Does anyone have a suggestion for powering both a bartech and a microwave transmitter at the same time from a flyer? I saw somewhere someone had their sled modified to have a few 2 pin lemo's but I have a shoot in a week and prob don't have time for all that work. I'm sure Ill have it done after the job but for now has anyone made a Y adaptor for 2 pin lemo or should I make one my self? or will that kill everything?

One solution is to have a box made that goes from the Flyers two pin lemo to an anton bauer 4 way P-Tap breakout box. Then use P-Tap power cables for your accessories. Can also add a female lemo to it so you get 4 P-Taps and can still use flyer power cables. Terry West should be able to make it happen(or a straight up Y if thats what you want). Of course once you do this you will have to worry about that amount of power you can pull through the sled wiring but bartech and wireless video shouldn't be a problem.

If you are in the LA area right now, Terry West can probably have you set up with your y-cable or maybe even your bigger plans, assuming he is around right now. He jumps to the pump when called into service.

I wouldn't be messing with soldering Lemos unless you have done it before.

This is what I use. I had Terry West build it with a "pass through" for the existing 3pin LEMO on the top stage of the Flyer LE
