The Hydra Predator Shock Absorbing Arm is a more flexible package for car mounting camera and gimbal systems via speed rail while also including additional accessories to offer more accurate control and improved ease of use for the DJI RS2 and RS3 Pro.

The Hydra Predator 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.

This Kit is based around the new Predator Rail Mounting Attachment which allows you to secure the arm of the Hydra Alien to any 2 inch speed rail like the ones found in our Speed Rail Mounting Kit.

This offers greater flexibility for vehicle mounting as you are able to better rig a vehicle to your specific needs and will be able to mount the system to structures where 2 inch rails are already present.

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

This Kit features the Remote Control Kit which offers full wired or wireless control of the DJI RS2 or RS3 Pro and includes the Hydra Alien Monitor Bracket which makes it easier to monitor and control the Ronin.

Most importantly, the controller features a thumbstick that allows you to control the pan and tilt of your gimbal for maximum precision while operating.

The new Predator Hard Shell Safety Case is designed to store and protect the Hydra Predator system while remaining lightweight and compact.

This allows you to safely transport the system between shooting locations and neatly store the system when it is not in use.

The waterproof design protects the case and equipment from hazards like rain and snow.

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

NOTE: This system natively supports the DJI RS2, RS3, RS3 Pro and any gimbal that can mount via 1/4″-20 screws and power via P-Tap or internally.

The Remote Control Handle and wireless control features are only supported on the RS2 and RS3 Pro.

RS3/RS3 Pro: The M Key is NOT able to mimic the function of the gimbal. The M Key on this unit can ONLY change the Mode setting.
