Proaim Sky-Walker Pro Cinema Cablecam System
We saw a need for a point-to-point cablecam system that is self-powered, easy to setup and operate. We knew there was nothing that existed for film makers on a budget. That’s the reason Proaim launches Sky-Walker Cablecam, professional video shooting equipment that gives filmmakers total control over motion and allows shooting in any situation.

Proaim Sky-Walker Pro Cinema Cablecam System
We saw a need for a point-to-point cablecam system that is self-powered, easy to setup and operate. We knew there was nothing that existed for film makers on a budget. That’s the reason Proaim launches Sky-Walker Cablecam, professional video shooting equipment that gives filmmakers total control over motion and allows shooting in any situation. Proaim Cablecam System offers the possibility to fly your camera in open space by remote-controlled cable-drive system. The cablecam is used in areas where the camera needs to constantly repeat a forward/back or left/right tracking shot. It is compatible with DJI Ronin/M/MX & Mövi gimbal stabilizers.
Proaim Sky-Walker Cablecam is a product of engineers and filmmakers. All parts are made of CNC machined Aluminum with utmost precision and care. It works at maximum speed of 40 km/h. A maximum payload of 10kg/22lb gives the user enough capacity to work with DSLRs, HD Video & Cinema Cameras like RED Epic, ARRI Alexa mini etc. The highly sophisticated wireless remote control system guarantees a long 100m range and long battery-life experience. The clever design, cooperation of electronic parts, control over movements, utmost quality construction and high-strength cable provides Safe & Extra-smooth shots. Fly through difficult terrains or over viewers and crowds – almost everywhere – where a drone is not allowed or possible!
Programmable End Points
Proaim Cablecam allows you to set the target distance anywhere on the cable as per your shot requirement, once target distance is set, the cablecam will follow it perfectly. It will automatically stop at target-set end points; this allows you to control framing and movement all by yourself, and result in smooth endings. With this Safety & Damping feature of Proaim Cable Cam, you will never have to take your eyes off the monitor or count on a second operator for the perfect shot.
The Sky-Walker can ‘ping-pong’ back & forth continuously. It is capable to drive between user-set target distance at required speed. Intelligent Automatic Loop System lets you be creative without the stress of crashing or relying on a spotter. This mode is perfect for capturing great moments in seconds!
High Performance Motor
The multi-pole designed 24V brushed DC motor have enough torque to drive the camera rig without the need for a gearbox. This enables the drive system to be almost completely silent– an important requirement for Cablecams. It is designed to give the highest level of performance achieved by using the utmost quality materials.
Efficient Motor Driver
The motor driver is one of the most versatile and easy to use drivers on the market. It can supply peak current of max 91A to the brushed DC motor. It is the first synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class and also allows very fast stops and reverses. The motor driver has overcurrent & thermal protection feature which means your driver will never get damaged with accidental stalls or by hooking-up a big motor.
Precision Encoder Motor
The high precision encoder motor works with gear which is mounted on End wheel to ensure accurate control on movements. It helps to determine speed, position, distance and acceleration so every movement is perfectly smooth.
Sturdy Drive Wheel
Aluminum made U-Groove wheel with polyurethane coating ensures better gripping, enhances the drive with cable force and prevents slipping of cable. The PU coated wheel offers great resistance to any kind of wear & tear and improves operation reliability.
Balance Bar with Ronin Mounting Plate
The Rod support bar provides physical balance to setup and a fast interface for DJI Ronin Gimbal. Quick Release plate allows Gimbal operators to switch from cablecam to handheld stabilizer within seconds. From unpacking and rigging to shooting takes less than 15 minutes, this saves a lot of time and energy for your work.
Note: Sky-walker is compatible with Movi Gimbals but Movi quick release plate is not included.
High-Strength Dyneema Rope/Cable
The Dyneema rope/cable is 9mm thick, 100mtr long and has high upholding strength. Pick two points between 15 and 100 metre apart, attach dyneema rope, hang the Sky-walker and Ronin gimbal head, and you’re ready to roll. Large trees, very strong scaffolding, light poles or other firmly fixed objects can be used to anchor the rope; provided the objects can withstand pulling tension at the rope connection point. A manual ‘come-along’ winch is used at one end to tension the rope. It comes with a rope stand.
The Normal Operating Zone of approx. 84mtr is recommended, which is marked with points A & B. The Cablecam running at high speed takes around 5mtr of length for momentum to stop itself, which comes under Safety Zone. It is not recommended for your Cablecam running at high speed to move within 3mtr of Danger Zone. While selecting target distance lock points; it is suggested to consider speed & precautious zones.
To Create Beautiful Slow Motion Camera Movement Shots, we have the provision to attach an extra cable which is most favourable when driving your Cablecam at slow speed. It works in coordination with a small wheel/pulley on top and therefore, provides an added balance and dual safety to the whole Cablecam system.
NOTE: The extra cable is the steel cable.
Wireless Remote Controller & Antenna
The radio control system controls movements of Cablecam. The highly sophisticated radio transmission system works on 2.4 GHz powerful radio frequency band and transmits very clear signal to the receiver Antenna. The 2.4 GHz RF signal propagates in straight lines and can also get around objects on its path. The remote control system guarantees a long range, jamming-free transmission and long battery-life experience.
Turn it On – Turn ON the Power switch. The position of all throttle switches A, B, C, D; must be at #1 (while turning on the remote every time). The LCD screen of remote will display Tx On & Rx On when connected, and an error will be displayed if Rx is out of range.
Left Stick – It is used to give Direction & Speed to cablecam. Move the stick left/right to give direction and move it up/down for speed. When you start operating Cablecam – gradually accelerate the speed, to avoid damage to the cable.
Right Stick – It is used to Set Target Distance & Automatic Loop Modes.
– Target Distance (Manual mode) – Set Start and Stop points anywhere on cable by point A (move stick downwards) & point B (move stick upwards). After entering the target distance, the remote locks on it and follows it perfectly. Give Direction & Speed with Left Stick, and operate it manually. Once you leave the stick at neutral position, it will stop right there.
– Automatic Loop Mode – Select target distance by point A & B. Shift the throttle switch labelled SwC at position #3. Set the Speed with Left Stick and forget it! It will move and capture shots automatically for you.
