Introducing the Mecha Automated Rotator E1 + Single Axis Controller C1
A new motorized rotator head for use with NN3 MKII, NN3 MK3, R1, R10, R20, RS1, (heads sold separately). Adapters available for older 360Precison Atome heads. Mecha is lightweight, quiet and power efficient. Together with the Single Axis Controller C1 (F9910), it automates the panning axis of Nodal Ninja. The Mecha E1 is NOT recommended for larger Nodal Ninjas (NN6 and M Series) at this time (stronger Mecha Rotators to accommodate greater weights are in development). Together with a "dual axis" controller (also in development), two E1 rotators can be added to motorize Nodal Ninja MK3 pan and tilt axes for multi-row application.
This limited first release of the motion control is considered as BETA (hence reduced price). Any needed updates will be via firmware update. We are treating this first production model as beta release. A limited number of prototypes have been tested thoroughly. However, there can be bugs in unforeseen situations or environments. We will fix/ replace beta units if bugs affect the major operation or safety. Firmware is still under active development. Many updates are likely. Firmware update can be done over the air from server once the controller is connected to the internet. It can also be updated via USB cable.

Nonexhaustive list of compatible cameras with MECHA
We have been using automated panorama photography equipment very extensively for about 3 years now. This Mecha motor is by far the best product on the market. The Theta, and Gear 360 cameras can't get close to the quality of a DSLR, and this motor integrates and runs the camera with no issues. No bluetooth connections you have to worry about breaking. And consistently takes the pictures you want every time. 10 out of 10 would buy again, and in fact I am buying many more of these again
