The Hydra Alien Car Mounting System was designed from the ground up to work in conjunction with smaller gimbals to allow for a lightweight solution to car-mounted cinematography.

The system utilizes a highly customizable combination of dovetail-like plates and suction cups that can support a payload of 50kg each.

Highly elastic shock-absorbing silicon provides longer durability and less abrasion, while the updated suction cup plungers create a stronger seal for improved security in colder weather.

When interconnected, the system allows users to fine-tune the exact placement of their shot to achieve almost any angle possible when mounting to a vehicle.

The system also uses a shock absorbing arm to better stabilize the camera for certain shots as well as a spring-loaded cradle head if the intended shot requires that the gimbal be flipped upside down.

The newly included Hydraulic Dampening Pole further stabilizes the arm to provide smoother results when driving conditions are less than optimal.

The Hydra Alien supports full wireless control of the RS2 and RS3 Pro via the optional Remote Control Kit which allows you to control your gimbal’s settings, as well as the record and photo functions of your camera via either a wired or wireless connection.

It also features a thumbstick that allows you to control the pan and tilt of your gimbal for maximum precision while operating.

High, low. To the side of the car, mounted on top of it — almost any car mounted shot can be configured using the Hydra Alien Car Mounting System. Let your imagination run wild!

*This system is compatible with the DJI RS2, RS3, RS3 Pro, Crane 3S, Ronin 4D and any other gimbal that can mount via 1/4″-20 screws and power via P-Tap or internally*

CAUTION: We do not recommend using the suction cups on wrapped vehicles due to suction issues related to direct sunlight and heat.
