras that extend forward too far. The two wider trays have three bolt holes on each arm for mounting to the upper frame with either large or small cameras balanced front to back. All lips are 4 mm high. Extra trays are available under Aerial Rig Parts.

The width (long dimension) of the camera must be less than 12.5 cm to fit on the tray.
