Tricky Guy gimbals (motion bases) feature repeatable motion control systems. The gimbal motion moves can be run live, recorded or a combination of the two. Recorded positions and speeds are easily edited and played back, these motion programs can be input by a scale model Waldo, joystick and built up by keyframe positions. Visual Effects can prepare the desired motion at the previs stage, these Maya or other position data files run and edited by the system.

6-HD Motion Base

The 6-HD is a Six Degree of Freedom Heavy Duty Motion Base built to move around the largest sets – ships, submarines, entire passenger jet fuselages. The geometry of the base is configured for each individual setup to ensure safe and effective operation. The 6-HD is complemented by a 540 hp Hydraulic Power Unit.

6-60 Motion Base

Both 6-60 motion bases are identical and feature an extreme operating envelope with a 30 to 35,000lb payload. The 660 has manipulated full size passenger planes, large helicopters, tanks, trains and sets. Combined with a 7th axis motion control rotator, it will turn the payload continuously in either direction. Typically powered by 100 hp hydraulic power unit, this may be increased with the addition of the 7th axis.

6-36 Motion Base

The 6-36 base has a capacity of 10,000 to 14,000 lbs depending on the payload, it is very quick and has an extreme operating envelope. A 7th axis rotator can be added for live motion control or simply indexing for lighting and camera positions. Powered with a 40 to 100 HP Hydraulic Power Unit

6-24 Motion Base

The 6-24 arrives on a flat deck truck assembled. It is quick to set up and is the perfect platform for cars, small trucks, Santa's Sleigh and cockpits. A maximum payload of 12,000 lbs. Generally coupled to a 40 hp pump a 7th axis can be added to index the set for lighting and camera.

6 - 20 Electric Motion Base

The 6-20 is a fully electric motion base. A good fit for visual effects shots needing fast repeatable motion for car/cockpit bucks, proxies and sets. It can be moved on stage quickly and only electrical connections are required.

6 - 12 Electric Motion Base

The 6-12E is a fully electric motion base. A good system for visual effects shots needing fast repeatable motion for small bucks, proxies and sets. The 6-12 E has a 7th axis rotator and has been used in actor and stunt rigs, to simulate flying, motorcycle and horse riding. The 6-12E is suitable for process rigs, operated remotely. Best suited for payloads of 1000lbs or less

6 - 12 Motion Base

The 6-12 hydraulic motion base has been used for car and cockpit bucks, actor and stunt rigs to simulate flying, motorcycle and horse riding. Suited for payloads of 3500 lbs or less, powered by a 10 to 20 hp Hydraulic Power Unit

6 - 10 Micro Motion Base

The 6-10 micro is small and quiet, stand alone or designed into sets, props and custom builds. Suited for payloads of 1000 lbs or less, powered by a 10 to 20 hp Hydraulic Power Unit
