My batteries barley stay in place on my Flyer 1st generation. The original insides to lock the bolt striped a year ago. I replaced with a nut stuck in place with sugru and longer screw on a kipp handle.
The nut started to not stick more often than not. I started using needle nose pliers when needed.
Currently using a wing nut to lock down with kipp handle. Hopefully for the first and last time.
I think its time to find a permeant replacement / Fix.
+ Not a fan of handing someone the rig in a car and always having my batteries change position.
can the flyer LE sled be placed on the ground without adjusting the batteries? If so maybe that is an option.
after searching the forum a bit I see DIY options ( anything simple? ) I know I have at least one option for upgrade with MKV.
What other options do I have for upgrading the battery hanger on the steadicam flyer 1st generation?
