MIMIC connects the operator to the image in a completely new and visceral way using a 2-hand handlebar and a controller which detects your movements in relation to your MoVI gimbal stabilizer. When you move the MIMIC Controller, the MIMIC remotely controls the movement of your MoVI gimbal.

MIMIC offers precise and natural control over the MoVI Pro. It intuitively follows a user's movements. MIMIC features a long range 2.4 GHz frequency hopping radio system that provides users access to MōVI Pro pointing control, status information, menus, and RED camera controls.

With the launch of the MōVI in 2013, Freefly tackled the issue of stability and enabled unrestricted camera movement in a way that wasn't possible before. Now, they bring their idea for the evolution of camera control to the market with the Freefly MIMIC Beta Program; no buttons, joysticks, knobs or wheels to frame the shot, just tilt the screen where you want the shot to go and be physically connected to the remote camera. It is a system so intuitive and organic that operators can execute complex moving shots with precise framing after just minutes of practice.

Any MoVI can be configured for use with the MIMIC Beta. In order to use MIMIC Mode in the General Menu of your MoVI Gimbal Application, you need to set it to Handheld.

The MIMIC comes pre-bound to the included Freefly Receiver. Should you decide to use a different receiver, please refer to the instructions in the MIMIC Beta Manual.

Use the Pan Freeze button to pause the system while you reposition your MIMIC (the pan axis will lock). Releasing the Pan Freeze button will now transmit pan movements to your MoVI from the new base orientation.

NOTE: Avoid pressing the Pan Freeze button during initilization of your MIMIC. Otherwise, a power cycle will be required.

Check out our video blogs to see the MIMIC in action.

There are 4 MIMIC Modes:

Direct Mode

Move the MIMIC and your MoVI gimbal will follow on the corresponding axes. This is the most responsive control setting for it does as the product name implies, it mimics your movement.

Level Roll Mode

Maintain a level roll axis while the MoVI responds to your movements.

Majestic Pan

A Pan Smoothing parameter in the Majestic Config menu determines the amount of smoothing applied to your pan axis movements. The roll axis is held level in this mode while the tilt axis control remains direct (with no smoothing applied).

Majestic Pan & Tilt

As the name suggests, this mode controls both pan and tilt axes. The Pan and Tilt Smoothing parameters in the Majestic Config menu establish the amount of smoothing.


The MIMIC Beta Program is a beta product and not recommended for production use.

The MIMIC Beta Program does not include a monitor, video link or battery for either.

The MōVI Controller features MIMIC Mode via the latest MōVI Controller BETA firmware update.
