At first, it might seem a bit complex but assembling the Moza Air is as easy as it can get. You need to put the batteries in the holder and attach it to the gimbal. Use the power button to start this thing. Place your camera on it and you are good to go. But it is recommended that you balance the three-axis after mounting the camera to the gimbal so that the motors have to do minimal work to keep it stable. Use the balancing screws to get it done.

After that, it’s up to you if you want to attach the dual handle and side handles or not. Attaching side handles will need you to use both your hands to use the system. But it increases your control over the camera.

Another good thing about Moza Air is the tripod. This helps the user to place the camera upright when it is not in use. It also comes handy when recording from a still place.
