** At launch - only iPhones are supported - we'll update you as soon as Android support is added! **

Rubberised, flat bottom surface to ensure that the Freefly Movi can be put down without any damage.

What does the Movi app do?
The new Freefly Movi app (only for iOS at launch) unlocks a few new modes:
Majestic - Gives you direct control over the Movi, stabilising your footage automatically. Choose between presets including horizen leveling to acheive stunning and smooth results.
Echo - Echo allows you to capture complex shots that previously took a small team. Choose the start and end point of your shot then let Movi control the rest.
Timelapse - For creating smooth timelapses - anywhere, anytime! Shoot left, right, up or down with complete precision.
Movilapse - Create timelapses while you're still moving - create some amazing shots as the Freefly Movi responds 10x slower than normal, giving you super smooth shots while on the move.
Smartpod - Manually point your Freefly Movi at a subject and it'll accurately hold the position.
Orbit - Choose a speed and direction to circle a subject with ease. Movi will stay fixed on your subject while you move.
What does the Freefly Movi come with?
In the Movi's box you'll find:
1 x Freefly Movi
1 x Flexible USB A-C Cable
1 x Travel Case
When does Freefly Movi launch?
The only date we have at present is Q2 2018.
If you pre order the Freefly Movi with Heliguy in the UK - we'll keep you updated as and when we have confirmed shipping dates from Freefly.
What phones can I use with the Freefly Movi?
The Freefly Movi supports only iPhones at launch, but Android devices should be supported in the near future (we hope).
Any mobile phone up to 90mm wide can be used with the Freefly Movi.
That means every kind of iPhone is supported - but take off any bulky cases if you're using a "Plus" model.
How is the Freefly Movi's Battery Life?
Freefly have stated that they have seen "over 8 hours" battery life when using the Movi.
However, this is under "light use" and only with a "well-balanced setup".
Realistically, you could be looking at 4-5 hours with regular use.
The more motion the gimbal has to compensate for during use, the faster the battery will drain.
