Stabilisation Systems for FS5

I'm interested in a stabilisation system for my FS5.

So far, the Freefly Movi M5 is getting my attention.

Does anyone have experience with this product?

Alternatively, are there any recommendations for similar products?

Regarding alternatives, I really like the Letus Helix Jr. with my FS5. Using it more and more. I find it a terrific combination.

See second half of this page.

I use the DJI Ronin-M. I have to remove the top handle and grip for it to fit properly, but otherwise it works great. I use it with the Sony 10-18 f4 lens.

Yup, another ronin-m user here. Very satisfied with the results! Mainly use it with a rokinon 12mm wide.

Thanks Andy.

I just found this informal comparison between the Movi M5 and Letus. Quite informative.

I'm particularly looking for something that matches the portability of the FS5, and this is a point that was raised in the comparison which was in favour of the Letus.
