Hey All

So I have a RED gig on monday, and I'm worried i don't have enough batteries, but the owner of the camera has a bunch of red bricks. Is there any reason not to use them on the rig? I hanve an archer2 (vmount of course).

Hi Michael,

You can use them without any problem on the Sled. The only 'problem' you can encounter is that there can be a weight difference between your own batts and the red bricks. So some rebalance can be in order..

Enjoy the flight,

Cheers, Erik

Nope, no reason not to use the red batteries. Unless u don't have the power cable to drive the red from your sled of course!

I use them on my Steadyrig base all the time (through an AB to Vlock adapter plate)

Works great and you don't have the wear and tear on your batteries.
