Koliber Motorized Video Head is exceptionally light, durable, precise and versatile. Owing to innovative solutions, we managed to create a product which quickly claimed the position of the ranking leader.


An advanced laser treatment and an application of durable, tough materials let us design a head that weights as little as 1.6kg! The precision of produced parts facilitated the assembly of a very tight and ideally fitted construction.

The Head is dedicated mainly for Flamingo crane. Due to application of  3/8'' fixing bolts, it also works outstandingly with other cranes.

Koliber means lightness, speed, and precision.




Professional Remote Controller designed to get the most from Koliber Motorized Head.
The heart of Condor is an advanced microprocessor running custom software, making sure that the Head works perfectly.



  • adjustable RAMP function,
  • two modes of operation – linear and logarithmic,

Special Functions

The Head features an innovative and practical Autopanorama function. It lets you move the camera constantly and stably in horizontal 360 degrees axis. The speed is regulated by a knob and has a range from 6 seconds to 8 minutes per full turn. After the parameters have been set up, you start the Head by pressing the button on the control panel. In Autopanorama mode, you can correct the speed and turning direction in real time.



Thanks to Autocalibration feature, every time you turn on the driver (after 2 secs) the joystick is automatically placed at 0 (resting) point. This function effectively eliminates the so-called slow-swimming effect of the engines at resting point of the joystick. Autocalibration further prevents an accidental and quick start-up of the head after the device has been turned on.


Multifunctional Memory Bank
The controller also has a practical function of head movement memory, the so-called memory bank. A registered material may be played and rewound on demand or played in a continuous loop.
