  1. The only problems I can foresee would be the baby pin not fitting in the gimbal handle and the sled not clearing the stand itself. You could offset the baby pin from the stand either with an offset arm or maybe even a double header, if it's a very light build. I used to balance on a c-stand before I got an American stand. Nothing wrong with it but be sure to weigh the stand down with a sandbag and balance the Steadicam itself over the long leg, not in between legs to reduce the possibility of tipping.
  2. The Aero rigs are great starter investments, but you should definitely look into taking a workshop before you buy a rig. They're really informative and can help you decide if Steadicam is right for you.
  3. Hey Jens, it looks like PRO started making them again. $325 for the Short Wrap Grip on their price sheet.
  4. Looking to purchase a 2" grip wrap for my Archer 2. I can't seem to find who makes or used to make them - I've only ever seen them sold on this forum. Thanks!
  5. @Nick Janssen I'm selling my Aero-30. It's a great first rig and perfect for Alexa Mini and Red builds. Shoot me a message or email corey@coreyhess.com if you're interested.
  6. I can only imagine that it would be an absolute nightmare to balance. The monitor provides the third weight that would affect not only static balance, but dynamic balance and pan inertia. Unless you have some other mass to counteract the batteries, you would only be doing yourself a disservice by removing the monitor from the bottom of the sled.
  7. There’s a couple Master sleds for sale for around $11-12k. Definitely look into those first. They’re great rigs if they’re in good condition.
  8. Looking to finally upgrade from my Aero-30 to a big rig. I already have a Exovest, so I'm looking for an arm and sled. Was originally looking for used Archer2/G50x combo, but anything around that payload range will do. Ideally looking for something around $20-25k (preferably gold mount). Feel free to post here or shoot me an email at corey@coreyhess.com. Thanks in advance. Best, Corey
  9. The way you touched the cable and the signal started going in and out makes me think the SDI is bad. Can you try it with a different SDI to the monitor?
  10. Looks like a bad SDI port or BNC to me.
  11. I believe you have to be a Sustaining Member in order to post items for sale.
  12. Thanks, Kevin. I'll keep you posted if I go in that direction.
  13. Thanks, Kevin! I saw you got yourself a Master sled, very nice! Are you using a Master arm as well?
  14. I know a lot of people here started with small payload rigs like the Flyer and Pilot. I'm currently flying an Aero-30 but I'm starting to realize its limitations in the field (mainly payload and how much a little bit of wind can blow all over the place due to its lightweight nature). I'm considering getting a bigger rig, but I can't afford one without a loan or lease. I also don't really want to sacrifice quality for price by buying off-brand as I've been told it's a bad idea. At what point did you realize that it was time to upgrade to a bigger rig and how did you go about it? Would love any input. Thanks!
