    You say it hasn’t been the same - what’s it doing?

    Low mode - docking position

    Hi Sam - I used to run a lower docking collar for low mode, but don’t anymore. In the old days, we flipped the whole camera and remounted it for low mode. It made sense to hang the rig from the bottom end so the camera was right side up for reloading, etc. Now, most people go low mode by simply flipping the rig and the image as well. For me, it makes more sense to hang the rig right side up (again, for ease of reloading, etc) and then spin it when I put it up to fly. It adds a half second or so, but I find the time... Hope this helps. - dk

    Gloves. Why wear them?

    Extra points for shorts and knee high socks.

    Brett - what do you mean no low mode without flipping the camera mounting?

    Suggestions for combating extreme sweat?

    I keep a bag of fresh shirts on the truck, and use a product called “Vapor Fresh” to keep my vest from getting up and walking away on it’s own. Georgia heat & humidity are a bitch even before you put the rig on.

    Wave-1 and Gyro combination?

    I’ve been mounting one gyro vertically on the post in conjunction with the Wave. Just had it up again yesterday, worked great.

    Wave-1 and Gyro combination?

    I had a successful build recently with one gyro on the post along with the wave. Bumpy dirt road, mounted to a Gator, tracking characters running through the woods on about a 170mm. Loved it, will definitely go that way again.
  14. Due to a very well intentioned (and slightly less well informed) loader placing the order to replace a couple BNC cables that were damaged on a recent job, Im now the proud owner of these: Im considering calling them *Extend-a-Barrels* or perhaps *BNSee if you can find a use for these*

    rig bed on the truck

    I just recently built this coffin. Got inspired when I saw a dayplayer utility drop his backpack on my furny padded sled... Its pretty simple, but I think itll do a better job of protecting it without having to buy another case.

    Need a name for this new product -

    Frederic that’s a great idea. Reminds me of years ago when an assistant I knew came across some glass panes that looked identical to 6X6 filters. He would occasionally pull one out of the filter case and smash it just to freak out a new 2nd...
