Buying used steadycam flyer vs pilot

Recommended Posts

Hello all. 

I'm starting to use and learn how to operate the steadycam. I have the option to buy a used steadycam in great condition. 

I'm using my sony fs5 with the shogun inferno with the set of veydra mini primes  (25,50,85) most of the times and the sigma 16/1.4. 

I'm  filming documentry, short scripted  segmants for online series, corporate and music videos. 

My Current budget allows me to buy a used flyer or pilot in my country. 

It would be great if you could assist me with this matter. 

Thanks, Erez

 Hi Erez 

I would buy the flyer over the pilot for several reasons .

1. The Arm will carry a larger range of cameras .

2. The vest is far more substantial and better fitting then the pilot .

3. The sled, the top stage ,dovetail plate is far better then the pilot large plate.

All considered the Flyer for me is a more versatile rig and you would use it longer then the Pilot .

And Please it's Steadicam No Y ok 

All the best
