Tilta Hydra Arm Mini

Tilta Hydra Arm Mini

The Hydra Arm Mini is a car mounted camera arm intended for smaller cameras and fits on almost any car. The Hydra Mini Arm is used in combination with the DJI RS2, RS 3 and the Ronin 4D.

This gives the Hydra Arm Mini three levels of stabilization: the stabilization in the base of the Hydra Arm Mini, a shock absorbing arm at the end of the arm, and the DJI gimbal itself.

The arm can reach heights of 3 to 3,5 meters depending on the car. The arm can rotate horizontally 360° with a maximum speed of 60° per second. Vertically, 80° is the maximum and speed is maximum of 45° per second.

Not much more information is available at the moment. The Bill of Materials (BOM) and the price are not yet known exactly. A price of around 12.000 euros excluding VAT is expected.

Stay tuned for more information.

The Tilta Hydra Alien Car Mounting System is part of the Tilta DJI Ecosystem. This is a collection of products and accessories designed specifically and in collaboration with DJI for the DJI RS 2 and RSC 2 gimbals. The Tilta Ecosystem products increase the applicability of the DJI Gimbals. Combining the DJI RS 2 with the Tilta Float creates a Steadycam-like stabiliser.
