This component is manual. The Motion Module is not yet shipping, nor is the FlexTILT Head 2. They are projected to begin shipping 01/18. I have studied slider for over a year and thought I wanted several of the other ones at different times. With the iOS App, I am satisfied this will allow me to capture the type shots I want, particularly when integrated with the SOLOSHOT3. Similar to the PlatyPod Pro Max, the shipping box is nice.
