The mystery Motorized Slider is no longer under pixelation- introducing the OliviaTech Motorroid by Varavon! In the video below I explain in detail for you guys all of the features on each part of the OliviaTech Motorroid, from the motor itself with variable speeds to the assembly.
For the OliviaTech Motorroid, Varavon will be giving all customers 24% off of their purchase on this product at the Varavon website. The retail value of the Motoroid + Slidecam LITE800 at Varavon.com is currently around $650, however if you purchase the OliviaTech Motorroid (that is the complete motor + slider kit), you will automatically receive the 24% off of your purchase.
Slider – The OliviaTech Motorroid comes with the Slidecam LITE800 32″ steel roller bearing slider. The trolley on this slider has a payload capacity of 6 – 13 lbs. and is equipped with a breaking system and bubble level. There is a 3/8″ male screw on the trolley for attaching standard fluid or ball heads.
Legs – The legs on the OliviaTech Motorroid are articulating at two points. You can adjust the span vertically or horizontally. There are also micro adjustments on the feet to dial in precise leveling on uneven terrain.
Belt – The belt that will ship with the OliviaTech Motorroid is 1 meter in length. Or 3.28 inches.
Motor – This motor is has Variable speeds controlled by a dial. You can also adjust the speed of the ramp. This means that if you want to accelerate or slow down your start or stop, you can control these with the dedicated speed control dial. At the fastest speed setting, the motor will carry the trolley 32″ in 20 seconds. At the slowest setting, the motor can carry the trolley 32″ in 5.3 minutes. The maximum load capacity is approximately 6.2 lbs. at a 90º angle.
Tension adjustable – You can simply adjust the tension on the slider with a phillips screw driver from the opposite end of the motor. This action will give the belt more or less tension.
Limiters – The provided limiters can be easily moved to any location on the belt. This makes it possible to command the start and stop at any position you desire. It also prevents you from overdriving the trolley.
Saddle – The saddle that carries the slider’s trolley can be secured with the provided phillips screw. This prevents the belt from coming off the track while in transit.
Traveling Case – The travel bag that the OliviaTech Motorroid ships in is a heavy duty, two section bag with a padded separator to keep your gear protected against any additional tripods, light stands or gear that you have packed in the bag. There is also a zippered mesh pocket and fastening straps to keep your OliviaTech Motorroid from shifting in the travel bag while you’re mobile with it.
Battery – This is optional. Varavon offers a 12V External Battery to power your OliviaTech Motorroid. In the video I am using two Tekkeon myPower ALL Plus External Instrument MP3450i Batteries.
