    Its the M .. its is awful round corners.. complete disappointment... now bought a Movi Pro.

    For vehicles you need a GPS driven gimbal and DJI mumble about it while Movi do it (even M5/M10.. which are affordable)

    I'm still wanting to do this too.

    How about the new rig wheels cloud mount SLINGSHOT? What do you guys think about it?

    I was thinking maybe of sticking the slingshot out on an L arm and suspending the gimbal from it. Or underslung on a short jib.
    I bought a Ronin M on sale end of last year but haven't had time to use it at all yet. Maybe I should return it

    Did you ever find an acceptable solution? Has anyone tried the Kessler Killshock?

    Definitely not going to bat for Rigwheels, but if you accept what it is and work around it’s limitations you can get good stuff. I’ve owned one since they came out like 5 years ago and use it from time to time. Here’s two examples that is the Cloudmount, Ronin-M (the weaker gimbal), on a Canon C100 & C200 utilizing lenses with image stabilization:

    We've discussed car mounting several times but now I've come across this. What do you think?

    Thank you Morgan_moore, I hoped you would see this old thread and chime back in again. I'm not going to buy it...yet anyway. But I sure want to haha.
    I was wondering if it could be mounted to a bar attached to the receiver hitch or if it that would allow a little movement that would be too much and need to be secured by a top point of connection too.

    The engineering rule thing that look wrong being wrong says no. I needs to be mounted at three points.

    My own rig its pretty easy..

    receiver hitch
    upright tube

    then two 40in arms to cheap suckers on the rear window.

    That basic build has worked for me but I prefer connections 2 and 3 to be something to do with the roofrack.

    the TL at the opening of this shows vehicle hitch and two stickers, fairly minimal. https://vimeo.com/211551646

    Thank you. Your video was helpful too. I figured it needed several points of contact

    Don't forget that rigging of sorts is needed for audio as well for car shoots ;-)

    Done quite a few videos about car rigs for recording in audio cars:
