The World’s Most Innovative Camera Stabilizer
Every effort was made to shave out as much material as possible. The skeleton design provides a light weight frame work without sacrificing strength.
Our patent pending design balances the camera on its optical center. This allows you to do nodal point rolls and greatly aids in image stabilization.
Because we can balance every thing around the optical center of the camera, setup is crazy fast. You can be up and running in a matter of minutes, not hours.
Right Side Up
Other devices on the market are simply helicopter gimbals with a handle attached to the top. We designed ours from the ground up for “hands” not “helicopters”.

What Sets the Helix Apart?
Balancing is a Breeze
Ask a traditional helicopter camera gimbal operator to change a lens mid shoot and watch them cringe. Not so with Helix. Re-balancing the Helix after a lens changes is simply a matter of sliding a single axis forward or back. You can be back up and running without missing a beat.
In a real production environment, you need a bullet proof design. We carefully designed the Helix to be a clean, ready-to-use rig that didn’t have wires dangling about and awkward, non-standard powering solutions.
Flat Bottom Design
Call us crazy but we don’t think you should have to carry around a special rig to hang your stabilizer up. You should be able to just set it down! Because we designed Helix from the ground up rather than the sky down, it has a flat bottom. Simply set it down and, voila, it sits there calmly waiting for the next shot.
Designed for Film Makers
From day one the Helix was designed for film makers. It is not a re-purposed design with fragments from the RC helicopter world still clinging to the frame. It is designed to be easily utilized without adding to an already complex film making workflow.
One, two, three, or four axis. It’s your choice! The Helix system can be built up or torn down to accommodate your needs. Use one axis on top of a SteadiCam for an auto-horizon solution. Switch to a three axis setup to go full handheld. The choice is yours.
We’ve been around for a long time. Since the 35mm adapter days, Letus has continued to build and support quality products for the film industry. We are an established company familiar with the industry not a fly-by-night start up looking to make a quick buck. The Letus name means you’ll have the backing of a company who is committed to your success as a film maker.
