Black Arm – Car Mount
Our Black Arm from FlowCine is one of more favorite tools for camera movement. This system allows for very practical ways to mount our MōVI gimbal systems to various vehicles.
The power of the Black Arm is in the simple, yet ingenious engineering. The Black Arm works a lot like the spring arm or stabilizer arm of a steadicam. This arm removes the unwanted vertical movement caused by the operator moving up and down slightly. The Black Arm does the same thing, just on a larger scale. We are able to mount the Black Arm to any vehicle that can have 50mm speed rail attached to it. Once the Black Arm is tuned for the desired payload, the results can be astonishingly smooth.
We can mount our MōVI Pro or another gimbal system such as the MōVI XL to the Black Arm. The Arm removes most of the vertical movement once the vehicle starts moving, and the MōVI removes any other unwanted movements.
Payloads supported range from 15 lbs – 77 lbs.

The Black Arm can be mounted to any vehicle that speed rail can be attached to.
Vehicle types include:
The Flowcine Tranquilizer uses custom polymers instead of wire rope. This system lets us choose the number and stiffness of dampeners being used, allowing precision tweaking for specific gimbal and camera combinations. Dialing in the Tranquilizer prevents gimbal oscillation, assuring the most stable possible footage.
Basically this allows us to tune our MōVI gimbal systems to maintain maximum gains for the best possible stability.
