Although the TB3 is made from extremely durable materials, it is important to keep it protected when traveling. Here are some rules of thumb to follow:
1) Always keep your TB3 in the carrying case provided by eMotimo when traveling. See image for orientation below:
2) Remove the camera plate (fotomate) when traveling. fotomate instructions
3) Older models of the TB3 have the pan motor mounted with an acrylic bracket to the top plate. This piece of acrylic can break off of the top plate if the TB3 is handled poorly. When traveling you can remove the entire top-plate and pack it with heavy padding to ensure its safety. If this older mounting system is a concern of yours, you can pick up a new top plate that mounts the pan motor with a metal bracket to the top plate. We are now offering these for $35.00. We do not have this item listen in our store. If you are interested, please reach out to us at:
