'B' rig, Flyer vs Flyer LE

Recommended Posts



I'm in the process of purchasing my first proper rig ( probably an Archer2...see my other thread ;) ) and have been considering getting a small rig to tide me over while I finalise the purchase (my old rig has given up the ghost) and to use for small student/dSLR type shoots where the Archer would be a bit OTT. I'd like a Flyer LE but there does not seem to be many around for sale, but there are a few Flyers knocking about. I was wondering, are the enhancements in the LE worth waiting and paying a bit extra for if it's just going to be a 'B' rig or is the original Flyer close enough to make it not worthwhile, especially if I have an Archer2 as the main rig? Any experiences with either would be great to hear about, thanks!

thanks guys, and those that PM'ed me too! the unanimous advice is not to bother with a small B rig so I will take that on board. It makes perfect sense thinking about the points you all make, mainly that a Flyer cannot be used as a backup to an Archer and I can fly the smaller cameras on the Archer with a weight plate anyway so not really any need for a smaller rig. I will bide my time and allocate the money towards kitting out the Archer with accs, cables, etc :)
