The stabilizer is made of lightweight aluminum and weighs only 3 lb.

FLYCAM Arm Brace Support for Select Mechanical Stabilizers

The FLYCAM Arm Brace Support wraps around the arm, securing by hook-and-loop fasteners, and provides a metal post for mounting select mechanical stabilizers. It supports the FLYCAM 3000, 5000, and Nano, as well as many 3rd-party models. Providing cushion comfort while distributing the weight of the stabilizer over your forearm, it reduces arm stress and fatigue and allows for easier and more controlled handling of the stabilizer.

The metal post on the end measures 0.72" in diameter on top and 0.85" on the bottom. The control handle of the stabilizer mounts directly on top of this post. Any handle that meets these diameter measurements is compatible. With your hand over the stabilizer handle, you can then operate the stabilizer with better stability. The handle doesn't need to be secured in any way but rather just slides on from the top. The arm brace can be worn over the left or right arm and fits virtually all arm sizes.

FLYCAM HD-5000 Reviews

Comfortable Camera Support

By Rafael
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-09

The Flycam stabilizer design is straight forward and easy to use. The only flaw a discovered was the spindle. The package should include different size spindles to allow for using different gimbal designs. Otherwise, it is a great design. I loved it from the first time I used it.

Stabilization is poor

We have discovered that the stabilization is very poor on this product. Not happy with it.

Nice for small cameras

I loved it, however my camera is a little too big size wise but under the 11lbs weight limit. Using the Canon XF 300, with battery pack, and two memory cards. Easy to put together and operate, takes some time getting the hang of balancing.

Pretty good rig for the price

I’ve only used it one time but it appears to be good quality. It takes the weight off my arm and will take some practice but it’s a good value.

Great tool

This is a great way to smoothly handle my Canon C100 Mark ii camera. I tried a smaller motorized gimbal with my DSLR camera and lost patience with getting it balanced and the extra tech that's required. I like the hand-held look but the weight of the C100 camera, over time, makes it difficult to keep steady. Just the FLYCAM stabilizer and a mounted camera is heavy, but the vest makes it effortless. It's doubtful someone could support the camera and stabilizer alone for any length of time without a Herculean arm. After quickly balancing it, I walked around, through doorways, and climbed some stairs to test it out. It was so smooth that the video just glided with barely a notice of my movements. I even ran into something while shooting and it was hardly noticeable. Planning to use this a lot!

Pieces Don't Make Sense

By Jason
Rated 1 out of 5

I am giving this a BAD review because a few of the essential pieces that don't make sense. The Camera Platform on the Stabilizer has a PLASTIC Arca Swiss type plate to attach to your camera. This is so CHEAP that even my little Panasonic GX-85 makes the plastic bulge and bend. No way to Stabilize the camera if the plate gives way in 2 directions. The Weight adjustment system on the bottom of the Stabilizer, is a cheap plastic friction lock. Why not make a simple cotter pin locking system like old style crutches. It slips and you can't Stabilize the Camera! Here is the absolutely ridiculous part! The pin on the Stabilizing Arm that is supposed to hold the Stabilizer, is not the same diameter as the Stabilizer Handle. Are. You. Kidding. Me. These two components; the Vest and Stabilizer are from the same company. What kind of a Machinist would allow that? Flycam includes the cheapest, flimsiest, soft plastic ring to make up for the incorrect diameter. The plastic is already worn through, so the handle wiggles around on the undersized pin... you can't stabilize the CAMERA!! I would ask B&H for a refund, but I didn't start using it until a few months ago, long after I purchased it. This is an embarrassing piece of junk. Flycam should be ashamed at this. B&H should reconsider carrying this. Save your money, wait till you get enough to buy something with 5 stars!

Can you connect any camera to flycam?
Asked by: Shan
The camera mount on this product is universal just about any camera can physically mount on it however the Flycam is only designed to carry 11 lbs. The Flycam works with any camera that is under 11 lbs. (11 lbs. includes any accessories that you may mount such as monitors, lenses, batteries etc)
