Finally got one of these, they are great but I think I will still look into a slider. You essentially still need to make some sort of track for it to handle uneven ground to get nice smooth shots.

here is a sample vid I did this past weekend.

    Nice! Cute kid. You managed to get some smooth shots with that thing. No rails, just rolls on the ground?

    Those things are pretty cool. I think you'd definitely benefit from a slider though for that type of use. I have a 1.5m Glidetrack Hybrid and love it. Good work though. I like your music too.

    Cool test video of your son. I was thinking of the same thing but using skateboard wheels, $90 for a set, a little to pricey. I love the wheels you are using and your set up. Where did you get the wheels at? For the rail system I was thinking of using a PVC pipe . So if the wheels are 1/2" either a 1/2" or 3/4" pipe cut in half. Thanks for sharing. Peace
