Put your videos in motion with the Channel Slider Kit A!  This slider has an overall length of 24” with a usable 19” of slide travel.  It fits nicely in a carry-on bag and is very portable for those who wish to take it along to capture their active lifestyles (overall weight of only 1.1 lbs without motor).  The motor mount is compatible with our Standard Spur Gear Motors (motors sold separately).  The vast motor options allow you to tailor the slider to fit your shooting style whether it’s for real-time shots or super slow time-lapse shots.  The slider kit is constructed entirely of Actobotics components which allow users to expand upon it very easily.  Camera mount not included.

Assembly: Assembly of the Channel Slider Kit A can be done with minimal tools (#2 Phillips screwdriver, 3/32” allen driver7/64” allen driver).  For details on the assembly process, be sure to check out our assembly videos in the 'tech tips' section below.

Recommended camera size: The slider kit is excellent for camera phones, GoPro cameras & small sized cameras.  For larger cameras such as a DSLR, we suggest replacing the stock channel slider plates with the Channel Slider A plates to provide greater lateral stability.


Slider speed calculation: The following formula can be used to help select the correct speed of gearmotor.

6.3 / [(number of seconds for full travel at max speed/60]
For example, if you wish to build a slider that will move 19” in 30 seconds:
6.3 / [30/60] = 12.7 RPM motor required

TIP: To add yet another element to your video, you can install a pan system to the bottom of the Slider Kit A. The 170 degree viewing angle on a GoPro camera won’t allow you to install a pan system on top the slider rail as it would capture the rail throughout the majority of the video footage. By installing a pan system to the bottom side of the rail, you can capture footage without having to worry about the slider rail creeping into view.
