A have seen a mediocre review on YouTube where the FlexTILT Head 3D was shown as squeaky after assembly. But to be honest, the printed parts in the review didn't look very nice. I have to say that I have made no bad experience nor that the material is squeaky after assembling the printed parts and the metal parts. I have printed the parts in black PETG instead of PLA just to have some more temperature resistance. Everything moves fine and with the tension of the screws you can adjust the strength of the friction very good. If you have a good 3D printer this is a very good alternative to the full metal product.
The Product is great. For very a easy shooting style it allows me to put up the camera wherever I want in a manner of seconds. When its to much hassle to put up a tripod I mostly used stacked Cards to angle the camera, but now I use the FlexTilt. But the most amazing thing is the Product freedom we are given here. Not every Company lets you just make their own products in whatever colour you want and with any modifications you like. Some even don’t let you repair their products, so this is just an amazing step from Edelkrone to allow small creators into a world of premium products and for makers to put on their own spin.
The head is nice. I like the fact that it allows camera to lean over e.g. slider and not just tilt like normal head. I also like that I can adjust it with one hand. I will probably order another one for my DSLR webcam soon. Printing takes some time with Prusa MK3S+ and I had my share of warping issues before using glue. Probably because of lower quality filament (but I wanted that color). One screw in this kit, and another on the Skater kit I also bought, had thread issues. At this price and quality point, I would expect Edelkrone would have used a better screw supplier. Unfortunately M3 screws are not the easiest to find, luckily I had one from Prusa kit left.
I 3d printed the parts and the result is awesome and already used. Nice
It really works well. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the top most part where the camera gets mounted. The two parts have nothing that fixes the connection. Therefore you have to use some extra glue to help it. Some kind of mechanical fixation would be awesome.
Works like it should

As a hobbyist, this was a perfect product. Really easy to print and assembly is very easy and clear with both printed and video instructions. Really helpful in allowing for quick flexibility in product photography and can easily be adapted for other applications. Really happy with the quality (of both the 3D files and the metal hardware shipped) and functionality.
Everything fitted perfectly and snugly. Nothing bad to say works like a charm and the 3D models are extremely well designed with easy printing in mind
I love being able to print most of the parts at home and assemble it from there. This one acts as my second FlexTILT Head as I have an original/metal one which I mainly use, and the feel is pretty comparable, particularly for my GH2.
Very good experience and great quality of finish
Very Good Build Qualität. Ì´ve recommended ist to my Friends. For sure Not the Last Part from edelkrone.
After three values are finally managed to print everything properly. Sadly one of the free stream of the camera mount screw was Broken, So I needed to fix it myself
TOPPPP weiter so ich freue mich auch viele weitere Produkte
Very positive. I like the quality and it is very helpfull to record good shots!
It's great. It's not aluminium of course, but it's still great. Go for it, you won't regret it.
