Thank you in advance!

Google the manual for the FS 700 to see if it'll do it. You'll still want to test that you can get the proper signal through that monitor before you go to set though.

Otherwise, you can use a downconverter SDI to Analog: Blackmagic Design: Mini Converters Tech Specs
Or update your monitor to a HD (I don't really know if 100% doable on the flyer)

It sounds like you are maybe confusing the signal type with the connectors? You can't tell the type of video signal by the connector type. SDI pretty much always uses BNC connections, but so do analog connections: composite SD, often labeled "video", and component SD or HD, (YPbPr).
RCA video connectors are simply a consumer/prosumer-grade connection for composite or component. Adapters can be put on one or the other end of a cable to adapt to the connection you need.
The Flyer's sled has a BNC connector, but it is SD only because of the monitor, which is SD composite only (and because the cable is not rated for the higher demands of digital signals).
You need to research the 250 to see if it offers an SD composite output. If so, a short cable with the proper connector to the sled is all you need. Same with the 700.
If this explanation doesn't make sense, then I recommend you dig in and do some online research to master a basic understanding of video signals types and connections.

try this and see what you get.
go to the "output selection" and choose "downconvert" on the first choice "sdi&hdmi".
then go to "downconvet mode" at the same menu tab and choose what you want (letterbox,squeeze,crop..squeeze for a widescreen monitor).
i think this will work if you want to use bnc cables and not rca directly from the video out as alan said.
i 'll check the manual too to be sure

As far as i know, the 250 cannot output HD-SDI and composite video at the same time.
there is a need to select downconvert under output options.
i am not sure if the fs700 has composite video out. you might have to get a BMD or AJA convertor to convert SDI into analog for framing.
