Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why buy the Ghost?
Aside from our lower price, we strive to make one of the best quality, lightweight gimbals that are easy to balance and operate. We are proud to offer one of the lightest gimbals on the market. If you operate a camera stabilizer for any period of time you will know that a lightweight device is very important. Using a combination of carbon fiber and aluminum, the Ghost remains lightweight and durable.

Why Choose the Ghost V2 vs the Pro?

The main difference is how heavy a camera you want to mount. If your camera is pushing 5-10lbs, the Pro version is for you. If your camera setup is 1-5lbs then the V2 might be right for you. The V2 motors are smaller, creating a light setup, so there is less fatigue when operating.

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. Depending on the weight of your setup, the power settings will need to be adjusted. You can email us for sample profiles for different camera setups.

How long does the battery last?

The supplied battery will last from 90 to 150 minutes. Battery life depends on how heavy of a camera you are flying and what your power is set to in the GUI.

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.
