Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere.

Basically a friend is in a real bind and needs me to fly a red epic on my sd pilot tomorrow afternoon. I'm pretty new at all this and have a few concerns. One that it can handle the weight and two that I can connect to the monitor. I'd really appreciate any advice on these topics and anything else I may have missed.

Many thanks

If you have a small lens (eg. still canon mount) and few add-ons (smaller battery, no matte box) you should be able to get away with it weight wise.
Your SD monitor won't work. The epic will output an HD signal. When I had mine, I had switched in an HD Lilliput and just ran the HDMI along the sled with tie downs.
