Track Options

Bolt Jr. On Track

To add another dimension of movement for the Bolt Jr, you can run the high speed camera robot on a track. Run the Bolt Jr. along a track and follow any object, person, or landscape – giving much more flexibility in terms of visual creativity. With rapid acceleration, the Bolt Jr. on Track can reach 3 meters per second. Additionally, through MRMCs Flair software, you have programmable acceleration profiles so you can consistently reach and maintain desired speeds with pinpoint accuracy.
