Introducing the JTW ANT series. This listing is to reserve an FireANT from the first batch. No deposit and no obligation. 

Ants are nature's powerlifters and our own ANT is no exception. It boasts a 15 kg payload. The ANT has backlash-free harmonic drive derived from our larger Chimera mount and is the premium edition that will redefine portability. The FireANT has dual axis encoders is backlash-free. This system is ultra portable and the mount head fits inside the tripod for compact transportation

The entire system fits inside a 12 cm diameter x 40 cm tube and weighs under 5 kg, thanks to the carbon fiber/aerospace aluminium construction. An optional 5 kg ballast weight is shown under the tripod. One step beyond the ballast weight is a powerbank that functions as a ballast weight and provides through-mount power. This system is small and light enough to go in a backpack, airline carry-on luggage, long hikes, etc. There's even room inside to store accessories and an optional powerbank.
