Hi, my name is Pilec ( :blink: ) and I have this unbelievable project of making my own stedicam . At home. By myself. I want to know if there are bearings placed in the arm between the joints in order to reduce friction. Are they necessary or not? It would be a lot easier for me to make steadicam without those bearings. But would the movements of the arm be enough smooth without bearings. What is the weight of the real stedicam (double)arm? What is the strength of the
spring (in kilograms) when in operation?

Hi Pilec
If I was you I would go to www.homebuiltstabilizers.com/ You will find like minded people who have been there done that when it comes to making everything to do with making a camera stabilzer(arms ,vests,sleds of all shapes and sizers)
