Hey everyone,

 

I've become increasingly frustrated at myself for not being able to achieve dynamic balance with a Flyer LE rig.
For a while I assumed it was just impossible due to the battery mount being a 'swivelling paddle' rather than something that can slide fore and aft. However I went back and checked out the manual and sure enough, it states that it can be done by rotating that battery 'paddle' up and down.

In theory I think I can understand how this is supposed to work however due to the rotating plate every time I shift the batteries 'in or out' and adjust the camera's for-aft, it also affects the bottom-heaviness of the whole rig and seems to throw things way out of whack again.

I suppose I am seeking any advice from those of you who have achieved dynamic balance with a Flyer LE.
I am losing confidence every time I attempt dynamic balance. Is it worth trying to refine my technique or should I just settle for static balance and wait until I can upgrade to a bigger rig?

Thank you in advance for your response.

 

Cheers,

Sam.

I had great luck with dynamic balance on the Flyer and Flyer LE. I had great luck by first finding and marking the center of gravity of the camera build. Place that directly over the center post. Then you use the battery paddle to find your static balance. Thats it!

Find a nice drop time by using primarily the gimbal placement and some post extension. I found that with most heavier builds (requiring 2 batteries) the paddle ended up almost straight down. Hope this helps!
