"The ultimate filmmaking tool" - Tom Blount, Silvertip Films Cinematographer
The Ghost V3 uses a patent pending mini rail system for adjusting each axis. The rails can be changed out for different sizes, so you can balance any size camera. There is a weight limit of five pounds due to the torque of the motors, but the goal is to keep everything lightweight. If you need to support a heavier camera then look into our Ghost Pro II, which can support up to 12lb.

We have taken the Ghost to the next level with built-in encoders (sensors) in the motors. The motors have been completely redesigned. Unlike the rest of the gimbal market, we are now using motors with encoders built-in. We have customized every aspect of the motor for optimal performance. The built in encoders have the following advantages:
One thing we have learned over the years is that everyone wants a gimbal to be easy to adjust and adapt to every camera setup. With our patent pending rail design you can swap rails out for any desired length, which means you can balance any size camera < 5lbs. Here are the Features:
You can mount the Ghost V3 directly to your drone. Because the V3 is so light, it is the perfect companion for getting smooth aerial footage. With the top quick release, it’s easy to remove the grip bar and attach the ghost under any multirotor. We are producing a separate mount for attaching to a drone.
The Ghost easily breaks down, so you can pack it in a carry-on for travel.
We redesigned the controller to utilize motor encoders. We also included a Bluetooth device, so you can connect with your phone or computer without using any cables.
If you don’t have much or any experience calibrating a gimbal, then the Ghost has a new Auto Calibrate mode to set appropriate settings for your specific camera setup. Always make sure to save your current settings before changing them.
If you want higher angle shots, then simply flip the Ghost upside-down for an inverted mode. The Ghost can work either way without even needing to change the mode.
This is the same mode we have been using on our current models, but it can easily be customized for your specific operating style. In the follow mode the Ghost will automatically track your movements whether you are tilting up and down or panning left and right. The horizon will always stay locked in a level position unless you change that option in the settings.

Aside from our competitive price, we strive to make one of the best quality gimbals that is easy to balance and operate. We were one of the first companies to develop a brushless gimbal, so we know this technology inside and out and our customer service can assist in any questions you might have. The V3 is very user friendly and can work with any camera and easily be attached to any device. The Ghost V3 is the most adjustable camera stabilizer on the market.
Why Choose the V3 vs the Pro II?
The main difference is how heavy of a camera setup you want to mount. If your camera is between 1-12lbs, the Pro version is for you. If your camera is 5lbs or under you will want the V3. The V3 is much lighter, so it will be less fatigue on your arms.
How heavy of a camera can be supported?
Camera, lens, and accessory combinations from 1 – 5 pounds. Anything added above the grip bar is not factored into this weight limit. i.e. monitor
How long does the battery last?
The supplied battery will last from 90 to 180 minutes. Battery life depends on how heavy of a camera you are flying and what your power is set to in the GUI. With the incorporation of encoders you will get a much longer battery life than other gimbals.
Can I attach a monitor?
Yes, you will want to purchase the accessory mount and then you can attach any accessory to the top of the grip bar.
Can I control the Ghost with a joystick or remote control?
The Ghost is easily adapted to be controlled by a joystick or remote control. Both are sold separately, but we have instructional videos on how to set those up.
