    I tried several gimbals on my FS100, DJI Ronin work well but it is too heavy for me, the Movi M5 work well, it is very light but it can only support SEL 10-18mm lense.
    My solution comes from Letus Hélix.
    Here is my first tests on vimeo:

    Did you ever get the FS7 to work on the Helix? If so, I'd love to see picture of how you rigged it up. Stuff looked good, liked the concept.

    I tried for two months to make the F5 work on my Helix without success, but I now use it with a A7S much more successfully. That FS7 looks awfully front heavy. I can't see how that looks balanced.

    The FS7's weight is 1.7kg + 150g VF and hélix with battery is 3.2 kg a total near 5kg what i can do is attach a vmount on my belt and plug dtap cable that will power FS7 and Hélix so virtualy i could remove 700g (hélix and sony batteries). For the FS7 we need an long base plate from Hélix. I noticed that shooting with the FS7 in Slow motion mode desactivate AutoFocus. The FS700 can do slow motion with autofocus.... i know that a7s is lighter but with his restrictions (no 4k, no slow-mo, and 30 minutes battery...)
