The Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB Creator Package includes the WEEBILL LAB gimbal and dedicated accessories that allow for an optimal workflow with the gimbal. The WEEBILL LAB supports up to 6.6 lb and features an innovative design that supports a mini tripod on top and bottom. In this way it provides an additional point of stability and an easy way to switch to underslung mode.
In addition to the accessories that come standard with the WEEBILL LAB, such as a mini tripod, the Master Package also includes a mini monopod, zoom/focus servo, two quick setup adapters, a phone holder, and a multifunctional camera belt in size large.
The monopod is designed to secure to a quick release receptacle on the camera belt and allow for more stable jib-style shots, with the weight of the gimbal taken off your hands and supported by the belt. Even without the belt the monopod can be used as a comfortable extension.
The zoom/focus motor is the Max version motor, which has enough torque to control zoom (whereas the Lite version is only strong enough for focus control). The WEEBILL LAB supports a single motor, and this one can be used interchangeably between the focus and zoom rings.
The Quick Setup Adapters let you attach the mini tripod and monopod to the gimbal by quick release functionality, instead of having to screw them in each time. And the phone holder will hold your smartphone on the side of the gimbal for monitoring. It supports up to 6.3" phones and can be articulated forward and backward as well as folded up when not in use.

WEEBILL LAB Handheld Stabilizer for Mirrorless Cameras
The Zhiyun WEEBILL LAB Handheld Stabilizer for Mirrorless Cameras supports cameras weighing up to 6.6 pounds. It features a removable handheld tripod which can be mounted on the battery bin as a grip providing additional functionality, as opposed to crowding all the controls on the primary handgrip. The gimbal has a nominal runtime of ten hours and requires two 18650 batteries. It is built using aviation-grade motors. The WEEBILL LAB allows you to connect and control select cameras via an included cable, and supports wireless transmission of the camera's video via Wi-Fi. Control over the gimbal and camera is by the ViaTouch Control System.
The gimbal features pan follow, full follow, locking mode, PhoneGo mode, Vortex mode, and POV mode. An included lens support is useful when working with long lenses and an external follow focus motor (not included) for pulling focus on manual lenses. A downloadable app allows you to fine tune and control the gimbal wirelessly. The included removable tripod holds the gimbal upright while balancing and folds to become an extension to the main handle. For compatible list of cameras and lenses see the "Compatible List" below the list of what's in the box.

TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller for Crane 3-Lab & WEEBILL LAB
The Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Max Servo Zoom/Focus Controller can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control on the Crane 3-Lab and WEEBILL LAB gimbals. It has a powerful-enough motor to control zoom, whereas the lighter-weight TransMount Lite is designed for focus control only.
The Crane 3-Lab supports up to two motors at the same time, and it's recommended to use the TransMount Max and TransMount Lite together if requiring both zoom and focus control on the Crane. The WEEBILL, however, supports only one motor, so the TransMount Max is recommended as the only solution because it can be used interchangeably for both functions.
Featuring a toolless design, the TransMount Max attaches on the gimbal using just the included thumbscrews. It can be controlled via the gimbal handwheel or the companion smartphone app. Secure it to the supplied support bracket and mounting rod using two thumbscrews, and attach this assembly to the bottom of the gimbal's baseplate with the third thumbscrew. Then connect the servo to the gimbal with the provided USB cable, and connect the camera to the gimbal with one of the camera control cables the gimbal comes with. The USB cable connection provides zero-latency signal transmission.
Can be used interchangeably for zoom and focus control
Recommended as the zoom solution for the Crane 3-Lab, which supports two motors at the same time, and as the sole solution for the WEEBILL LAB, which supports only one motor

TransMount Quick Setup Adapter for Crane 3-Lab & WEEBILL LAB
The TransMount Quick Setup Adapter from Zhiyun-Tech is a quick release adapter for instantly attaching mini tripods and monopods to the Crane 3-Lab or WEEBILL LAB gimbal. It consists of two parts—one screws onto the tripod/monopod and the other to the gimbal's tripod mount, and the two simply click into each other. To detach them, you just need to pull back on a collar. The adapter prevents having to screw and unscrew a tripod/monopod each time. Featuring a 1/4"-20 male/female design, the adapter can also be used independent of the gimbal for various accessories, such as monitors.
Two units are recommended for the WEEBILL LAB because the WEEBILL offers two locations for attaching a mini tripod—one on top and one on the bottom. With an adapter attached at each of the two locations, your mini tripod can easily be moved between one and the other to switch between standard and underslung modes.
The Quick Setup Adapter features a robust aluminum construction.

TransMount Phone Holder with Crown Gear for Crane 3-Lab & WEEBILL LAB
The TransMount Phone Holder with Crown Gear from Zhiyun-Tech is compatible with the Crane 3-Lab and WEEBILL LAB. It secures on the side of the gimbal and is adjustable to hold phones up to 6.3" wide when the phone is held in landscape orientation. It also articulates forward/backward and can be folded up when not in use.
TransMount Multifunctional Camera Belt (Large)
Designed to support the TransMount Mini and Telescopic monopods, the large-sized Zhiyun-Tech TransMount Multifunctional Camera Belt provides a point of stability for anything you mount on the monopod, including a gimbal. When the belt is used with a monopod and gimbal such as the WEEBILL LAB, the additional point of balance allows for substantially more stable and comfortable jib-type shots and lets you control the gimbal's focus wheel more easily. The belt also has military-grade strips along its length for hanging accessories such as lens bags and the TransMount Baseplate.
For securing the monopod, the belt features a receptacle suspended on a hanging strap. The receptacle has a removable quick release 1/4"-20 mounting platform that screws into the bottom of the monopod and then pops in and out of the receptacle by quick release functionality. Two registration pins on the receptacle lock into a groove on the 1/4"-20 mounting platform to lock the two together.
