iflyheli aka. York Galland (California, USA) has fitted his Robinson R66 with the first STC'd nosemount and a DynaX5 gimbal. Here's his statement when asked for his motivation: At last there is a professional, but affordable, aerial filming solution with the power, reliability, and low operational costs of the Robinson R66 turbine helicopter teamed with the recently STC'd Arctic Built R66 nosemount, and the super steady, light, infinitely configurable and capable DynaX5 gimbal by Dynamic Perspective!

“The light weight of the DynaX5 is critical both for flight performance and maneuverability. The forward center of gravity offset created by the gimbal feels minimal in flight and the weight of the gimbal, even when using a large lens, was scarcely noticeable.”
“The Gimbal Operating Panel 'GOP' is simple and intuitive. The integrated ARRI software interface on the touch screen panel makes the GOP immediately usable and familiar to all camera operators.”
