This is an evolution steadicam flyer model, the stage is new and the sled has a dynamic balance. and the gimbal has the screw down, good would be able to buy the support of the zephyr with the monitor and the batteries to fit the flyer.

The Steadicam TANGO™ balances and feels like a single sled carrying all components. It provides a comfortable, centered operating position, even at full up/down boom. It incorporates rugged, all-mechanical construction and uses a conventional Steadicam sled plus the six pound Tiffen Tango extension. “There are no electronics, gyros, wiring, connectors or power-hungry components,” said Garrett Brown, inventor of the Steadicam. “It also has a large-aperture, interior cable-path for camera/CCU interconnection. With your eyes closed, it feels like a normal Steadicam.

Shot this bit of video of Garrett operating the Tango,


Very clever system, nice to see levers and pulleys in amongst all the computer controlled gizmos.

We should probably keep the discussions of these new systems in the previously begun threads so the conversation all stays in one place
