The Satellite Universal Mini Thumb Controller from Redrock Micro offers manual tracking and control of your monitor position (as opposed to the FollowMe Sensor which is automatic). Shots which do not require a lot of vertical gimbal movement may best served with quick, manual monitor positioning which you can achieve using the Satellite Thumb Controller.

The beauty of the Satellite is how you do not need to set the gimbal down or ask for another pair of hands to make a monitor adjustment for you. With the thumb controller in play, you gain flexibility and control.

Electronic Manual Positioning

Where vertical gimbal movement isn't required within a take, it can be ideal to set the the monitor position manually. The Satellite controller is great for manual Orbit control, and ships with the Orbit.

Satellite is not just an Orbit Controller. It is a full, 3-axis gimbal conroller (pan/tilt/roll). Satellite also delivers camera RUN/STOP capability. A built-in tally light provides visual confirmation of when the camera is rolling. 

Complete Solo Control

Satellite gives you unprecedented control over your Freefly MoVI, MoVI Pro or DJI Ronin gimbals. As a solo operator, all the controls you want are right at your fingertip. Master your gimbal's movements, tune your settings, and start and stop your camera's record function. Satellite recognizes gimbal settings for fine adjustments.

Change Gimbal Speed & Mode

Switch between your gimbal's different function modes. LED indicators instantly let you know if you are in Majestic / Free Track or full operator control. Satellite also lets you select the motor kill function on most gimbals.
