    I actually bought mine as a kit a few years ago, but it’s the same thing. I used an inverting bracket to get the camera low to the ground, and I love the effect.

    I built a fig-rig for $22.00 and honestly got far better video than any of the stick stabilizers do.

    Look online for make your own Figrig. you can do it easy out of pvc, or like I did by building a form and bending conduit then welding a bit and wrapping with handlebar wrap.

    Far FAR better than any of the stick stabs.
