Great model! I used this with my AKASO EK700 4K Action Camera ( http://amzn.to/2tw491R same exact thing as a GoPro but only $55!) and it works perfectly!

I missed the part about the bearing. I've included a link to the bearings that should fit and am ordering it now. I'll update to see if that's it.


Enhorabuena por el cable cam, yo he diseñado uno, échale un ojo y dime que te parece http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1055679.

Un saludo

Pues efectivamente, tu cablecam es una evolución muy acertada. Al usar 2 cables, se minimiza el gran problema que tiene el mío que es del movimiento horizontal producido por el aire cuando la cámara es ligera, como es el caso de la GoPro o la Mobius, que son las dos cámaras que uso. Siempre había pensado poner un peso debajo de la cámara, pero tu solución es mejor, está claro. Además me gusta el que se pueda mover con una tercera cuerda, ya sea a mano o con un motor, algo que con el mío no es posible. Me gusta y ya está dentro de mis colecciones. Lo voy a dar a conocer en los grupos de impresoras 3D en Google+, porque seguro que gustará (bastante más que el mío) ;-)

that`s an awesome stuff, thanks for share!

I found this thing in action on youtube! Check it out!


Hey that's me! :)

Good job! I like to watch the video and I find interesting improvements have made

Muy bien! Es super listo!!

Will a wider ball-bearing fit in the "viga"? I am only able to find ball-bearings which have a width of 6mm (7 x 19 x 6).

@zbear14 There is a setting in the GoPro menu to flip the image.

The GpPro is upsidedown...

Can you explain how it all goes together?

did you just glue the mount to the frame?

It is a nice idea. With everything so small and light-weight, I think it will swing around and vibrate as it moves. If that happens you may get a smoother result if you add some weight, maybe on extension arms so it does not turn so easily, like a hand-held stabilizer does.

Video of some action or it didn't happen ;-) No seriously: It would be cool to see some actual footage. THANKS!

Looks great! I would love to see a video of this in action :-)
