Moza AirCross Gimbal Stabilizer Overview

Here's a look at one my favorite lightweight gimbals as of late, designed for popular small cameras such as the Panasonic GH4, GH5, GH5s, or even the Sony A6500. The Moza AirCross is lightweight, packs up small, but most importantly has performed flawlessly over the last several months on every project i've used it on. In fact a few of my friends who have tried this gimbal with their GH5 cameras have also opted to switch to the Moza AirCross.

The Moza AirCross can support payloads of up to 4lbs which is enough for most mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras using native lenses. The AirCross has a 12 hour battery life, but as an option you can power your camera from the gimbal using a dummy battery adapter. Taking it one step further, you can actually power the gimbal from an external 12V battery if for some reason you think you'll need unlimited runtime.

One thing I didn't touch on in my video is the Moza Assistant smartphone App. This app has a nifty feature that allows you to use the Moza AirCross for 2-Axis motion control timelapse.

As you switch between a lighter or heavier payload, the Moza AirCross also has built in Auto-Tuning to eliminate any vibration or oscillations normally caused by too little or too much power to the motors. The wireless remote utilizes accelerometers and Gyros. These built in sensors allow the remote/gimbal to mimic the movements of the operator. Just by physically moving the remote you can control Pan, Tilt, and Roll from up to 50 meters away. If you're working with the smaller camera setups (under 4lbs), I see no reason why you shouldn't consider the Moza AirCross.

    Great review. This is my first gimbal after having an Osmo x, and I found balancing my gh5 easy after your video. I’m sure I can improve my ‘ninja walk’ but I did find the amount of z-axis walk bounce a bit disappointing - is a segue way the only real answer, or does the double hand grip help? Secondly, what kind of follow modes were you using in the truck video, if you don’t mind sharing? Just gorgeous images.

    for $499 this is really targeted at videographers or film-makers that's just starting.

    the ronin-s is now priced around $929. i would say if you can save up definitely get the ronin-s, but if you are not sure if you are serious about video, this is probably the gimbal for you

    @Dennins Kane - Not sure why, but all you need to do is grab the pitch motor with one hand, and then rotate the gimbal to inverted mode.

    I am having difficulty when I try to move to the inverted mode, the motors really resist. I must be doing something wrong, so if you could inform me I would appreciate it.
    Thank you

    @Nick - Yeah i'm familiar with that motion, but don't seem to have that problem with the Moza AirCross. I think there's some BTS (at end of video), where you can see us doing the same motion and it doesn't auto pan. I see you're using a small camera, so the AirCross should work fine with your setup.

  6. I have the zhiyun crane and I'm looking to upgrade. My zhiyun crane always pans when moving the hand from a horizontal position to a vertical position. From my understanding its just in the way their software/algorithm is. My biggest worry is that upgrading to my next gimbal will still have this issue. Can you confirm this?

    for a better idea what i'm talking about here is a video demonstration.

    Excellent video ! Thank you for producing this. I have this gimbal and I was struggling to understand a few concepts for which I could not find answers. Your video instantly cleared up my questions.
    Thank you
