Where do you read 22 lbs?

Payload is 48 lbs / 22kg

Unless you mean 70 minus 48 = 22 ?

i was told by their engineer robert that its around 13-14lbs +/-, somewhere around there 

 

still a prototype, not really a final product, so the weight may change. 

 

I do like their Fine tune tilt stage adjustment, no more guessing. 

 

(overall Satchler gimbal still being my favourite)

Why make the standard minimum post length so long?

I hope they plan to offer a compact version of the post as well, some of us like to fly short compact rigs....

• Eric,  22lbs is incorrect, it will be 13-14 lbs

• James,  the minimum post length isn't set in stone,  the rig collapsed, top stage to base will be 26" (66 cm)
