This project was successfully funded on September 16, 2012.

Get amazing cinematic video with a GoPro, iPhone, DSLR or RED. The most affordable, ultralight and versatile 48" slider ever.

FINAL UPDATE before funding period ends

We have 2 days left and we've almost hit 200K! The funding period will end on Sunday at 1:42 Pacific time. 

The more we raise the quicker we'll be able to develop accessories like the Motion Control system and the Expandable Rails. So, please post to Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail your buddies one last time. We are so grateful for all of your support!

Please look over your pledge and make sure that you have added everything you want. Also, if you're an international backer please make sure that you have added in an extra $65 to your pledge.

Early next week we'll send out a survey with a bunch of questions asking you what you was included in your pledge amount. Please be honest when that comes out because we will be double checking everything and it's hassle if the the numbers don't add up :)

Thanks again for your trust in Rhino. We can't wait to get these out to you guys and keep developing new products. Our purchase orders are mostly in and now it's just a waiting game. It looks like we'll be shipping towards the end of November if everything goes smoothly.

      Hi Justin- The extension rods will be a whole new set of rods. Because of the tolerances needed for a smooth transition you'd have to buy new sets of 4' rails. The other travel and original rails can attach to it but it wouldn't necessarily be a smooth transfer. We'll be selling the hardware with the new rails when they launch.

      Kyle-
      Like others, I can't wait to get my hands on the slider and the motor unit as well. Thanks so much.

      I'm curious about how the extension rods will connect to the original rods - do you provide hardware for this?

      Also, If I buy a 2ft' extension, will the proposed motor unit's belt be able to work on a 6' slide? Or will I need belts specific to a 4', 6', 8' slide, etc..?

      Thanks again,
      Justin

      Hi Maurice- Yes, it'll account for all of the options. Basically a long list of Yes or No questions. I can't wait to get these out to you guys!

      Hello Kyle,

      I messaged you a few days ago regarding this same question:

      In this update, you've asked us to: Please look over your pledge and make sure that you have added everything you want. Also, if you're an international backer please make sure that you have added in an extra $65 to your pledge.

      I pledged a total of $710.00... is the survey you mentioned above going to account for all of the options?

      Thanks, and can't wait!!!

      It'll probably be $50 with the counter-balance bag. Thanks for the congrats!

      What is the predicted price for the Slider Pulley System after the campaign ends? For curiosity sake. Also congratulations on the amount raised and the Rhino Slider won't arrive fast enough as well as a motor assembly for Timelapse.

      Hey Keith, thanks for the congrats! Are you talking about the Rhino Steady case or the Rhino Slider case? If you're talking about the Rhino Slider case add $60 to your pledge before it ends because the price will go up to $75 when the campaign ends.

      Hey Kyle,

      Congrats on your pledge amount - phenomenal! You're an inspiration! Quick question... I know I'll want a carrying case. Should I add to my pledge now, or just wait till they're manufactured? I wasn't sure since its not a line item on the pledge list.

      Thx... Keith
