    Great setup Wilco !
    Please I need some information and advice if anyone could help me.

    I already have a NN Pole and footplate. And recently ordered the Rotator Mini RM4.
    There's any way to use the RM4 with a standard monopod or NN pole ?

    I just ordered a Gitzo monopod and would like to use my NN footplate with it.
    It will work or I will need to ask for a special footplate with longer stud ?

    Thanks a lot,
    Toni

    Hi Toni,

    I did not have this nice new rotator in my hands yet. Having a look to the pics, there are two pairs of sockets on top of the rotator: smaller and wider distance. To mount it to the footplate, you have to use the ones with smaller distance and rotator upside down. You end up with a 3/8" socket on top of this construction. Use the 3/8" screw that came with the pole to connect the footplate rotator combination to the Fanotec Pole. You need a 3/8" socket at the base of your monopod to use it with this combination. I hope, the Gitzo spikes use a 3/8" thread on top of their spikes. Then you are a lucky guy and can connect the footplate combination to your monopod directly. In case you like to use the RM4 on top of the monopod, just ask for a solution.

    Cheers,
    Heinz

    Hi Toni360,

    RM4 is new product and it is not available when I build up my rig. Gitzo tripod of monopod comes with 3/8-16 female thread inside. The thread was a little bit inside and I make special order to make longer stud for pole base rotator. If you use regular pole base rotator, the thread and screw mated only small part.
    I believe RM4 comes with 3/8-16 female thread, which you can use with Gitzo monopod in top of monopod instead of bottom. If you want to use pole foot plate attached to monopod, you need to make hole with 3/8-16 and use 3/8-16 nuts and directly attached to pole base. I will post photo of it by tomorrow.

    Is this rig for shooting pole panos over your head while you stand in one place?
