It’s somewhat heavy, but it’s also very durable. I wanted something heavy in the first place because a problem I had with a plain skateboard was that my light-ass camera picked up every movement from the ground. Weighing it down helps to keep it a little more Bad Boys and a lot less Cloverfield.
Here is the SpiderTrax Dolly the build project was based off via MrCheesyCam/cheesycam.com
And this is the video I decided to use as reference for building my dolly via TheAussieInLA
I think I just leveled up my production quality. Ya Ta!
