What is the U-CRANE Mini System ?

The U-CRANE Mini is the unique combination of the carbon fiber gyro-stabilized Flight Head Mini 3 on the end of a mini version of our famous U-CRANE. The smaller light weight arm provides the benefits of rigging this system onto smaller vehicles such as Razor or Chevy Volt or any picture car.

This low profile high speed mobile crane arm used for photographing moving vehicles from just about any & every angle you want in all weather conditions. Shots are setup on the fly & adjusted instantly. Sequences can be as dynamic as your imagination.
