Toss up between the Trakker TopMount and the Trakker TopMount Mini.

the mini though, by the pictures, doesnt look to have much play on the vertical pitch of the camera compared to the regular topmount.

also, for the mini installation.. does anyone have the diameter of the rope spindle for an 06 Mobius LSV tower?

anyone who has their boat near by... a Mobius LSV, can you check the diameter for me of the rope spindle on your tower? also how tall is the pipe below spindle.


Thanks guys

Does anyone know of a computer-controlled motion-tracking camera system for boats? I saw the results of a Trakker video when first looking at it a few years ago and did not like it. There can be a big rebound effect and loss of tracking when the rider crashes or if there is any slack in a jump.

Hey do they still make one for a ski pylon? They used to sell them at Overtons but don't anymore. I would love to get one for my new Digital camcorder as my 7 yr old son is killing me with his comentary and angles:)

Holy crap that's a lot of money!

i would have to assume that since they aren't selling them in massive quantities like at a walmart... prices would be steep.

i was willing to pay for it, since i can only control what the footage looks like when i am filming, the shots of me riding usually are usually useless... at least I'll have control now.
