Cramped Attic Wave modification

Recommended Posts

Here's another one of David Hable's masterpieces. He modified my Wave to provide power outlets and BNC's as well as a back-lit bubble level. Now the camera sits 2inches lower minus the weight of the Dbox and topstage. I use the XCS side-to-side plate in the Wave for balance within the Wave. I have side-to-side adjustment on my monitor for Sled balance.

The sled was a PRO Lite that has been upgraded to HD and the 2inch post and gimbal are MK-V. 

It's a fantastic rig that had become my pre-pandemic work horse. The loss of weight and height between the gimbal and wave allows me to keep the sled compact and tight to my body. I love it!

David is such an innovative  problem solver. There isn't much you can throw at him that he can't adapt.

David is awesome — this is a great mod (and what was originally intended when Greg first started playing around with roll correction). 
 

this would be so perfect for an XCS sled since it already has the x/y at the bottom. It could definitely work using only the side to side of Greg’s plate as a course adjustment but I would miss the fine corrections. That being said I want

This is pretty awesome.  Love the execution.  Just curious...what if your wave stops working and needs service?  Do you have another top stage to swap into the mix?

I do have a Betz top stage with the same modification on the way. Actually if the wave stops working I'll just operate old school. In fact David installed an on/off switch on the wave so there are times when I do deactivate the wave and fly old school. Since there's no extra height It's not a big adjustment.
