Alexa Mini dovetail plate/baseplate?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

been using the zephyr and the alexa mini is having shakes - vibrations -

seeing if there is a baseplate to recommend for this?

 

Or is it the Zephyr - that has some kind of design flaws?

 

Is there an alternative in that pricerange that is better?

 

Thanks!
Ed

Hi Ed,

 

Have you determined that your baseplate is causing the vibrations?

 

You may simply need a stiffening system. Check out that section in the handbook and pick up some vectran. If memory serves, the Zephyr does not come standard with attachment points for vectran, so you will have to get creative about how you string it around the sled.

 

Happy flying!

Hi Ed!

Old post I know but I'm in the exact same situation as you with my Zephyr. Did you ever get some vectran? If so, would love to know how/where you attached it to your Zephyr.

what i do is use Peter Abraham's Zalex plate in conjuction with a 15mm rod bracket you can purchase at smallrig. 

 

I run the rods of the build into the 15mm bracket attached to the plate itself.. Good by shakes.
