XM2 | R2 Exoskeleton | Safety System for DJI Ronin 2 Gimbal | Enhanced Tuning | Bonus Ronin-Majig

We developed an Exoskeleton designed to reinforce the DJI Ronin 2 Gimbal at its most vulnerable point.

Since 2017, the DJI Ronin 2 has been in the hands, vehicles and drones of XM2 film crews worldwide. Over these seven years, our team have gained valuable insights into this gimbals capacity. We identified a common issue: vulnerability just above the neck of the roll axis. We go hard. We had in cracks and separation in the Ronin 2 carbon fiber structure many times. Heavy camera payloads, rigid mounting, and demanding setups can significantly increase the risk of premature failure.

Our engineers at XM2 Labs used 3D scanning technology to analyze the DJI Ronin 2s core structure. And since early 2023, we've been prototyping our R2 Exoskeleton throughout the worlds toughest filming locations. We took the fall so you don't have to.

The R2 Exoskeleton is shaped from durable, 6061 Aluminum metal supports. These supports effectively bridge across the vulnerable area, providing critical support to reduce the likelihood of separation.

We've also incorporated the ability to attach accessories to the rear of the Exoskeleton. You might use this for video transmitters, Aero Landing Gear, counterweights and more. Choose your own Exoskeleton adventure and customize your setup.

Already proven on-set in the worlds harshest conditions, you can trust the original.
