I'm looking for reviews on some of the MK-V upgrades, specifically the Genesis monitor arm (can't find a thing about it), the "flyer upgrade" base system (on Flyer as well as Pro system)?  Not having much luck with Google or the search engine here.

I was curious about what the upgrade would do as well for my Flyer.

There might be a reason you can't find much on them.

 

I suggest that there are better places to be spending your money

I've been emailing back and forth for over a week now, they are in the UK, and the response time is pretty slow, it's been hard to make out details of the products on the description pages and from the email responses.  So I was hoping someone made actual reviews with photos and in depth description :(

Yeah, it takes a while for an email to get all the way to the UK.

Do you have any suggestions, we would like to hold onto the flyer.  We already have a pro rig for bigger jobs and love having the flyer for smaller jobs.

why would you change anything on the Flyer if you have a PRO rig as well?

If it helps you help me, we have two rigs, two operators, and like the flexibility of being able to double book and/or choose the small rig for lower budget / small camera shoots.  The flyer bottom stage is at its EOL right now and we would like to replace it with something more functional; furthermore, we are very interested in the fact that the MK-V parts are interchangeable and can eventually be migrated from the flyer to the pro rig or another rig.

Hi Michael,

 

I used to have a Flyer with the upgrade and it changes the rig for the better. PM me if you want some details and pics and we can exchange contact details.

 

Cheers,

 

Paul

I would email Howard directly, when I wrote him a few months back on a few questions about possible upgrades he responded each time next day or within a few hours.

I emailed Howard as well to ask about the flyer upgrades that are available. On his site he has a section dedicated to the flyer. http://www.mk-v.com/?p=1568
