The camera and the pairing work well. I use it to film soccer and sometimes it will miss some of the action in the corners as it is following the motion in the center of the field but overall it has done a good job. Live streaming as glitches, but I have worked through most of them. Step by step instructions for live streaming would have been helpful. I think once I figure out how to live stream on a different platform (Utube) I think things will be better. Also having a way to know if it has stopped live streaming when phone is 10’ in the air would be nice, maybe it could communicate with my watch.
iPhone app is not good. Will not show video in landscape without getting lucky. Tracking looses itself but works 75% of the time will search around for ball when out of bounds than takes a little bit to get back on target. I think I’m going to keep it and HOPE it gets better. I should return it and wait only because it has a 30 return window. Longer return window to test put would be better to test to know for sure. I only have 2 games under my belt as a test. A way to start and stop app from watch would be great. You have to have full 1/2 or full games then go,back and try to find cottage you want.
Set up from field-side and you're good to go. Enjoy the game while recording on its own.

What is Xbot Blink Focos?
Xbot Blink Focos is a smart tracking system designed for sports enthusiasts and their families. We can turn an iPhone into a fully automated camera to capture team sports with ease. Simple put your iPhone on our gimbal, along with Blink Focos App together, the system can automatically follow, record and live stream sports games like basketball and soccer games, with minimum interventions.
How does Xbot Blink Focos follow and track?
We use AI technology to detect the position of the ball and players, analyze the speed, pose and actions of players. Our patented algorithm will decide where the action is based on the information analyzed, and control the gimbal to follow through. In particular, all these are completed on smartphones real time. Even if the phone is not connected to Internet, it is still able to track and record. Please find demo videos at https://www.youtube.com/@XbotGo. All demos are shared by our real users.
How to set up Xbot Blink Focos gimbal?
Please have the following ready before set up:
- Xbot Blink Focos Gimbal
- iPhone X or a newer model with iOS 14 or newer
- Blink Focos App (downloaded from Apple App Store)
- Tripod (sold separately) or any other tripod with 1/4” head in screw
Put iPhone on Xbot Blink Focos gimbal, and setup the gimbal on a tripod on the side of the sports field. Open Blink Focos App, connect App with the gimbal, and then click the recording button and you can just relax. Xbot Blink Focos system will automatically track players, follow through the game, record it, and/or live stream it to whoever you want to share.
Note: we recommend the gimbal to be placed near the center line of the sports field. Otherwise, the tracking performance would be compromised.

Can Xbot gimbal be used as a handheld stabilizer?
Yes. Even though Xbot Blink Focos is designed to follow and record team sport games automatically on a tripod, it can be doubled as a regular handheld stabilizer for any occasions as well. Download the Gimbal Pro app for more features.
Where do you ship products from?
We are based in Mountain View, California, and we provide free shipping within the U.S.. We provide international shipping with fees and deliver in about 12 business days.
What is the product warranty and what’s the return policy?
Blink Focos provides 1-year warranty. We also provide 30-day money-back guarantee. Please check the return policy here for more details.
What tripod should I use?
If you are trying to record sports on a small field such as basketball court or 5v5 soccer field, you could choose our portable Blink tripod T1, which is about 4 feet tall and super easy to fold and unfold.
On the other hand, if your goal is mainly for activities on a large filed such as 9v9 or 11v11 soccer, we highly recommend you use a 12 ft or taller tripod. It will give you a better tracking performance and a much better view angle. We are still working on Blink tripod T4 and it should be launched on US market early Oct.
In both cases, the customized tripods should provide a great user experience. That being said, you could also choose a third-party tripod. Look for 1/4" screw in head. The majority of tripods on the market should support that and thus compatible with Focos gimbal.
How does cloud storage work?
For now, we wouldn’t charge anything for the cloud storage. Feel free to upload your videos there and share with your families or friends.
Can Xbot gimbal track individual player?
Individual tracking in team sports is very challenging. But we understand that our users essentially want to make the camera focus more on a specific person of interest. We are interested in making this happen in the near future. Please stay tuned.
What if I have questions and feedbacks?
You could let us know your feedback or even participate our Blink Beta program to help test new sports or new features. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Is there any subscription fees?
We don't charge subscription fee and there's no any hidden fees beyond the charge for the hardware.
