Gremsy’s Pixy line is designed for compact performance.  The Pixy LR is specifically engineered to function as the perfect gimbal for the Sony ILX-LR1, maximizing camera benefits, and extending flight time during industrial missions.

With dimensions measuring 140 mm in length, 200 mm in height, and 115 mm at its widest point, and a standard weight of 495g (including the quick release), this gimbal is not only compact and lightweight but also equipped with powerful stabilization technology necessary for capturing outstanding photography and smooth video.


Pixy LR has been optimized for superior image stabilization when coupled with the following seven lens options:

  • SEL35F28Z,
  • SEL24F28G,
  • SEL50F25G,
  • SEL28F20,
  • SEL35F18F,
  • SEL55F18Z, and
  • SEL85F18.

This equips users with multiple combinations for their ILX-LR1 camera, allowing for an extensive choice of shooting angles and effortless adaptation to various scenarios without changing the camera. In addition, users can easily and quickly switch between lenses while the gimbal remains attached, enhancing both efficiency and convenience.


Pixy LR is the first Gremsy gimbal that incorporates USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) compatibility, making transferring, storing, and manipulating your images or videos easier and faster. The Pixy LR and new Sony camera combination promises to deliver excellent image quality, and ensures that detailed and accurate images can be captured through high-speed transmission.


The gimbal has an intuitive hardware interface with ports including POWER, CAN, COM, SBUS, USB 3.0, AUX, and HDMI. These ports make it simple to connect different devices like remote controls, third-party flight controllers, and extra accessories to power your camera setup. Pixy LR also supports GSDK (Gremsy SDK) and MAVSDK (MAVLink SDK) via UART interfaces. These integrated SDKs provide developers with customization and expansion capabilities, so they can develop applications tailored to their specific requirements.


Pixy LR features broad compatibility with essential platforms like Pixhawk, CubePilot, Skynode, Airpeak and M600, ensuring seamless integration into various systems and giving users the flexibility to choose from diverse drone platforms.
